CKP Programming

The Tom Thumb Players (ages 3-6) 
 Mini-musicals perfect for this age group, produced throughout the calendar year. Not just rehearsing, much of each class is spent with exercises in music, movement, creativity and expressiveness. A great place to start in theater!   Learn More

The Mainstage Players (ages 6-13) 
Most of our programming is for the Mainstage Players. One- and Two- act musicals written specifically for students in this age group to perform. Every student in each cast gets a speaking part. We produce two big two-act musicals for the Mainstage Players each year, one in the fall, one in the spring. Throughout the year we also offer one-act musicals, classes, and camps, with our signature show-in-a-week immersion camps in the summertime.

The Excalibur Players (6th-11th grade) 
Our most advanced troupe of performers, Excalibur Players work with more difficult material, and have much more expected of them. Usually Excalibur Players perform a big musical each spring with a Broadway script, and a straight play every summer. Excalibur Players are the core of the Camelot Players productions as well.
