GTSA takes place Monday–Friday 8:30 am–5:00 pm. Drop-off as early as 7:30 am and pick-up as late at 6:00 pm. Students can register for one, two, three, or all four weeks!

Students laugh and learn as they participate in age-appropriate activities and instruction, and rehearse and perform their own play. Gamut Theatre Summer Academy (GTSA) is a summer theatre intensive for students ages 8-16. Students are immersed in the study of Theatre, Dance, Voice, Improvisation, Stage Combat, and Writing. Our accredited teaching staff is comprised of caring, creative, and highly talented teachers and professionals who specialize in working with children.

No theatre experience is necessary. Each intensive takes place over one week and culminates in a Friday night production starring the students. Students may either bring a packed lunch or bring money to eat in the Strawberry Square Food Court. Registrations are accepted on a first come, first served basis.
