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 (2017-18 school year).

At this popular camp, children, in age-appropriate groups, spend half of each 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.

Exclusive to camp session 1, a final performance highlights the weeks' “ed-ventures” for family and friends.


Session 1:
$400 - 10-day camp

Session 2:
$200 - 5-day camp
Registration for this session is full. Email to be added to a wait list.

8:50 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (check-in begins at 8:30 a.m.)

After care is available until 5:30 p.m. for an additional $15 per day.
