Lookingglass camps explore the same artistic process seen on our mainstage! Jump in to the world of theatre with professional artists dedicated to inspiring curiosity and collaboration in an ensemble setting. Students of all skill levels create and adapt stories while developing the actor's tools (body, mind, and voice), leaving them changed, charged, and empowered.
WONDERGGLASS (Grades K-3)
Explore the world around you in our Wondergglass Camp (formerly Arts Quest)! Campers delve into the theatre arts through daily classes in storytelling, music, and art, with introductions to our signature physical theatre style. We explore Chicago's most exciting cultural destinations during our field trips, and we host a special guest artist each session. When we're not out and about in the city, we use dedicated rehearsal time to create an original piece of theatre, which we perform live on stage at the end of the session. This camp is perfect for the artistic adventure seeker in your life!

Session II (July 27 - August 7) Secret Worlds
Session III (August 10 - August 21) Story Seekers
Camp takes place downtown daily. Tuition: $685 per session. Payment plans and financial aid available.
SUMMERGGLASS (Grades 4-8)
We keep our Summerglass campers moving as they take daily classes in physical theatre and acting! Mornings are dedicated to learning how to effectively tell stories through the art of physical theatre. Depending on the instructor, physical theatre skills may include tumbling, juggling, shadow puppetry, clowning, circus skills, and more! During afternoon classes, campers learn to use their actors' tools - body, mind and voice- as they create an original adaptation of a Lookingglass play. At the end of each session, campers share their unique performance with friends and family live on our main stage.
