SUMMER ARTS PROGRAMS

"My experience with Tomato Patch was a huge part of my decision to the performing arts as part of my career. After college, I danced in New York for a while before returning to work at my alma mater. I still dance, I still sing, and I don't think I'd be where I am today without the summers I spent at camp."

New Program Structure for Summer 2021

Now and always, Tomato Patch's number one priority is our students' and staff members' safety. In light of current circumstances regarding Covid-19, we are pleased to offer a newly-reconfigured program for students for Summer 2021: 

Classes run Monday through Friday, 8:45am - 4:15pm, with Fridays being Fun Days!

The grades listed below are for what grade the student will be entering into in the 2021-2022 academic year.

 

  • Session I – Grades 8-12: July 5-July 22

  • Session II – Grades 4-7: July 26-August 12

  • Master Class in Acting Session I – Grades 8-12: July 5-July 23

  • Master Class in Acting Session 2 – Grades 8-12: July 26-August 13

 

Students will select from one of the following majors/instructors, and will remain with them (and their counselor) for the entire day. This "bubble" method will help to ensure limited exposure for the safety of our students and staff. For this reason, once the student begins the program, there will NOT be an option to switch their schedule. If availability exists, students may switch their registration prior to the beginning of the program.

In the event of inclement weather, we will relocate programs into designated indoor spaces and follow all recommended health and safety procedures as issued by Mercer County Community College.
