Trike Theatre doesn’t just take its shows on the road. We offer classes around Northwest Arkansas, partnering with other local arts groups. So, maybe it’s more convenient for you to send your young artist to one of these other locations. Just like back at Trike HQ, these partner classes fill up fast. Register early.
Theatre scholarships ensure everyone’s welcome!
Academy Camp faq:
Why are there auditions for the Summer Musical Camp?
Though we do require an audition for the summer musical, each student will receive a role in the show announced within the first few days of camp. We believe a key part to a professional theatre experience is the ability to practice an audition. Our team will enroll your child in the summer musical camp after auditions and contact you with next steps.
Do you host camps outside of Bentonville?
Yes, though they do vary by semester. You can check out our most frequent venue partners on our Community Partners page.
What is the difference between process sharing and performance sharing?
Performance sharings most closely resemble a recital. You sit in the audience and watch your student perform the piece they have been working on during the week(s). A process sharing is the conclusion for camps for 4-7 year olds. It is part performance part show-and-tell. Our staff will begin by sharing with you what types of skills your student has been working on and demonstrate key points that can be continued at home.
Can I enroll in a camp on the day it starts?
As a general policy, we are not able to allow same day enrollment. As we continue to expand our programming, we require more time to prepare before each semester. To reflect this, our enrollment is scheduled to close TWO DAYS before a class is scheduled to begin. The exception to this are our Tuesday classes which are scheduled to close the SATURDAY before a class begins.
How many days of camp can we miss?
We understand that sickness, appointments and emergencies happen. But attendance matters because it allows your young artist to fully experience the class and teaches them accountability and their value to the team! Many of our classes involve group/team work, so others will depend on them to attend for overall success. Please notify Trike with any expected days you might miss, so that we can plan accordingly. Students should try not to miss more than one day.
What is the earliest age children can enroll?
Our smallest artists should be at least four years old at the time class begins. What really matters is, are they currently in Pre-K4? If not, are they familiar with a classroom environment and can they use the bathroom without assistance?
Are camps drop-off and pick-up only?
Yes! Please allow your young artist to be fully immersed in the experience without distraction, by dropping them off and picking them up each day of camp. Our team works hard to make sure our young artists are in a safe, fun and comfortable environment each day. However, if you’d like to stay and observe, we’re happy to accommodate. Please let our teaching artists know ahead of time.
Do you offer adult acting classes?
At this time, we are not offering adult acting classes.
How do I apply for an Academy Scholarship?
See our Scholarship application form. We award 20%, 50%, and 80% scholarships each semester based on need.
How do I choose the correct summer camp grade?
Enrollment for summer camps should be for the grade your young artist will be in for the upcoming Fall. For homeschoolers, please use the age range listed next to each camp for extra guidance.
Are meals provided at Trike Camps?
Lunches are not provided by Trike Theatre.
- For Full-Day camps, your young artist should bring a NUT-FREE lunch, two NUT-FREE snacks, and a REFILLABLE WATER BOTTLE.
- For Half-Day camps, your young artist should bring one NUT-FREE SNACK and a REFILLABLE WATER BOTTLE.
