MIRAMAR BEACH — Whether your thespian craves the glow of a center stage spotlight or prefers to make the magic happen backstage behind-the-scenes, Emerald Coast Theatre Company’s 2020 Summer Camp series has something to offer you.
Following CDC guidelines, this selection of “socially distanced” Summer 2020 classes are offered online. These sessions begin June 2 and run through June 18. The classes, workshops and lessons are designed for various age groups that range from preschool aged children through 12th grade high schoolers.
Tuition ranges from $95 to $295 per student depending on the program. Sibling, military and multiple camp discounts are provided; payment plans and scholarships available for group camps/classes.
In accordance with CDC safety protocols and state guidelines, ECTC’s doors remain closed, but once it is safe to do so, ECTC will re-open and hold on-site performing arts programs across Northwest Florida. To review and pre-register for the full roster of Summer Camp 2020 program offerings, visit
“This will be our eighth year of offering summer camps to the children of the Emerald Coast,” said Nathanael Fisher, producing artistic director of ECTC. “The pandemic has not stopped us, it has just inspired us to be that much more innovative. Since we founded, 2,212 local children have participated in our educational programs, and 18,500 students and families have experience ECTC's Theatre for Young Audiences productions. It is near and dear to our mission to provide these opportunities to our community and we’re so excited to be able to offer some new creative programs in this year’s line-up.”
