Education at McCarter


Summer Camp 2023

This summer, McCarter will offer students from ages 5 to 15, the chance to fully immerse themselves in a creative process.

As with McCarter’s education programs, our Summer Camps are taught by highly experienced creative arts professionals, including actors, theatre directors, choreographers, musical directors, designers, and visual artists


In-Person Classes

McCarter offers an array of in-person classes for PreK-12th grade students and adults. Each class fosters a supportive and creative environment where every student is free to explore, play, and develop their unique artistic voice.

Whether you have years of experience or you're trying theater for the first time, McCarter's classes offer a meaningful and joyful learning experience for students of all ages.



Student Matinees

Stay tuned for information about our student matinees this season.

McCarter offers student matinees for most of our mainstage theatre series. Productions are generally appropriate for grades 9th-12th, but we occasionally extend the opportunity to our middle school audience based on the show's content. A complimentary digital resource guide with companion activities is included for each school with the price of admission. Click here to register.
