Summer Theater Camp in Long Island

On Tuesday, May 26, Usdan shared our very difficult decision to cancel in-person camp this summer. We made this decision because we knew we couldn’t provide the Usdan summer our students know and love. For the full announcement, please visit our Covid-19 updates page.

Summer Acting Programs for Kids in New York

The dynamic hub of the Usdan theater program is the extraordinary Lemberg Drama Center, which includes an air-conditioned indoor theater, two outdoor theaters, and rehearsal studios, as well as costume, prop, and set shops. With offerings in both drama and musical theater, our students have several opportunities to experience the full of cycle of staging and performing a play or musical throughout the summer.  Recent productions include Into the Woods, Frog and Toad, Finian’s Rainbow, and Oliver!

High-school aged students may audition for The Usdan Troupe which presents one fully staged musical production every year.  Former company members describe it as "summer stock theater for teens."
