Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School & Camp announces its 109th summer season!

Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School & Camp is the oldest performing arts camp in the country! Founded in 1913, the list of former students and faculty is long and includes everyone from Julie Harris to Jessica Biel, Stephen Schwartz to Corey Hawkins. Perry-Mansfield believes in multidisciplinary education, small student-to-faculty ratios, boasts a beautiful mountain campus in Steamboat Springs, CO, and a legacy of professional industry teaching artists and faculty from top arts universities in the stage (full list of teachers here).

This summer, Perry-Mansfield is excited to be in full swing again, offering three intensive summer theater and musical courses for students entering grade 5 through high school graduation. (Intensive dance classes are also offered.)

All theater intensives culminate in a full-scale production under the supervision of Perry-Mansfield Theater Manager Jeffrey Huard of Broadway. This season, Perry-Mansfield is delighted to present THE LOUDER WE GET, with book by Kent Staines, music by Colleen Dauncey and lyrics by Akiva Romer-Segal. THE STRONGEST WE GET says to the true! story of Marc Hall’s legal battle to bring his boyfriend to his high school prom. He had no idea that standing up to his school principal would spark international news at the time and now become another hit musical! Winner of 6 Broadway World Awards when he took the stage under the direction of Lonny Price at Theater Calgary. Be a part of this show before it’s the next musical theater sensation! THE LOUDER WE GET will be performed by Perry-Mansfield High School students.

Also on the bill this summer are NEWSIES JR (presented by students in grades 7-9) and ADDAMS FAMILY YOUNGER @ PART (presented by students in grades 5-7), both under the direction of Broadway’s Abbey O’Brien (WAITRESS, JAGGED LITTLE PILL).

The full schedule of theater and dance performances can be viewed here.

All intensives are by audition only. An online audition with Jeffrey Huard will take place on Sunday, April 24 (details here.) Auditions are also being accepted through Perry-Mansfield’s online audition portal (details here.)
