Summer Camps

2020 VIRTUAL SUMMER THEATER CAMPS

Due to COVID-19 and the restrictions set, summer programming is tentative and we will contact registrants with any programming changes. 

We are excited to have Christina Docter, Artistic Director, as our Lead Summer Director. During this time of uncertainty, we have decided to switch our programming to online virtual classes.  We will be starting with 2- 45 minute online classes with 2 age groups.  Each week there will be a new class list. When you register, you will receive a Zoom meeting link a few days before the class starts.  Class size will be limited so that we can keep the integrity of our instruction.  If a class fills up, please email us at info@yaal.org and if there is enough interest we can open up another time slot.  All parents and students will be required to read and agree to our “YAAL VIRTUAL LEARNING AGREEMENT” located on here on our policies page.

Our NEXT Virtual Play!

$75/week

Ages 8 & up

11:00am- 12:30 am

12 students max per class

The Psychic Promoter promises that Virtual Fortunes has the answers to all your questions, and testimonials from several past customers (who all look surprising similar!)  reinforce the site as the one-stop, location for all your online psychic, palm reading, and fortune telling needs!

A steady stream of customers has the psychic offering visions of the future for just a buck apiece.  Dawn and her boyfriend Don ask about the results of a potentially career-changing phone call she’s about to get.  Don laughs off the seer’s fuzzy prediction as a con, but Dawn takes stock as it seems to come true just moments later!  As more visitors seek answers from the vague visionary, the questions and ambiguous answers pile up nearly as fast as the laughs. 

This hysterical one-act is highly entertaining as it explores the lengths to which some people will go to hear what they want to hear.
