COVID-19 Response

A Message

from the Act One Team

Our #1 concern is for the health and safety of the students who will be involved in our programs.  For this reason, the decision was made last spring to move our summer camp from the beautiful Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA to the online platform Zoom.  We were extremely sad to not be able to use the Alex, and we were definitely nervous about moving the entire camp to a 100% digital format.

But to our pleasant surprise, it was amazing!!  Not only did we have truly astounding young actors join us from all over the country, but we even had students from all over the world jump in: from Canada, to Mexico, to Uruguay, and even as far away as Saudi Arabia!

Each session brought more and more eager students from all over the map, and we were able to create some truly magnificent pieces of art.  Their final movies were awesome, and are now a digital memory that they'll be able to share and re-watch for years to come.

We had so much fun this summer, that we didn't want it to end!  This Fall we held our 8-week, Shakespeare inspired program, Act One After School.  And this past December we said bye-bye to 2020 with our 2-week program, "That's a Wrap!"


We're extremely excited for Summer 2021, and we hope you'll join us!!

Is Act One Theatre Camp definitely going to be online for Summer 2021?

January 10th, 2021:

At this time, we don't see a safe, viable option for us to hold an in-person summer camp here in Los Angeles.  From all that we've read and been told, it appears that the Covid-19 vaccine will not be widely available to everyone until early Fall 2021.  So while some of our campers and staff might already be inoculated by Summer 2021, we cannot guarantee the safety of our entire camp population.

Act One Theatre Camp will be holding our Summer 2021 camp ONLINE.

Of course, your personal situation may change, and there's really no telling what might happen between now and this summer.  If you have any questions about our Refund Policies, please refer to our Act One Camp FAQ page, or contact our Camp Director, Mr. Josh.

Wondering how the Final Movie is going to work?

Check out some of the original movies

that we created during summer camp

Written and edited by our summer camp teachers, these fun and entertaining movies are fantastic examples of how we can provide creative and engaging acting opportunities for all of our students.  These actors were given a script and a few pointers on how to film it... and they were off!  Under the supervision and guidance of their teachers, they came up with all of their own make-up, costumes, props, set designs, and accents.  Many of them even had their parents and older siblings chip in to help read lines off-camera, giving the whole family a fun and memorable project that they worked on together during these Stay at Home times.


And it was so easy for the actors to do!

All the footage was shot on cell phones, and sent (free!) to our teachers via Dropbox, Google Drive, or WeTransfer.


Grab some popcorn and ejoy the shows!
