Texas State Theatre Camp

Texas State University and the Department of Theatre and Dance are committed to excellence in the camps' workshops, teaching, and productions. We are committed to the process of training and production that encourages thinking, responsive individuals in a diverse society. We view the training and practice of theatre as necessary and integral to our lives. Workshop participants, Texas State faculty, and Camp Staff are dedicated to providing the students an environment for optimum learning.


During the two weeks of our camp, students will participate in theatre classes taught by Texas State University faculty and guest instructors.  Each student will audition for and be cast in a one-act play that will be performed for an audience of family and friends at the end of the two weeks.
