CCT Academy

Students of all ages can join in on our fun and inviting classes!


CCT OneStage!

In order to ensure the safety of students and their families, we have developed a new and engaging virtual program — CCT OneStage! Each camp is uniquely designed to engage and challenge the young performer in your family. These 4-day camps have three levels:

Level 1 — Ages 3-5 (Discovery)

Level 2 — Ages 6-8 (Beginner – no previous experience required)

Level 3 — Ages 9-12 (Beginner to Intermediate)


Level 1: $40

Level 2: $70

Level 3: $95

The best news is that CCT OneStage camps come at a much lower price point, allowing you to register for multiple camps. The camps run Mon-Thur from July 6-August 6. These camps include options like FROZEN FUN, DISNEY, HOGWARTS, and HAMILTON! You can view the camp options by clicking the link below.

Special Update Regarding COVID-19

Please note the status update for the following productions and programs as of June 25, 2020:

Dear CCT Summer Camp Families:

Thank you for your patience with us as we worked through our 2020 CCT Summer Camp strategy.

As you might imagine, the CCT Board of Trustees and staff had – and continue to have – difficult decisions to make during this unprecedented time. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected our organization in ways we did not anticipate – operationally, logistically, financially, and emotionally.

Theatre companies around the globe have shuttered their doors; some until as late as March 2021. Even Broadway, the pinnacle of live theatre in America, has postponed all productions until 2021.

Given current circumstances, we have concluded that we cannot guarantee the safety of children and their families. As such, we are cancelling all “IN-PERSON/Face to Face” CCT Summer Camps scheduled between July 6 and August 6, 2020. However, we have converted several of these summer camps to a digital platform in an effort to still offer them virtually. Of course, each virtual camp will have a significantly reduced fee, which will allow for parents to…

  1. Donate the remainder of your registration fees back to CCT for a Tax Deductible Donation.
  2. Apply the full amount of previously paid registrations fees to MORE than one of the new virtual camps (up to the amount previously paid).
  3. Convert their registrations fees into one of our 2021 CCT Family Value Packages (details below).
  4. Request a refund for overpayment (less the virtual camp fee) OR a full refund.

This decision was not taken lightly as there are significant financial ramifications for our organization that come with this choice. Of course, the safety of your children and families outweighs any financial damages we suffer. Our promise to this community has always been, “To Provide a Safe Space for Children to Explore, Learn, and Thrive.” SAFE is the operative word here.

We deeply regret the impact this decision might have on your summer plans.

We respectfully ask you that you accept the following 2021 CCT Value Pack in lieu of a refund:

  1. Family 4-Pack of Premium Ticket Vouchers (Orchestra Level) for our April 2021 production of the beloved classic, THE WIZARD OF OZ at the Lincoln Theatre. (This title has NOT been announced yet. Please keep CONFIDENTIAL).
  2. Guaranteed backstage passes for your entire family (upon your request) for THE WIZARD OF OZ.
  3. $50.00 Discount Voucher for 2021 Academy classes or Summer Camps.

It is a little known fact that small arts organizations like CCT rely heavily on contributed income – donations from people like you and me. If you would like to donate the full amount of your registration fees, we will issue you an official Tax Credit Letter to use as a 2020 income tax deduction. Letters will be sent following the end of our 2020 Summer Camp season.

In the event that you do not wish to participate in our Virtual Summer Camp offerings, please consider our request to convert your 2020 Summer Camp registration fees to donations or the 2021 CCT Value Pack to help protect YOUR Columbus Children’s Theatre. Working together will be the very best way to ensure CCT is stable and secure once it is safe to reopen.

If you have not already done so, please contact John Faas at john@columbuschildrenstheatre.org to secure your Value Pack or with any questions, comments or concerns. Email is the preferred method of communication due to our remaining staff working from home. Please DO NOT call the office general line as we are all still working remotely.
