Willy Wonka

May 30 - June 9 
9 A.M. - 1 P.M.
Ages 5-10


In this two-week camp, students in our younger company get the opportunity to dive deep into acting, singing, and dancing through community building, theatre games, scene study, and musical rehearsal.  Young performers will have the opportunity to explore wacky characters and classic songs in this heartwarming, hilarious story as they work towards putting on a share-performance for friends and family.

***Willy Wonka is now sold out. Please click below to be added to the waitlist. If a spot opens up, members of the waitlist will be contacted one at a time. You will then have 72 hours to register before the spot is offered to another camper.


Willy Wonka camp and performance will take place indoors at the Dance Art Media studio in Littleton's Bowles Marketplace:

8996 West Bowles Ave. Unit K2
Littleton, CO 80123

Willy Wonka will culminate in a final performance where students show off what they learned to family and friends. The performance will be held at 12:00 p.m. on June 9th in the same location as camp.

Auditions and Casting

Every student is guaranteed a role with at least one line and one solo upon registering. Auditions simply help us to determine which spot each performer will enjoy and gain the most from. Summer camp is a great opportunity for every young actor to break out of their comfort zone and have a chance to take centerstage, so every camper will play a featured role.

Auditions for Willy Wonka will be run workshop-style on the first day of camp; no prior preparation is required. The cast list will be sent out by the end of the night on May 30th. We do our best to find a role that each child will be excited about, but please remember that in Stagebugz shows, there truly are no small parts.  Additionally, many factors go into casting a show, and not receiving their desired role is not a reflection of a child's level of talent.  

Sample Camp Day

Each day of camp is a little bit different, as we tailor lessons and activities to best fit the needs of our students.  However, every day will include rehearsal time, a special skills workshop, games, and team building.  Each day will include two longer breaks for snacks and/or lunch, as well as frequent water and restroom breaks as needed. Here is what a sample day might look like:
