Drama Camps

Your destination for Summer Break fun in Overland Park!

Grades 1st-8th

Small Group Sizes

Fun All Week!

Choose a summer camp where your kiddo will be included and never get bored!

You have lots of options, and your child is counting on you to find a camp that has what you need:

  • Small group sizes for plenty of individualized attention
  • Activities that are fun, different, and serve their sometimes short attention spans
  • A place where they can be silly, be themselves, and have a healthy way to grow their confidence

Our Drama Camps

They are packed with fun activities throughout the week while the kids prepare their own show!

Let’s Make a Show!

All week long, the kids will spend time practicing lines, learning the basics of acting, and working together to perform an amazing show on Thursday night.

Arts, Crafts, and Fun Rooms!

Each day they’ll get to do arts and crafts projects that relate to the theme of their show. Also, they have free-time rooms with foosball, air hockey, arts & crafts, legos, and a disco room!

Daily Dance Routines

Kids also have an option to learn a fun, short dance routine to perform for each other, and for parents during their shows.

Thursday Night Shows!

Your kiddos work hard all week for their Thursday night performance! Students are divided into groups of 15, and there’s one show per group. Shows are approximately 20-30 minutes in length, and every kid has a chance to shine!

Show Times:

Shows are performed for the families on Thursday nights, between 4pm-7pm. Your specific scheduled time block will be announced after camp begins. By Monday afternoon you’ll know your time block for Thursday night.  Plus, there are no tickets to our shows. Bring all the friends and family, the show is free to watch!

How long will the show last?

We know how hard it is when you’re expected to stay for an entire evening of performances. To make it efficient for the parents we put the shows in blocks of 2, with each show block lasting about 45 minutes. After your child’s show block you do not need to stay for other performances! Come, watch your kid be a star, and head on out!

Fun Fridays!
Pajama/Movie-Making Day!

The day after the performance we have a celebratory Pajama Day! Kids come in their coziest of PJs and play games, create crafts, make movies, and have a relaxing, fun day. The students get to show off their creativity by making a movie of their choice and at the end of the day they sit together for a watch party.

 

We send the video to the parents that day so they can always keep proof of their creative genius!!

 

Fun Friday Highlights:

  • Create their own costumes/props
  • Make their own sets
  • Create their own characters
  • Make an original movie
  • Watch the movie that day
  • Get a free copy to keep and share

camp testimonials

We had another great experience with Mr Miles this summer. My kids love coming here! The staff is friendly and always professional and they really care about the kids.

We did another drama camp and it was OK, but the Theatre of the Imagination folks are top of the game.

Ms Kathleen taught my kiddo and she just raved about all the theater terms she learned. Plus the skit was hysterical. Mr Miles wrote a speech for my daughter to say in the play and we were rolling with laughter. Now we hear that speech every night at dinner.

Having my daughter build her self-confidence has always been my goal. She is finding it here. She wakes up early excited to go.

I cannot recommend Theater of the Imagination highly enough.

- Mary L., parent at Harmony Elementary school

I give this place five stars because my children still want to come here year after year, even though we do other camps also.

They have attended drama camp here for seven summers. It has really prepped them with a high confidence level of getting on stage. It has also gotten my daughter ready to audition for her middle school play.

My son used to be shy, not anymore! Now he gets on stage with no fear of public speaking, singing or playing an instrument. This is remarkable to me, as everyone in my family is afraid of the spotlight.

My kiddos are now able to learn and memorize so many lines inside of a week-long camp, and Mr Miles keeps adding lines when my kids want them. I believe they can take the skills they learn here and apply it towards serious acting work in the future if they desire.

- Michelle R., parent at Pawnee Elementary

I went to Theatre of the Imagination as a kid, and it was an extremely rewarding experience. I am 20 now and still have life long friendships from when I was 11 years old at camp.

Theatre of the Imagination gave me a chance to express myself and feel comfortable around others. I love acting and creating shows.  It all  started here then led me into the theater program at my high school.

Nine years later I now teach at the camp. I get to help these extraordinary kids find their voice. I have seen shy little kids shine on stage in a show.  It is an incredible thing to witness!  This camp feels like my second home. Cant wait to come back next summer!!

- Allison S., former student and current teacher at Theatre of the Imagination

Your kiddo shouldn’t get lost in the crowd during camp!

Whether you are looking for Summer Drama camps or just something to keep your kids engaged over Spring Break, we know you want to find a place where your kiddo can go during the days to feel great and be included. But it’s hard if you choose a camp that’s too big, too boring, or leaves them feeling alone.

We believe kids at camp should be able to thrive and get the attention they need, so they can grow in confidence and have fun. That’s why we love hosting drama camps every year, because we can create small group sizes, provide a variety of fun games and activities, and make sure every kid gets a part in our shows.
