Join us for a 3-week skills building and project-based program, focusing on the individual interests and talents of each student. Throughout this online theater intensive, you will participate in masterclasses led by professional theater artists, create lasting connections with fellow campers through exciting camp activities, and collaborate with Gamm staff and masterclass teachers on a one of a kind personal performance project that will culminate in a live YouTube broadcast.

Creating a robust and enriching virtual program is our main priority, however, we are aware that in-person meetings, with rigorous cleanings between meetings, are allowed. To that end, we are currently exploring the possibility of optional in-person meet-ups on Fridays at the Gamm Theatre. These will be scheduled in July once camp begins. Meeting capacity, duration, and location are subject to change, students will participate at their own risk.

To be a part of GSI, please submit an audition video of a 1-3 minute classic monologue to kate@gammtheatre.org. Please include your name, school, and grade. Videos are due on June 25.
