An unsuspecting class of middle school students and their overly enthusiastic teacher are transported back in time where they come face to face with some of the greatest mysteries known to humans. Set against the backdrop of Ancient Egypt, the students learn about Ancient cultures and are reminded of the importance of working as a team.

Designed for students at all levels of theatre experience, campers will audition, rehearse, and perform a musical alongside three professional teaching artists…in one week! The Vanishing of the Jolly Roger is a brand-new production with a script by Katie Colletta and original music by Jason Sifford.

A public performance is held on Friday evening at 6:30 pm. A camp t-shirt and tickets to the final performance are included in your registration. Campers will need to bring a sack lunch and a water bottle each day.

Scholarships are available for every student in need through the Charlie Bates Memorial Scholarship. To request a scholarship, visit or call 319.248.9312.
