Ages for which our activities are most appropriate: 
"1 of 25 summer Schools for the Arts" – The National Endowment for the Arts. For over 20 years, Traveling Players has trained young actors of all levels –from beginners to pre-professional. Our programs are small by design and awarded for excellence.

“A little-known summer gem for the budding actor”

­– The Washington Post. 

For more than 20 years, Traveling Players’ acting camps & conservatories have been small by design and awarded for excellence. The National Endowment for the Arts places Traveling Players in the top 25 in the nation for summer arts training.

Each cast only has 13-14 actors and 2-3 tech students, ensuring everyone receives exceptional, individualized training. The result? Real transformation, a tight & supportive ensemble, and a 70% retention rate.

Our students don’t just shine on stage, however. They shine off stage – with remarkable growth in independence, confidence, and close friendships that truly last – throughout middle and high school, and into college. That’s the Traveling Players difference. A kind, vibrant, joyful community where young artists are happy, can be themselves, and find “their people.”

Our holistic acting programs simultaneously ground kids in a connected community while expanding their understanding of the world.

"A transformative experience! My son and daughter have attended Traveling Players programs for many years.  It is the most important activity in both of their lives. The instruction in classical theatre is incomparable.  The outdoor skills and experiences are phenomenal. And the friendships and close, supportive community of kids are priceless.  Go!"
