Summer Camps at Playhouse Square

Summer is right around the corner, but how do your kids plan to spend it? Sure, sleeping in, watching Netflix, and hanging out with friends are fun ways to fill summer days. However, why not encourage your child get more from summer while still having fun! 

This summer, we at Playhouse Square and our resident companies are offering opportunities aimed at expanding knowledge of the arts through high impact experiences. Check out some of these great opportunities below.
