Honored by the New Jersey Senate, General Assembly & County Freeholders for Artistic Excellence & over 25 years of service to children in Middlesex County.
Theater Camp is back for our 29th Season! Theater Camp at Middlesex County College under the direction of Taubenslag Productions runs for 8 weeks during the summer for kids entering 1st grade up to 16 years old. Whether they want to perform, create sets or costumes or be a counselor-in-training, we’ve got something for everyone. Campers can learn about all aspects of musical theater while we focus on building their confidence & self-esteem. All levels of experience or no experience at all are welcome! Theater Camp teaches kids how to use performance & theater arts to break out of their shells, use creativity & come alive on stage - giving them the life skills needed to succeed! Our motto is, “When you try you’re best, you can do ANYTHING” - by the end of summer, our campers really see this come true!
HOW IT WORKS
During the first 6 weeks, campers will produce an elaborate musical production EACH WEEK. Weeks 7 & 8 are reserved for the annual “Broadway Spectacular”. Roles are provided for ALL CAMPERS. That’s 7 shows in 8 weeks, giving all kids a chance to shine! Performances are held every Friday morning on the Main Stage at 9:30 am & 11:00 am & are open to the public.
MORE THAN JUST THEATER
Each Friday afternoon there’s also a cast party complete with music, lights, dancing & contests with prizes. And Theater Camp is more than just theater! After morning rehearsals, afternoons are filled with fun activities including swimming every day, workshops, improvisation, outdoor & indoor games, kickball, relay races, charades, scavenger hunts, contests, carnival & much MORE!
UNDER DIRECTION OF TAUBENSLAG PRODUCTIONS
Held on the Main Stage of the Performing Arts Center on campus in an air-conditioned & clean environment, Theater Camp is directed by the award-winning Children’s Theater Company, Taubenslag Productions & supervised by New Jersey Teachers with combined experience of over 50 years in teaching & children’s theater.
3 SPECIAL TEEN PROGRAMS
"Tech" for campers 12 to 14 years old where they function as the stage crew; painting scenery, organizing props & sewing & designing costumes.
“Teen Scenes” for 8th, 9th & 10th graders where they take a deeper dive into performance techniques while preparing a special teen production in both Session 1 and 2.

Our Counselors-in-Training (CIT) program is also very popular with Teens. See our website for details.
