Black Arts MKE announces youth performing arts summer camp

March 21, 2019

Black Arts MKE will offer an all day, four-week performing arts (musical theater) free summer camp for low income Milwaukee youth ages 12 to 18. Youth will be challenged to choose a story to adapt into a 45-minute musical theater performance, write the script, songs, audition, and rehearse the play. They will discover their unique talents in design by creating set and simple costume pieces.

Facilitated by Bronzeville Arts Ensemble and Black Arts MKE performing teaching artists, performing arts summer camp includes meals and will feature eight (8) culminating performances for youth, their families and the community.

There is no cost to qualified low income Milwaukee families.

The camp will be held at Rehearsal Hall A, Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, 123 East State Street, Milwaukee, WI, 53202

The sign-up deadline is June 1, 2019. For more information visit the Black Arts MKE website at or contact them at info@blackartsmke. org or by calling (414) 270-4494.
