Theatre Summer Camps


Coordinator's Welcome

Welcome! My name is Chris Nelson, Coordinator for the Liberty University Summer Arts Program. We are gearing up for Summer 2017 and looking forward to continuing the mission of providing a safe environment for students to train, excel and experience the performing arts.

Our LUTC program, which includes our elementary and middle school day camps, will start off the summer. These day camps provide local students with an opportunity to spend a week or more with us learning the ins and outs of theatre. Within the rehearsal process, students learn vital lessons in team building, responsibility and self-confidence.

KIDS Ignite is back again this summer! This camp experience is for students who have completed 4th, 5th or 6th grade. KIDS Ignite will teach students how to communicate the gospel using drama ministry and encourage them to get excited about sharing the loving message of Christ. 

The summer will conclude with Acting Uncut, a residential high school experience where students from all over the United States and the world spend 9 days with us here at Liberty in a challenging and rigorous acting program. These students will interact with Liberty Theatre faculty in small master classes, collaborate with current theatre majors, experience Liberty University up close and personal, perform on the Tower Mainstage and enjoy the freedom to integrate faith and art. It is truly one of my favorite times of the year, interacting with and mentoring talented and teachable young artists.   

Registration is now open for all programs, and more details will be added to the website as the year progresses.
