Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can I register for camps?

A: Registration is done online via our Parent Portal. You can also call us at (336) 370-6337 or email us at

Q: What should my child bring to camp?

A: All students will need to pack a lunch, a water bottle, and a pencil. We highly encourage students to wear jazz shoes, although it’s not a requirement. They will not be allowed to wear street shoes on our dance floor, so socks or barefeet are an alternative. We provide a morning snack for students, although they are welcome to bring their own as well. Please have your students wear clothes they can easily move in throughout the day, with long hair pulled back.

Q: What will a typical camp day look like?

A: We usually start our morning with a warmup, such as acting games, body warmups, or vocal exercises. We then work on songs or scenes throughout the day, with breaks for snack and lunch. Your child may not be in absolutely every scene or song, but watching other students work is another great learning tool in theater!

Q: My child is not able to attend all of the camp week. Can we still participate?

A: Yes, if a student needs to miss a day of camp due to travel or another obligation, we will work around this commitment. Please let us know as early as possible so we can plan accordingly.

Q: Do you offer early drop off and late pickup?

A: Early drop off starts at 7:30am (regular drop off starts at 8:30am). For Mainstage, The Jungle Book, Mary Poppins Returns, and Alice and the Beanstalk or Jack in Wonderland, late pickup goes until 5:30pm. For our other week long camps, we are only able to offer late pickup if enough students request it, as this requires a staff member to be on site for an additional three hours. Please contact us if you will need these services.

Q: Do you offer any discounts or scholarships?

A: Yes! If your family is in need of a scholarship, please reach out to us so we can help your child attend camp. We never want money to be a hindrance to students who are interested in the performing arts! We also offer the following summer discounts:

  • ·         Register for one camp week, receive 10% off a second camp week
  • ·         Register for two camp weeks, receive 15% off a third camp week
  • ·         Register for Mainstage, receive 20% off all other camps
  • ·         Sibling discount – 10% off with one full paying student

Q: How do you decide what role my child will have in the show?

A: At Stagelights, we do not do formal theater auditions—rather, we assess the students when we first meet them to see what roles will help push them to be better performers! These assessments involve character movement and improvisation, learning a song and/or dance, and reading different parts from our script. We never force a student to sing a solo or speak a line if they are uncomfortable with doing so, but we encourage all students to participate!

Q: My child brought home her script, and she only has one line in the show. Is this all she will do the whole time?

A: No! At Stagelights, we are an ensemble based program, meaning we do not focus on just the “leads” or “main roles”. Our goal is to teach actors how to work as a team to put on a full production—often students will have multiple roles in a show, be involved in many songs, and may even act as an extra character in certain scenes. We promise your students will be amazed how much of the show they are in, no matter what role they are!

Q: Where will camp and the performances be held?

A: Unless otherwise noted, we usually do our final performances at the Congregational United Church of Christ. However, the other camp days are held at our Stagelights studio at 2307 W Cone Blvd, Suite 110, Greensboro NC 27408.
