Camps & Classes

DiscoveryOnstage provides year-round classes for young people of all ages and experience levels to explore various disciplines within the arts. Unlike the programs and curriculum the company offers in residence, DiscoveryOnstage hones in on specialized, specific areas of performance and artistic expression, all promoting and celebrating originality and entertaining the unimaginable.

DiscoveryOnstage currently offers three unique programs: The annual Summer Acting Camp, the Pilot Project, and the Young Actors’ Exploration Series.

Summer Acting Camp

With ten summers’ worth of experience, DiscoveryOnstage offers a summer program tailored for the young actor, exploring different facets of creative expression—acting, stage combat, dance, movement and diction, songwriting, visual art, and filmmaking. True to the company’s credo of creating From the Imagination Up®, the camp allows for a full immersive experience in the creative process, creating and performing original one-act musicals.

June 18 – July 13, 2019  |  Monday – Friday 8am – 3pm


PROVIDENCE HIGH ARTS and DISCOVERYONSTAGE are proud to introduce NextStage, an advanced-level Summer Acting Camp experience. Designed for transitioning or currently enrolled high school students, ages 14 – 17, this elevated program combines immersive performance based workshops with academic, service, and mentorship opportunities seeking to develop the complete artist while preparing the individual for life’s next steps.

Like all DiscoveryOnstage programs, students will participate in every phase of the creative process. With the larger Summer Acting Camp’s resources at their disposal, students can incorporate original music, fight and dance choreography, and visual art and multi-media elements in an effort to serve story. Guided by a lead instructor and dedicated playwright, NextStage student collaborators will craft an original, longer-form, more sophisticated production presented as a lead-in to the upcoming Providence High Arts season of events.

Young Actor’s Lab
with Jeremy Kent Jackson

DiscoveryOnstage, in residency at Providence High Arts, presents the Young Actor’s Lab! Join us for this exciting and inspiring thirteen week journey that engages the mind, body, and soul in the process of creating character From the Imagination Up. Led by master instructor Jeremy Kent Jackson, star of Disney XD’s Lab Rats, students will explore the fundamentals of acting and improvisation, then conceive, develop, and perform in their own original scenes.

Acting for the Camera
Scene Study/Audition Technique
Youth & Adult Classes for Serious Actors

Through the Lens Acting for the Camera Classes provide weekly opportunity for serious actors, YOUTH and ADULT, to cultivate the physical, vocal, and emotional skills necessary for success in the film and television industry. Within each class, students will explore technique, analyze script, perfect rehearsal process and prepare to shoot. Every 8 to 12 weeks, students will perform scenes on-camera to be edited by the Through the Lens post-production team and then presented in class for feedback the following week. Along the way, students will develop a unique and effective approach to the work that serves them both inside the audition room and on-set.
