Each child must bring their own lunch and water. Lunch break is held in the courtyard of Milford Arts Council (weather permitting). NOTE: There is no snack break. Please make sure your young actor is fed prior to camp.

Are any packed lunch items prohibited?
Summer Theatre Camp is not an allergy-free environment, so any reasonable lunch items are welcome. We do not have adequate refrigeration to refrigerate each camper’s lunch.

Is Summer Theatre Camp appropriate for children with physical disabilities or developmental disorders?
We try include singing, dancing and acting as a part of each child’s experience While we try to make our program accessible for each child, it may not be appropriate for children who cannot handle the physical or developmental demands of learning an original musical in five days.

How does Summer Theatre Camp handle casting?
We feel every role is important to every show. And each child will have the opportunity to read/audition for roles. Some young actors are anxious to play the lead role, and some are happy to have a smaller part. And we know, not everyone will get the part they desire. We ask for your support and enthusiasm following casting.

When and where are Summer Theatre Camp performances?
Performances are on the Friday of each session at 3pm. Each performance is approximately 40 minutes in length.

How do I buy performance tickets?
Admission to performances is free! Since seating is limited, we ask each family to bring no more than 4 guests to the show.

Do I need to purchase costumes for my child?
We will email a ‘costume idea list’ following the first day of camp. We’re hoping you will not have to spend a penny on costumes--will keep the idea list very simple. Hopefully you can achieve the suggested looks with clothing items you may already have. Pantochino will provide specialty costume pieces (hats,vests, animal ears, etc)
