make your summer matter
ACT Louisville Productions will offer in-person Summer Intensives. We will follow all CDC guidelines and offer campers an incomparable week!
Many camps are an opportunity to discover the arts. This intensive is for young performers who have already discovered their love for performing and want to take it to the next level.
Grow as a performer, artist, and professional — all in one week!
Camps are for students entering Grade 3 through those entering College as of September 2021. Each week will help young performers grow in the disciplines of singing, acting, and dancing.
We also bring industry experts to Louisville so you learn from the pros! This year's panel includes Broadway professionals Shoshana Bean, Nikki Renée Daniels, Jeff Kready, Leslie Rodriguez Kritzer, Michael Potts, and Gerry McIntyre.
Students that complete the week's training will perform a showcase in front of a live audience at Iroquois Amphitheater prior to the professional performance of The Wizard of Oz July 30-August 2.

We start with a placement screening so we can identify where you are developmentally. These screenings allow our staff to select audition pieces for you BEFORE you arrive! Students are grouped based on age and ability.
PRO TIPS: turn your phone to landscape or horizontal to film. Make sure the background is free of clutter — a plain wall works great. Shoot the song and monologue from the shoulders up. Do not zoom in. Make sure you have lots of light so we can see the color of your eyes. Make sure the area is quiet.
Send us a video and include the following:
A 1-1:30 minute contemporary monologue from a play, or a clipping from a young adult novel. Make sure your piece is age appropriate. Show us your range!
32 bars of an upbeat tempo contemporary musical or pop song. A single instrument karaoke track works well or a cappella.
:30 seconds to 1:00 of movement or dancing— freestyle to an upbeat tempo song. If you are a dancer, show us what you've got. If you're not, show us how you move to the music.
A 1 to 2 minute personality clip. Tell us who you are. Do you have any relevant experience? What goals do you have for training? What areas do you need help with the most?
