Philadelphia’s only ALL scholarship camp.

At Philadelphia Theatre Company, we value the immeasurable benefits of exposure teens to the creative process.  We have also made a commitment to the youth within our city- regardless of their means.  As such, for the past three years we have decided that it is imperative that we offer our high quality, innovative and unique camps solely through scholarship – 100% tuition-free.

ActOut Saturday

ACTOUT SATURDAYPhilly Reality 2017

ActOut Saturday is a ten-week long program focused on acting, directing, playwriting, movement, improvisation, character development, and more!  Students will work as an ensemble and create their own ten minute play to debut on our stage during Philly Reality 2017.

No matter your level of experience, PTC’s ActOut has something for you.  While mentored by the education staff, the students are solely responsible for artistic decisions. Ultimately they create art that interests and excites them.  Students will also have the opportunity to see PTC’s main-stage production of Having Our Say!

When: Saturdays from January 7 – March 11 , 9:30AM- 12:30PM
Where: Suzanne Roberts Theatre
