International Musical Theater Camp - Beat Bugs!

CYT International Musical Theater Camp is a unique, multicultural, summer experience, unlike any other musical theater camp in the world! Students from Shanghai, China will travel to southern California to join with American campers for this commingled camp, open to kids ages 10-15. Campers rotate through theater workshops including dance, drama, and voice, play exciting theater games, audition and rehearse for a professional musical, and make life long friends from across the globe! 

Beat Bugs, a new musical adaptation based on the NETFLIX animated series, inspired by music made famous by The Beatles, centers around five pals who explore the world and learn life lessons. Follow Walter, Buzz, Jay, Crick, and Kumi as they go on a mission to save Strawberry Fields!

Camp Showcase

At the end of camp, students perform in a showcase they have rehearsed over the course of their fun-filled week. Parents get to come watch their kids perform the material they have learned free of charge! The Camp Showcase is a celebration of the week’s work and gives kids a glimpse into the energy and excitement of being part of a full CYT production.
