EDUCATION @ THE HIPP

About the Hipp’s Education Programs

The Hipp provides quality arts education for all ages. The region’s most dynamic and experienced teachers lead our camps and classes. Children are supported as an individual in a non-competitive, enriching environment through a spirit of inclusion, acceptance, and positivity. The Hippodrome also offers a growing roster of classes for adults, including Hipp-provisation, Scene Study, Storytelling, and multiple Play Observerships in conjunction with the Mainstage season.

Upcoming Youth Courses and Camps

After much consideration we have decided to cancel our Spring Break Camp.

We believe this is a conscientious response to our community’s current health concerns and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Hipp Kids Camp

June 1-5, June 29-July 3 & July 27-31

Full and Half Day Options Available
Session two can be selected day-by-day!

Ages 5-8

This summer, Hipp Kids will bring a story to life on the Hippodrome’s second stage. During each one-week session, campers will exercise their bodies, voices and imaginations while learning their roles and developing their characters. They’ll have fun collaborating on behind-the-scenes elements of props, costumes, sets and lights. Then, each Friday, when each camp performs their play, we’ll all delight in what they create and share with us on stage at the Hipp!

Summer Spectacular

June 8-26 & July 6-24

Ages 8-18

This three-week intensive, taught by seasoned professionals, is designed to give your child a glimpse into the performing arts. Campers will explore a wide variety of theatre concepts, including improv, playwriting, stage combat, costuming, musical theatre, and other fun activities. The camp will conclude with a Mainstage performance where the students can show off everything they learned!

Join us this summer and explore the classics as we take the well loved children’s story  The Wind and The Willows, Lion and Mouse Stories and Harriet the Spy from the page to the stage!
