PushPush Offers Summer Theater and Film Camps for Children and Teens
The specific philosophy behind PushPush Theater’s youth program, Small Tall, unique to the Atlanta theater community, is that the more young audiences are exposed to challenging work, the easier it will be to present them with high-quality work when they are older. Finding metaphors and motifs in classic drama that reflect young people’s life experience can help youth understand difficult themes in challenging works of art and ensure that masterpieces are kept alive and fresh for new audiences. The PushPush Theater mission is to develop young audiences to grow up to be valuable cultural patrons of, and participants, in the arts.
PushPush Theater and Film Camp
PushPush Theater is offering two camps including a theater, film, and improv component. Both camps allow students to try their hand at work behind and in front of the lights. The process will be centered on a specific text and the story will unfold utilizing all three components. The camp will culminate in a professional public performance at noon on the final Friday of each camp. Our goals with each of these programs are to enhance participants’ imagination, communication, confidence, and thinking skills while sensitizing them to team work. Teens and youth will work separately but come together to create the final performance. The camps are challenging and require focus, but they are also fun and tremendously rewarding. All camps are taught by leading professional artists in their related fields.

Times: Monday – Friday from 10am – 3pm
Ages: 8 – 12 and Teens 13+
