  • This event has passed.

Ages 11 – 19! Wednesday Feb. 7, Saturday Feb. 10!

Be in the WORLD PREMIERE of a new work!

Learn about the rewards and challenges of creating a character from the ground up, and working with a developing script. This will be an intensive rehearsal process, and unlike any camp or production ACANY has done before.

Brief Plot Summary: An original musical about our hidden abilities and the fears that come with being “different”, PSYKIDZ follows three youngsters from various backgrounds who are chosen by world renowned psychic-medium Skylar Quinn to get specialized on-site training at a newly discovered site that has sent scientists and archeologists running in fear. As the psychic kids develop their skills and subsequently heal the conflicted relationships with their families, they each become more confident and accepting of their special abilities, ultimately becoming more confident with who they are.

Staged Performance: The camp will culminate in the WORLD PREMIERE of PSYKIDZ for an audience filled with family, friends, and industry guests including producers, casting directors and scouting agents!

Audition in person or via video!
