Camp Casa


Music by Mary Rodgers | Lyrics by Marshall Barer | Book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller and Marshall Barer

If you thought you knew the story of ‘The Princess and The Pea,’ you may be in for a walloping surprise! Carried on a wave of beguiling and hilarious songs, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are, you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

June 25-July 15, 2018
(No Camp July 4th)
Performances of Once Upon a Mattress are July 13-15. 



What is Camp Casa?

Camp Casa is a three-week long musical theatre summer camp for ages 8 – 14 and open to all skill levels, from beginners to accomplished young professionals. Campers take daily classes in acting, music and dance, and best of all, perform in a fully-produced musical on Casa’s main stage!

What’s a typical day like at Camp Casa?

Camp is Monday-Friday, 9AM-5PM. Campers are divided into small groups according to age and are assigned at least one dedicated Camp Counselor. On a typical day, campers will spend half the day rehearsing for a show, while the other half of the day is spent taking classes in acting, singing, and dancing focused on giving your camper the skills they need to succeed on and off the stage.

Play Early and Stay Late options are available for nominal fee (space is limited and all sales are final.)

How do the performances work?

After a day of fun and low-pressure auditions, campers will be given their parts. But don’t worry – every camper will get to be in the show! Most campers will be assigned to one of two separate casts. Each cast receives two performances.

How much does Camp Casa cost?

The cost of Camp Casa is $1,100, plus a non-refundable $50.00 registration fee. A $160 per camper deposit option is available until 5/31/18. The remaining balance is due on 6/4/18. See payments and policies for more information.

What if my summer plans change and I need to cancel my registration?

You may cancel your registration up until 60 days before Camp Casa begins. You will receive a refund of the balance, less the $50 registration fee.  After that, you agree to pay your remaining balance unless we are able to register someone from the wait-list to fill your spot.  You will forfeit your $50 registration fee, even if we are able to fill the spot.

How and when can I register?

Registration is open now! You must register your camper in the appropriate age bracket according to the age they will be on the first day of camp. Once a session has filled, you will be able to register for our waiting list. We will contact you immediately if a spot opens up! Please let us know as soon as possible if you wish to be removed from the wait list at any time.

Is Camp Casa right for my child?

Camp is a fast-paced environment with lots of transitions, occasional use of loud music and strong lighting, and requires students to work well as part of a group. If your child has sensory processing challenges or has a history of difficulties with this type of environment, please contact the education department at 817-321-5040 to discuss whether camp will be a good fit for your child.

Who can I contact if I have additional questions about Camp Casa?
