Our daughter attended Salamander Musical Performance Camp last summer. She enjoyed it so much, she was waking early on her own and was rushing me out the door, because she didn’t want to miss a minute. She was also disappointed to see me at the end of the day, since she didn’t want to leave! We felt so proud seeing the final performance, watching her transformation from a girl who had a hard time with public speaking to a singing and dancing performer. Her first words the day after the final performance were “Can I go back to theater camp next summer?” She still talks about exploring the beautiful grounds at the Billings Estate and rehearsing under the shade of the massive trees. These are memories she will have forever.
Let us do the teaching as we guide students through on of our specifially designed drama workshops!

I have to tell you she told me that this musical drama/theatre camp is her absolute best camp EVER! She is so excited to continue on and do more musical drama in the Fall! You have done a wonderful job of communicating the necessary information in a timely manner. This is not always the case with camps and I have to say, you have been the best that I have come across!K. Richardson, Summer 2015
Our classes participated in the Kids are Dramatic program and we spent 2 full hours learning about actors and practicing being actors. My students, aged 5-7, were fully engaged and enjoyed all aspects of the experience. I could see them becoming more confident in themselves, taking chances and learning from our teachers and each other. This type of experience is so valuable to show each student that they are capable of so much and that with practice and training, they are able to learn new skills and apply them right away.
I love that my students were able to learn from artists in Ottawa and I hope to be able to participate in more programs through the Salamander Theater Company.Featherston Drive Public School 2015
We were looking at the Salamander website last night and noticed that there will be a musical theater camp this summer, yeah!! She is super excited – it is the only camp she really wants to do.Parent, January 2016
A World of Stories is a wonderful complex performance – teaching on several levels at the same time. It’s also one of the few pieces that allow my children to seem themselves in the story. Thank you!Principal, Century Public School 2016
I wanted to let you know how happy I was with the workshop my kids did this morning! All 20 of them were fully engaged for the full 2 hours and loved participating with great enthusiasm in all of the activities.Teacher 2015
We are having an absolute blast working with Salamander. It has certainly turned up the energy and put a skip in our step – so to speak! 🙂Teacher, Notre Dame High School 2016
To see my daughter blossom throughout the two weeks at Performance Camp was wonderful. Our shy girl was now singing loud and proud! She has made friendships that are still ongoing and is looking forward to seeing them again this summer. Finding others that share the same interests and aren’t shy to express themselves has helped her expand her own interests in the theater world. She has become more open to different types of music and films as well.R Donnelly, Summer 2015
I have attached a registration form for Shakespeare Camp this summer. She is looking forward to this already!J Jenkins, January 2016
