TYKEs KidStage at the JCC

Summer Theatre for Kids Entering Grades 3 to 6

KidStage campers sing, dance, act, imagine and collaborate to create exuberant on-stage performances. It’s the best of both worlds: theater experience at Rochester’s #1 ranked children’s theatre PLUS fun in the sun including daily swimming and outdoor games. KidStage offers your budding thespian individual attention from our team of professionals, bolstering self-esteem, confidence and individual expression in a fun and nurturing environment.

How I Became a Pirate

August 8 to 19 (two-week session)

Sail off on a fantastic musical excursion when a band of comical pirates lands at North Beach looking for an expert digger to join their crew. Braid Beard and his mates enlist young Jeremy Jacob as they look for the perfect spot to bury their treasure. Jeremy learns that adventuring can be lots of fun, but love and home are treasures you can’t find on any map. 

Your camper will love flaunting their pirate swagger in this hilarious swashbuckling musical adventure based on the world-famous book by Melinda Long, adapted by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman. Outstanding character parts for any gender. 

Performance dates: Thursday, August 18 at 5pm for family and Friday, August 19 during camp. Kids must enroll for both weeks.

CSN: Back by popular demand!

August 22 to 26 (one-week session)

KidStage campers invent their own quirky, wacky summer toys and foods, then create TV commercial spoofs extolling their clever benefits on CSN (our Camp Shopping Network). Un-meltable ice cream, floating slip-n-slides, sand-castle-building robots, chocolate pool noodles – the sky’s the limit to our campers’ creativity!
