Experience theatre....at Chan DT Musical Theatre Camp!
Celebrating 20 years!


Since 1994, Chanhassen Dinner Theatres has offered musical theatre camp for kids; an educational camp program that's also terrific summertime fun. Kids and teens, ages eight to eighteen, are given opportunities to explore a wide spectrum of musical theatre components including voice, movement, costumes, scenery, stage combat, improv and more. All sessions are taught by professional members of the Chanhassen design, choreography and acting teams! The Chan DT Musical Theatre Camp student experience truly stands out above other "theatre" camp programs.

Kids sing, dance and play their way through an extraordinarily fun camp week. Campers will learn songs and dances, create fun crafts and put on a mini-performance on the final day of camp.  KidStar will be fun for both boys and girls of any ability level – NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!
