Second Summer Youth Theatre Institute Added Due To Popular Demand – Registration Now Open

By popular demand, the Branson Regional Arts Council is adding a SECOND Summer Youth Theatre Institute and is now accepting student registrations for it’s June 24 – July 14 classes and production of Disney’s Peter Pan Jr

When we announced our regular Summer Institute registration, we had no idea that we would completely fill our young cast show in LESS THAN A DAY! In order to give more youth in our area the opportunity to experience this exciting summer theatre camp, we are announcing this SECOND SUMMER INSTITUTE with an equally exciting production!

Register your child (ages 6-13) to experience the Branson Regional Arts Council’s exciting summer theatre camp at the Historic Owen Theatre in Branson. The theme is Fun Education Continues and we are an entirely separate Summer Institute production limited to 35 students.

No auditions or previous experience required to participate!

Tuition is $225 per student for all 3 Weeks of Fun!

Tuition includes all classes, performances, personal script and logo t-shirt. 


NOTE: Students Should Be Age 6-13 on June 24, 2024

Students (age 6-13) will attend classes on Monday thru Friday, 8:00am – 12:00pm from June 24th thru July 11th, culminating with (4) public performances of Peter Pan JR on Friday, July 12 (7pm), Saturday, July 13 (2pm & 7pm), and Sunday, July 14 (2pm).

The students will learn acting, dancing, singing, and stage movement culminating in a magnificent stage production of Disney’s Peter Pan Jr. with public performances July 12-14, 2024. Reserved seat tickets for Peter Pan JR are on sale now at BransonArts.org/tix. (These tickets were not included in Season Passes, please purchase separately!)

Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, the fierce Brave Girls, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook.

Featuring the iconic songs, “I’m Flying,” “I’ve Gotta Crow,” “I Won’t Grow Up” and “Never Never Land,” and a rousing book full of magic, warmth and adventure, Peter Pan JR. is the perfect show for the child in all of us… who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up.
