Desert Theatreworks Announces KidsWorks Summer Camps

Desert Theatreworks (DTW) KidsWorks Summer Musical Theatre Camp is coming back to the Indio Performing Arts Center! DTW is happy to announce that this successful summer theatre program is presented in partnership with the City of Indio and Pathways Academy.

The program will run June 25 through August 3, with performance dates to come. This year, DTW is offering two separate programs, resulting in two different fully-staged musicals. The AM Session (9 a.m.-12 p.m.) is for young performers aged 7-12. Students will not only perform in a musical but will also learn prop, set and costume design. Youth in the AM Session will work for nearly six weeks, with four performances of the musical, Disney’s Aladdin Jr..

The PM Session (12:30-4 p.m.) is for youth aged 13-19 and follows a more mature curriculum than the AM Session, culminating in the finished product Legally Blonde Jr..

Cost is $600, and scholarships are available for qualified students. Not all students applying for scholarships will be accepted. Registration opens March 19, and will remain open until June 15 or until capacity of 60 children per track is reached. Parents are encouraged to register early.
