The in-person high school theater workshops offered by the Lovewell Institute for the Creative Arts are back this summer.

According to information from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation, each week-long musical theater workshop is open to high school students (incoming freshmen to graduating graduates).

July 5-9 – Russell (location to be determined)
July 12-16 – Phillipsburg (Huck Boyd Center)

After successful summers in 2018, 2019, the program offered online opportunities in 2020 due to COVID-19. This summer, the Dane G. Hansen Foundation is pleased to bring back Lovewell for in-person workshops.

Lovewell offers students the opportunity to explore music and theater in a unique way. The response from students and faculty over the past summers has been overwhelmingly positive.


The week-long day camp / workshop brings together students from all different creative backgrounds to create an original piece of musical theater from scratch. While performance is a huge part of the workshop, the focus is on the creative process. To achieve it, the process needs writers, actors, poets, dancers, singers, dreamers, visual artists, musicians, composers, designers and creative students of ALL kinds.

Students will work with a team of professional artists to help use all student gifts and explore the arts while forging new friendships and creating memories that will last a lifetime.


The Hansen Foundation is covering the cost of the workshops so that the student participation fee is significantly reduced to $ 50. However, no student who is truly committed to participating will be denied the opportunity due to inability to pay. Scholarships are available.


Lovewell Institute for the Creative Arts is a non-profit organization that brings together students and professional artists to deliver these unique and transformational workshops. The Lovewell team is made up of artists who make their living as music directors, playwrights, choreographers, composers, lyricists, and more.

Lovewell is based in Florida, but his roots are in Kansas. Today, Lovewell offers workshops throughout the United States and internationally. Learn more about Lovewell at
