Young Actors Theatre Offers Performing Art Summer Camps


June 26-30, 9 am – 4 pm
Ages 11-15

Join Young Actors Theatre to create a play at the IMA. YAT directors will help campers create and perform a site-specific performance on the grounds of the IMA! We don’t need a stage when we have the whole museum to play with! Campers act, create props, costumes, marketing materials, and more! Our audience can experience the IMA in a new way for our final performance during camper exhibitions.
