Take It From The Top 

After our fantastic summer with nearly 200 participants, we are planning for another creative and exciting summer in 2024. In the meantime, check out our Company at Wharton for the 2023-2024 school year.

Are you interested in musical theatre or on your way to becoming a triple threat? Take It From The Top summer camps offer an exciting opportunity for students of all skill levels. Taught by Broadway professionals, students will work on skills in singing, acting, and dancing. 

Through small classes that allow for individual mentoring, you will advance your skills and have one-of-a-kind experiences.

“I wanted to let you know that my son went to the Wharton Center’s Take It From The Top Camp in July and he LOVED it! I wanted to PERSONALLY thank you and especially thank those who were responsible for making this fantastic event happen. I am quite certain that this camp has CHANGED HIS LIFE. He has fallen in love with the theatre and your camp has done even more to solidify that love. Although he did a school play last year (his first ever) and very much enjoyed it … after doing the camp at the Wharton, he is now a STAGE KID! You and your staff were able to pull not only confidence but also a drive to improve.  It is very easy to support your children, but it is very hard when your kid doesn’t know what they LOVE … thanks to TIFTT, he has found a home and has found his people.”
