Students – children and adults alike – come through our doors with their own reasons for attending an acting class.

Some want to enhance their acting training and technique, some want to gain confidence in their skills, some want to meet people with similar interests, some just want to try something new. No matter the reason, students of all ages and experience levels are welcome at QCT. Here they will find classes taught by trained theatre professionals, as well as a safe space to explore and deepen their understanding of the performing arts.

Triple Threat Boot Camp

Camp: August 5-9, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
Showcase: August 10 at 7:30 pm

Application Deadline: July 12

We are seeking students ready for an intense week of training in singing, acting, and dancing. Intended for the serious performer, the Triple Threat Boot Camp is a week-long workshop instructing students in the musical theatre disciplines. Students are divided into age-appropriate levels, working in the mornings with professionals to learn the skills needed to become top-notch performers. In the afternoon, students implement the skills learned during the day in a rehearsal for a revue of Golden Age musicals at the end of the week. Even the most experienced performer will find this camp to be invaluable! Tuition includes a t-shirt and two complimentary tickets to the showcase.

Please hand-write us a letter explaining why you would enjoy being a part of the Triple Threat Boot Camp. Please be as specific as you can-don’t hesitate to give examples of why you enjoy performing, and perhaps include some past experiences you’ve had with acting, singing, or dance. The registration form must be accompanied by this letter. For students new to QCT, please include the contact info of a non-relative to serve as a reference.

Submission of the registration form and letter does not automatically guarantee a place for the student in Triple Threat Boot Camp. Do not include payment with the registration form. Families will be contacted by July 19 as to whether or not the child has been accepted into the camp. Payment is due upon the Student’s acceptance into the camp, no later than July 26.
