This five-day theater camp will engage kids in exploring imagination through games, developing unique characters, original art, songs, and stories, and challenge inhibitions by allowing a place to just be silly and weird. At the end of the camp we invite the parents and friends to come see a short showcase of all the creative work we have done.

Maggie Smith started her theater education at age four with the Dallas Theater Center’s children’s classes. Upon discovering an art form that could channel her need for creativity, drama, and plain old silliness, she realized from a young age that theater was something she could never give up. For children, who often have to grow up so fast, theater can be a thrilling and inspiring cultivator of imagination and an inviting venue for socialization. It grants a medium for kids to express themselves without fear of criticism, to find individuality in themselves and others, and discover creative and courageous abilities they can be proud of. Maggie was hooked after finding real lasting joy in these kid’s acting classes and continued her career throughout high school and into college, earning a degrees in performance art and psychology. She recently graduated from the University of North Texas Theater Department in 2011 and has worked professionally in Dallas/Fort Worth for several years. Now she hopes to provide the same kind of exhilarating, memorable experiences in more young ones and animate their senses of imagination and uninhibited joy through theater.
