Historic Embassy Theatre
125 W Jefferson Blvd

SCORE is not an ordinary summer arts camp. It is an extensive three week workshop that enlists middle school students to form a fully operational theatrical production company, complete with a name, logo, staff, an artistic ensemble, a mission statement and core values. After the production company is formed (under supervision of industry professionals), the company proceeds to conceive, write, compose, design, build, market and perform an original opera. From scratch. In three weeks!

Support young, brilliant minds!
