The Bear Musical Theatre Project is a tuition-free youth theatre camp created to continue the legacy of our dear friend and talented performer Bear Nichols who we lost tragically in 2021.


We are excited to get started for Summer 2023! During the two-week camp actors will explore music, dance, acting, improv games, and becoming part of an ensemble. Teaching artists come from Cardboard Playhouse’s alumni and company members to lead new and experienced actors through a musical from read-through to performance. Most importantly campers will have fun and make new friends. The camp ends with a fully produced performance at The Box Performance Space in downtown Albuquerque.
