Rock City Camp with School of Rock Chicago

for ages 14-19


The Second City Training Center and School of Rock Chicago team up to introduce Rock City Camp: An Opera of Rock, a stage-writing performance camp for teens aged 14-19, beginning July 7. Over two weeks, musical all-stars with multiple performance skills in music and theater, will create an original story line, learn rock music and develop original music to produce a never-before-seen show. 

At the conclusion of the two-week Rock City Camp, students will perform rock classics and original songs in a two-night performance at Chicago's Athenaeum Theatre. Enrollment is open to drummers, guitarists, keyboardists, improvisers, actors, writers, vocalists and more who are ready to take their skills to the stage.

Rock City Camp will take place July 7-18 (second performance Saturday, July 19) at Athenaeum Theatre, 2936 N. Southport Ave. Sessions are Monday through Friday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. 

Tuition: $1200. Needs-based scholarships are available.
