"Pantochino is the most creative, kind and genius theatre camp while still being affordable, efficient and nurturing"
Pantochino’s wildly popular Summer Theatre Camp is presented by the Milford Arts Council at the MAC in Downtown Milford. It has been dubbed by the campers as “The Most Fun. Ever!” The appeal and acclaim of the camp is a reflection of what we do—100% original and completely unmatched programs for actors and audiences. Here at Pantochino, we are not teachers by trade. We are professional theatre artists working in the industry—actors, director, composers, dancers, designers—who love sharing our experiences with young people. We believe this is what sets us apart, and makes our camps the most fun. Ever!
SUMMER THEATRE CAMP
THE MOST FUN EVER IS MORE FUN THAN EVER!!
Each session of Summer Theatre Camp is a unique five-day experience. In this short time, our campers will learn, rehearse and perform an original musical written expressly for Pantochino. We’ve reimagined stories like Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid and turned it into “The Ethel Mermaid,” where one tiny mermaid longs to be on Broadway! At Pantochino, Aladdin gets a 1960's super groovy make over and Little Red Riding Hood journeys to the wild, wild west! You get the idea.
Pantochino’s Summer Theatre Camp is conveniently located in Downtown Milford and is a very affordable option with no registration fees, no advertising obligations and no hidden fees. Parents and families can actually see the performance without any ticket cost! We also offer discount rates for campers booking multiple weeks or for siblings attending camp together!
