People's Light SummerBLAST: A Theatre Camp that Starts with Curiosity

February 17, 2023

Whether your child is a theatre newcomer or a full-fledged young artist, SummerBLAST has a space for everyone! People's Light is a nationally-recognized, non-profit theatre in Malvern that offers year-round theatre education programs. This year's summer camps, for students entering grades 2 through 8, take place at the picturesque Duportail House in Chesterbrook as well as People's Light rehearsal rooms and stage.

SummerBLAST isn't your average theatre camp: instead of starting with assigned roles from an existing play, participants get to be both creator and performer! SummerBLASTers work together to transform their curiosity into stories and characters that reflect the world around them, through exercises that build confidence and creativity.

SummerBLAST 2023 includes three sessions:

  • Actor's Gym (entering grades 5–8): A week-long session to energize and inspire all levels of acting experience
  • Story Lab (entering grades 5–8): SummerBLAST's signature 3-week exploration for young theatre-makers
  • Story Finders (entering grades 2–4): A two-week journey that teaches kids how to find stories and use actor's tools like voice, movement, and collaboration

All SummerBLAST sessions meet Monday–Friday, 9 am–4 pm.
