Our Session 1 End-of-Camp Extravaganza is coming up this Sunday, July 24th at 11:00 AM! Our campers will be showcasing the brilliant songs they have composed with their bands at Thalia Hall (1807 S. Allport in Pilsen); you definitely don’t want to miss this.

Campers should arrive at the venue at 9:30 AM to get ready for the show. Campers should be dropped off at the entrance on Allport where a volunteer in a red shirt will escort them upstairs. Parents are welcome to have brunch at Dusek’s, Thalia Hall’s sister restaurant, until the show starts at 11:00 AM.

DJs start their sets when the doors open at 11:00 AM, and the bands start at 11:30 AM. Tickets are $10 at the door or in advance (purchase here), and kids under eight get in for free. See you there!
