Youth Theatre Carson City

Footloose Summer Intensive! - June 28 - July 29, 2021

Create a fully staged musical in 4 weeks! Open to youth grades 6-12+ (High School graduates of the class of 2020 and 2021 are welcome to audition)

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage in this exhilarating adaptation of this Oscar and Tony-Nominated Footloose the Musical. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren isn't prepared for his new home, or the ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to gain control over the town's youth, including his own daughter. To the rockin' rhythm of its top 40 score, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.

Physical distancing and safety precautions will be strictly enforced. If camp is canceled due to circumstances outside of our control, registered families will be notified as soon as possible and full refunds will be issued.

Lake Tahoe Music Camp is a sleep away camp committed to providing a memorable and exceptional musical education experience for music students (completing 6th – 12th grades*) each summer. Situated on its own private beach, Lake Tahoe Music Camp offers jazz and classical music workshops, clinics, performances, one-on-one mentoring and instruction with award-winning University faculty, guest conductors and professional chamber and jazz musicians. In their free-time every afternoon, students can play basketball, volleyball, ping-pong, swim in the lake, canoe, kayak, participate in organized recreational activities or just take a nap in their cabin. Students stay in cabins with other children their age and gender. Camp concludes with a final concert for parents and friends before students are picked up to go home. Many students return year after year because of the camp’s fun atmosphere and outstanding musical experiences. *Students completing 6th grade may participate with approval from the Camp Director.
