Taubenslag Production's Theater Camp at MCC was honored by the New Jersey Senate, General Assembly and Middlesex County Freeholders for artistic excellence and over 25 years of service to children in Middlesex County.

Seven Performances Give All Kids a Chance to Shine!
During the first six weeks, campers will produce an elaborate musical production each week. Weeks 7 & 8 are reserved for the annual “Broadway Spectacular”. Roles are provided for all campers. Campers rehearse Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 12 noon and perform their musical productions twice every Friday morning on the Main Stage of the MCC Performing Arts Center. Fridays’ shows are at 9:30 am and 11:00 am. See our website for the full show schedule, Our Camp Website Link: www.taubenslagproductions.com

Theater Camp is More Than Just Theater!
After a lunch break, our afternoons are filled with tons of fun activities, including swimming every day, scavenger hunt, tie dye, charades, sing down, relay races, carnival, Mardi Gras, outdoor games, theatrical workshops, dances and MORE! Then during our last week of the summer we divide campers into two teams for Color War!

Fantastic Fridays.
Fridays are truly fantastic at Theater Camp! First, our campers perform for a packed audience on the Main Stage of the MCC Performing Arts Center. Two shows are held every Friday; at 9:30 am and 11 am. After lunch and a quick dip in the pool, there's always a fun-filled cast party to celebrate the performance and cap off the week’s activities. Cast parties are complete with current music, lights, group dances and contests with fabulous prizes. And each week the cast party is themed, such as rock star day, Halloween dance, pajama party, dress as your favorite superhero, beach bash party and Theater Camp prom. It all adds up to a summer full of excitement and fun.

Camp Trip to Broadway! (Session III only)
For full-day campers, Session III provides a chance to experience the magic of seeing a professional show in NYC; some for the very first time. The selected show will be announced in the spring.

We also have two additional options for kids 12-16; Tech and Teens Scenes

Tech Option for Ages 12 - 14 (Available Sessions I & II only).
Instead of rehearsing and performing in the weekly shows, we also offer campers in 7th, 8th and 9th grades the option to participate in “Tech”. From 9 am to 12 noon, Tech campers build sets, paint scenery, organize props, and sew and design costumes. During performances, Tech campers function as the stage crew, making sure that sets, scenery, props and costumes are in place. This is an option that requires maturity and the ability to follow direction – perfect for learning what a crew does to make each theatrical performance a success.

Teen Scenes Option for 8th, 9th & 10th Graders (Available Sessions I & II only).
In Teen Scenes, participating kids have the opportunity to learn more advanced theater and acting techniques and prepare a special teen production. The show may consist of monologues, scenes, songs or a complete drama, comedy or musical that features all teens who want to participate. At the end of each 3-week Session (Session I and Session 2), the “Teen Scene” show is performed for parents, community members and all Theater Campers. Also during each of the regular Friday performances, those in Teens Scenes will act as ushers and theater managers, giving them the opportunity to develop new skills. We expect all teens that are privileged to participate in this special program to adhere to the program rules and be ready to work each and every day.

Check out our website for an example of our daily schedule: Our Camp Website Link: www.taubenslagproductions.com
