2015 is officially Jacksonville’s Year of the River! In celebrating this theme, with a myriad
of other cultural organizations, Camp Theatre Jacksonville campers will star in CURRENTS - a
riverboat ride full of theatrical frivolity, musical showstoppers, and dancing to boot. During each of our 4-week sessions your child will delve into theatre arts through classes in acting, musical theatre, dance, and improvisation. Led by our team of professional and trained instructors and directors, these weeks of training will culminate with Currents hitting our stage with the star power of our incredible campers!
The first 3 weeks of each session will take place at San Marco's Trotter Activities Center (1435 Atlantic Blvd.) The final week of camp and all performances will be back at Theatre Jacksonville.

For each one of our mainstage productions, we offer local middle, high school, and college students the opportunity to attend the show's final dress rehearsal for the cost of $2.00 per student. Each area Drama and English teacher is sent a flyer for the upcoming student night performance and is told the seating availability is on a first-come, first-served basis. This arrangement benefits the students and the performers, by providing a low cost opportunity for a much needed "sneak preview" audience.
The theatre offers area students $10.00 student "rush tickets" of our mainstage productions. These tickets are available at the box office the day of the show, five minutes prior to the opening curtain based upon availability.
Our Educational Outreach department publishes a student study guide to correspond with each of our mainstage productions. These study guides summarize the script, provide a glossary, include background research, and offer interpretive questions helpful in bringing about class discussion and a better understanding of the script. These guides are offered, free of charge, to local middle and high schools. Guides are usually prepared a week before a show opens and can be downloaded from that show's webpage.
The Theatre Jacksonville Training Center is North Florida's premiere learning facility for actors of all ages. With a staff of highly trained, working professionals, we strive to educate the individual in a welcome and challenging theatrical environment. No matter your age, level of experience, or area of interest, there are classes for you here at the Southeast's oldest continually-producing community theatre. Our program consists of classes for both children and adults ranging from weekly acting and vocal classes, to special workshops and master classes taught by regional performers and educators. The goal is create and foster a love for the theatre arts in members of the community and to train them in the major performance disciplines.
At theatre Jacksonville, we strive to nurture the creativity of young minds through out Young Actors program. Our mission is to provide a safe, comfortable environment where kids can express themselves freely, develop their imaginations, and expand their social skills by interacting with others their age. Theatre helps build important life skills, self esteem, and confidence, all while providing students with fun, enjoyment, and a sense of accomplishment! All young actors theatre classes conclude with a showcase performance.
Through the use of theatre games, creative improvisation, and scene work, we'll explore subtext, believability, and the importance of being in the moment. While one class covers the basics of acting for beginners, the other will include advanced concepts of creating relationships and playing an objective. Text used will be provided by the instructor. Come prepared to have fun and try something new or strengthen the acting tools you've already acquired!.
