Whether you want it to be or not, Summer is right around the corner! It’s time to start planning ahead for your kiddos and what they will be doing to keep themselves busy this Summer. We have so many awesome activities lined up in this guide, make sure to share it with your friends so you can sign up your kiddos for fun activities together! A special thanks to Robolink, Inc., Diversionary Theatre, iD Tech and our other sponsors to making this guide a fun-filled resource for our families!

Diversionary Theatre is proud to present Teen-Versionary, our first teen acting summer camp exploring the LGBT experience.
Teen-Versionary is unique, producing a new play comprised of LGBT teens and their allies, creating a safe space to creatively explore the story and characters. Through a two week intensive rehearsal process, the teen ensemble will get a taste of a professional theatre process in a fast paced environment where a new play is fully produced on our mainstage in two weeks.
This summer’s show: queerSpawn tells the story of The Kid, a fourteen-year-old starting high school in a small town. Everyone knows he has two moms, and that’s just the beginning of his trouble. While dodging bullies, The Kid conjures imaginary allies in this provocative, hilarious and poignant new play takes an unflinching look at what it means to be a teen today, and the persisting stigma around the LGBT identity.
Folks aged 13 to recent high school graduates are welcome to apply for a position in Teen-Versionary. Anyone who wants to feel part of something special to apply is encouraged to apply. Because of the advance timeline, some theatrical experience is also encouraged, but not prerequisite.
Tuition: $400 for two weeks. Some Full and Partial Scholarships are available.
