kids campsDesigned for kids ages 8 and up, the camps focus on performance, with training in acting, singing and dancing.  Kids also have a chance to build and design set pieces and costumes. Days are fun and varied, with opportunities for campers to both work in an ensemble and shine on their own.

The Merc Drama Camps this year will be led by Megan Fox Hicks.  Megan appeared as Lucy in The Merc’s 2011 production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.  Megan has been involved with dance and theater since she was three years old.  She has a degree in Theater Education and currently teaches drama at Kalles Junior High School in Puyallup.
