BAYFEST youth theatre summer acting drama campSince 1990, the BAYFEST International Summer Program has provided professional-level theatre training and cultural enrichment to groups of talented young performers, aged 14 – 21, from all over the United States, Great Britain, Canada, and elsewhere.

The Summer Acting Camp Intensive has been held in locations as varied as New York, London, Washington, DC, Vermont, San Diego, Seattle, Newcastle on Tyne, North Wales, Los Angeles, and Sandpoint, Idaho.

Participants have come from the widest possible range of social and cultural backgrounds; many with scholarship assistance.

They have lived in each others’ homes; they have worked long hours rehearsing and performing productions from Shakespeare to musicals; they have laughed and cried with each other and the BAYFEST staff and teachers…

…and in many cases, they say their lives have been changed.
