Summer Camps will Take the Stage at Theatre in the Square

Last fall, Theatre in the Square hired local educator and director, Susan Reid, to take on the role of Education Director. The winter acting classes for youth, teens and adults have been a huge success. Summer Camps will begin for grades 1-12 beginning in June. Each class will end in a performance on the Alley Stage. Prices for classes vary, for more information or to register, call Susan Reid at 770-422-8369 or email

As the new Education Director and Artistic Associate, Marietta resident, Susan Reid is already hard at work booking classes at the theatre. Susan has been a part of the Theatre in the Square family for many years as she has worked as a teaching artist and directed shows such as Rabbit Hole, crooked and A Piece of My Heart in the past. Susan most recently worked as the Education Director at Aurora Theatre in Lawrenceville. “Susan brings the high caliber of experience and professionalism our patrons and students have come to expect. We have enjoyed her work as a guest artist and educator and now are thrilled that she has become a part of our team fulltime. We look forward to the innovative artistry that she will bring to T-Square's education programming as well as in her position as an artistic associate”, says Assistant Artistic Director, Jessica Phelps West.

Camp for grades 1-5 will take place July 5 – 15 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. In the Production Explosion, Jr. Camp, our youngest students will put on a production of a classic story. Each day, students will gain valuable experience as they spend time rehearsing, crafting costumes, and helping with set pieces. The 1-2 graders will perform The Little Red Hen and the 3-5 graders will perform James and the Giant Peach.

Camps for grades 6-8 will take place June 20 – July 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. In our T-Square Middle School Company Camp, we introduce a wide variety of training techniques including acting, singing, dancing and improvisation.

Camps for high school students will take place July 18 – 29 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. T-Square High School Company Camp includes two-weeks of intense training that combines improvisation, dancing, singing and acting on stage.

All classes will take place at Theatre in the Square. Friends and family are invited to see a final performance that’s a little bit GLEE and a whole lot of FUN. There is a $25 one-time new student application fee. Families registering more than one individual at a time will have one ($25) application fee waived. A $100 non-refundable deposit is required for registration.
