JOIN US FOR A SUMMER OF MUSIC THEATRE FUN!

Windy City Performs Conservatory Summer Camps are among the best in Chicagoland.  Our camps teach all the basics in music theatre performance while preparing students for a final performance - lightly- or fully-produced, based on age group.  We integrate games, social events, team-building activities and outdoor time at Jefferson Park to make sure our students have a well-rounded summer camp experience.  Camps are non-auditioned, and no experience is necessary.  We offer 3- and 5-installment payment plans, and generous financial aid for families who need assistance.  

What are you waiting for? Find out why we were voted Best Theatre by the readers of Chicago Magazine in 2016!

Also, don't forget, we have Teen and Youth openings in our professional, Mainstage production of BILLY ELLIOT. For more information, click here.

$20, $30, $40 or $50 discount for paying in-full at time of enrollment.  Tuition prices go up 5% after January 1; and another 5% after March 1.

ABOUT 'GUYS & DOLLS (Jr)'

Guys and Dolls JR. is an adaptation of the show considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy. Its namesake ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950 and won numerous Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Frank Loesser's brassy, immortal score and witty book makes Guys and Dolls JR. a perennial crowd pleaser.

Set in Damon Runyon's New York City, Guys and Dolls JR. follows gambler, Nathan Detroit, as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls JR. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.
