High-quality, dynamic theatre education that builds skills & confidence.
We pride ourselves on our ability to teach theatre skills while providing a unique, unforgettable experience.
Our camps offer kids a chance to be immersed in the world of theatre: a world of focus, experimentation, and creative play.
Led by Pier One Youth Theatre alumni, these camps are driven by students' energy and ideas.
Through hands-on, open-ended practice, students gain social skills and learn about responsibility, self-reliance, cooperation, and empathy. Activities engage their bodies and minds as they stretch toward creative goals.
Every student leaves with a new understanding of their own potential, and skills that will serve them in both the theatre and the world.
Pier One Theatre offers a series of day camps for a wide range of ages and skill levels.
Limited tuition assistance and payment plans are available.

In this action-packed adaptation of the classic adventure story, precocious Mowgli grows up believing he's as fierce a wolf as any of the members of his pack.
When he learns he is actually a human, he must discover how to reconcile these very different identities, and decide whether to remain with the pack, or return to the human world from which he was born.
What will he choose? And will he be trained in the Law of the Jungle in time to defeat Shere Khan, the most feared animal of all?
