Bridgeport Theatre Company, now completing its second season, is proud to offer a summer musical theatre camp for kids grades 1-8. Of the 8 main stage shows that we have produced thus far, 4 of them (including hits like "Seussical" and "The Music Man") have featured over 50 local children, and we look forward to continuing to foster the talent and growth of these young actors. We are also excited to branch out and meet new young performers through our summer camp, and to be able to focus so much attention on theatre education.
