The annual Kids Do It All music-theatre program is a week-long day camp during the months of June and July. During the sessions, CSU theatre faculty and CSU upper classmen guide hundreds of students in different age groups (7-9, 10-11, 12-13) through the entire process of theatre - from playwriting to performance, from design through musical composition - resulting in original plays created and performed by the campers. Camp participants write, design and compose musical plays entirely of their own, experiencing a practical application of all aspects of theatre from acting, movement, voice, props and scene design, and songwriting.

“Kids Do It All” can offer a limited number of partial financial awards. If your situation qualifies your children for financial assistance, please supply details we could use to consider your request. The senior camp staff of the camp will rank requests and offer partial tuition assistance to as many children as funding and space allow. Please send a confidential e-mail to Debbie Swann before March 31.

To fill-in their plots and characters, camp participants spend one morning in the Gregory Allicar Museum of Art, with the afternoon spent composing their own gallery of art that tells their stories without words. Participants also work with neutral and character masks, improvisational exercises, design, playwriting, and composition studios, finishing with a fully mounted production of their original work on the sixth day, a Saturday, where parents, family, and friends are welcome to attend!

Kids Do It All, one of the most innovative theatre programs in the country, was founded in 1991 at The Children's School in La Jolla, California by CSU Professor Walt Jones. Kids Do It All will be under the guidance of its founder, Walt Jones and co-directed by Debbie Swann, CSU acting instructor.


Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Saturday Performances are at 10 a.m. (call time at 8 a.m.)
