Education at McCarter

Two Ways to Enjoy

In-Person Classes

McCarter offers an array of in-person and online 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.

Summer Camp 2022
This summer, McCarter will offer students from ages 5 to 13, the chance to fully immerse themselves in a creative process.

As with all of McCarter’s education programs, our Summer Camps are taught by professional teaching artists who create safe learning spaces and offer opportunities for all campers to develop artistic techniques, social skills, and imaginative thinking.

McCarter Summer Camp challenges each child to find their unique voice while working collaboratively within an ensemble — all in the joyful spirit of summer!
