BAMtheatre’s unique Broadway Workshop Series (BWS) is the perfect summer camp for any kid who has a theatrical side! Each camp session offers a unique show and is skillfully designed for a specific age group. In all camps, students learn the foundational practices for musical theatre: singing, acting, and dance. Each session culminates with a final performance where each student gets to shine! Enrollment in each session is limited to guarantee the best experience for all students involved.

The World Health Organization has declared the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) a worldwide pandemic. Due to its capacity to transmit from person-to-person through respiratory droplets, the government has set recommendations, guidelines, and restrictions that BAMtheatre intends to comply with. At this time, we are very hopeful that our 2021 Summer Programming will commence in person and include live performances! The health and safety of our community is our top priority and we will continue to evaluate our programs as needed.

We hope to see you for some much-needed theatrical fun this summer!!

Registration for 2021 Summer Camps is Now OPEN!

Interested in a camp that's currently full? Please email us and we will add you to the wait list. 

Rehearsals & Performances will take place at a location in the Hinsdale or Clarendon Hills area. We are currently planning on rehearsals and performances to be in person at a venue where outdoor and indoor spaces will be available to our campers. We will continue to reassess our plans and follow the COVID-19 guidelines, always prioritizing the health and safety of those involved. Currently, Illinois is in Phase 4 of the Recovery Plan. We have developed program structures for every phase of the Illinois Recovery Plan. While it is our goal to meet in person for this program, if it is necessary to alter the program structure, we will do so. By registering for this program, students agree to participate in all program structure variations. To better understand these plans, please refer to our BAM COVID-19 Policies.
