Camp Description

Welcome to CYT Houston’s 2020 Summer Stock Experience! Summer Stock Backstage Ninjas is an intensive, immersive two-week workshop designed to teach and hone the skills necessary to be part of the backstage and technical crew for our Summer Stock production, Willy Wonka Jr. 

Please note: Backstage Ninja students are required to have a higher level of maturity suitable for working with power tools and backstage sets. Please consider if this an appropriate camp for your child.

Being on stage is only one aspect of a show, and an actor is only as good as his/her crew.  As a Summer Stock Backstage Ninja, you will learn how to provide the support needed to make a show possible in this behind the scenes technical intensive.

Outcome and Goals:
  • Learn the basics of lighting and how to operate a light board

This Summer Stock camp is designed to teach skills and highlight the talents of the behind the scenes crew. Our qualified staff provides the best in theater knowledge with an emphasis on Christian values.  You too can be part of this exciting adventure to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory!
