Welcome to the AFTER SCHOOL and SUMMER CAMP Programs!

Registration is now open!

At McCARTER AFTER SCHOOL, we focus on each student’s personal and artistic growth. Through the art of theater, we foster the development of social skills, self-confidence, teamwork, commitment, empathy, and the courage to take risks in a safe environment.

We like to say that students at McCarter After School are not just “putting on a play,” but are truly “making theater.” In addition to teaching the basics of theater technique such as vocal projection, stage movement, knowledge of theatrical vocabulary, and character development, McCarter’s programs foster the kind of creative ownership that can only come from treating each participant as a young artist with an important and unique artistic voice.

Our students have the opportunity to work with professional performing artists, directors, and educators who encourage exploration and teach theater fundamentals to the interests and abilities of each student. Whether your student has years of experience or is investigating theater for the first time, McCarter After School will offer a meaningful and joyful learning experience.
