There is still time to register for Summer Drama Camp at Greenbrier Valley Theatre. Camp runs Monday, July 21 – Sunday Aug. 3. Summer Camp is offered to children age 5-14. A performance on Aug. 3 will showcase the skills students learned over the course of the two weeks.

Students in GVT’s Summer Drama Camp experience intensive study in theatre arts.

Camp culminates in a showcase written, developed, and produced by the students.
