Hi-Liners Musical Theatre in Burien, WA: Putting People Downstage Center Since 1966! Our productions, classes, workshops and camps are open to students ages 3 to 22. We are a non-profit youth theatre dedicated to providing professional direction to our young cast members to develop their talents with the backdrop of quality sets, costumes and a live orchestra, to give both the performers and the audience a genuine Broadway musical experience.

2019 Summer Camps

Theatre Arts

Students are exposed to a variety of theatre skills meant to spark the imagination, encourage self confidence, and inspire team playing. In Theatre Arts Camps, we focus on the visual art component, creating plenty of room for self expression related to a weekly theme. This is a perfect process oriented experience for creative kids!

Musical Theatre Introductions

A chance for our youngest students to develop their singing and dancing skills. Each camp is focused on a theme, which is used to inspire the music selection and creation of a simple script. Craft time, play time, and theme-centric games are all part of the fun, leading up to a PERFORMANCE on the final day.

Musical Theatre Intensives

These camps are for Musical Theatre lovers! Our Intensives offer mentorship by master teacher Tony Curry. If you are a triple threat, or want to be one, you will love spending your time singing, dancing and acting your way through a week of rigorous rehearsal with your director, musical director and choreographer. Invite your manager (or Mom and Dad) to the final class to see you "putting it together" in an off-Broadway PREMIERE created just for you!
