Professional Summer Theatre and Acting Summer Camp

About our Summer Camp

Inspiring artistic excellence in our youth

At SVST, we hope to inspire artistic excellence in the youth of our community in a professional environment. They are the future! Instructors will be preparing students to step into their perspective career field with the appropriate resources, fundamental tools, and decision making abilities to continue their interests and passions on their own during the school year. Each individual student will receive training in specific technical skills to set them above the bar in a competitive field. Through routine practice of physical and mental discipline, they will develop an awareness as they learn from each others’ strengths and weaknesses while setting aside differences and learning by example to come together to achieve a common goal.
