Messiah College Theatre Arts Academy

The Messiah College Theatre Arts Academy (MCTAA) specializes in professional training for emerging theatre artists entering grades 3-12. Students will have a great time experiencing theatre first hand through interactive games, creative improvisation, age-appropriate scene work, and even through doing a short show for family and friends at the end of the camp week! Seasoned theatre professionals and undergraduate theatre majors mentor students as they discover and hone their creative potential.


Students learn from experienced and credentialed artist/educators who are assisted by Messiah College undergraduate theatre majors in all academy activities. Talented guest artists from Central Pennsylvania round out a stellar theatre arts experience.
