Education | Summer Intensives, Musical Theatre & Acting

“[My children] loved actually putting on a "show" that all fit together. Thanks again for a terrific theatre week and we look forward to seeing everyone next summer.”

Get a Summertime Glow – Under the Stage Lights!

This summer, let your child experience a week full of imagination, acting, singing, and dancing – all less than a block from the beach! At our theatre in downtown Rehoboth Beach, they'll learn like the pros and "Never Grow Up"!

The Musical Theatre Summer Stock Intensives (Grades 1-12) returns this summer after enthusiastic responses from students and parents alike.  Adapted from our long-running Summer Intensive program, each Summer Stock Intensive is designed to give students a taste of life in a professional theatre. Mimicking the rehearsal and production process of Clear Space’s own summer repertory season, students will create and perform a condensed version of a popular Broadway musical in one week. In this performance-based experience, our faculty of industry professionals guides students through instruction in acting, dance and vocal technique, as well as group rehearsals. This experience full of challenging but attainable performing arts activities culminates in two performances on the final day at 11am and Noon. There are 4 Intensives designed for different grade levels to choose from!

The Acting Summer Intensive (Grades 1-12) is designed to give students a more direct focus on acting technique and dramatic study. In this week-long program, students will be led through instruction in body awareness and physicality, voice, basic acting technique and working as an ensemble. The week’s studies are all focused on the creation and performance of a children’s theatre piece to be presented at two performances on the final day at 11am and Noon.

The Intensives are held at our theatre in vibrant, downtown Rehoboth Beach, DE, one block from the beach! Easily accessed by car, bus, trolley, or on foot, the theatre offers a secure, air-conditioned learning environment and our convenient location allows the unique opportunity to combine a summer study of the arts with a family vacation!

The Musical Theatre Summer Intensive was begun in 1993 to serve students of Howard County, Maryland. Since then, more than 2,000 students have participated in the Intensive which remains active in several Maryland locations and in Sussex County, Delaware. 

“...the Summer Stock Intensive was [my child’s] first exposure to theatre and she had a fabulous experience. Your staff presented such a professional theatrical experience while also creating a fun filled summer atmosphere. Thanks again...for providing such a positive introduction to theatre and the performing arts.”

SIGN UP NOW! Only 40 students will be accepted for each session. The Summer Intensives have traditionally run at capacity, so early registration is encouraged.
