Each summer Starlight Theatre partners with our neighbor, the Kansas City Zoo, to offer Act Like An Animal Camp for children currently enrolled in Kindergarten through grade 4 (2016-17 school year).
Each session of this popular, interactive camp meets for two weeks. Children, in age-appropriate groups, spend half of each camp day at Starlight exploring theatre arts and learning specialized theatre skills, including acting, movement and music. During the other half of the day, campers journey to the zoo to enjoy hands-on interaction with animals, take tours, create crafts and play camp games.
A final performance and camper art display highlight the weeks' “ed-ventures” for family and friends.
$400 – 10-day camp
Campers need to bring a lunch each day. Snacks are provided.
8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
After care is available until 5:30 p.m. for an additional $15 per day.

"I really was impressed by and appreciated the daily emails and photos. The summaries helped us put into context the million words per minute our daughter excitedly bubbled and sang to us about her day."
- Kristina Anson, parent of 2016 camper
"It was so fun for me to see my 8-year-old blossom from not being sure about performing, to practicing his moves at home, singing to and from camp, and performing with confidence."
- Jovanna Rohs, parent of 2016 camper
"This was the most organized and well-run program my daughter has ever attended. I was impressed with everything from the parking security to the final performance. She came home every night energetically exhausted!"
