Does your child like to pretend? Did they miss out on attending in-person camps this summer? Do they like creating stories with friends? Our Virtual Summer Camps is modeled after our in-person camps, with adjustments to best fit the needs of the online learning experience. This virtual program will unlock your child’s creativity and take them on an adventure into the imagination! Young actors choose their own characters and put them all together into an original story, which they write, rehearse, and perform as a virtual play on the last day of the workshop. While having fun and making new friends, your child will . . .
Have you missed being part of a Gemini show? Do you know the story of “Robin Hood”? Does it even matter? Nope, because Fitzooth and his Merry Players will help tell the story, so that you can be part of the show!
Join us on Facebook for “Robin Hood, The Game” to watch a pre-recorded live performance. It is fun! It is wacky! It is absolutely hilarious! – Laughter is a good thing right now.
This show is FREE to watch and participate in, but we will welcome donations of any kind before, during, and after which will go into our “Fall Fund” to ensure we can maintain classes starting in September. This fund will also help us keep making shows both pre-recorded and live for our families to view online, until we are able to see you in person for a full production again!!!

Co-Founder Gemini Theater Company
Gemini Theater Company stands with Black Americans and all People of Color (POC) during this fight for equality. The actions that led to the death of George Floyd are not new, and they have reminded so many of us that the unethical and inhumane treatment of citizens must come to an end. Our staff, artists, and volunteers are here to listen, support, and be allies for all those who need us at this crucial time and moving forward.
As an organization that focuses on children, youth, and teen programming, we have always strived to create an environment where equality, acceptance, and safety are our top priorities. Children can be taught, especially through the arts, how to embrace and respect all the differences humans bring to this world, seeing that those differences are what make each of us amazing individuals. Instead of fearing what is not understood, we teach them to ask questions and to listen, so we can learn from each other and not from what we assume we “should” feel because of past, and present, misconceptions that violence and hate are acceptable responses.
We understand the importance of discussing with your children the current state of our country. We also understand that it can be difficult to explain what is happening right in their own town, especially for younger children. There are many resources available from books to websites to television shows (like Sesame Street), that have been accessible for years and have also created new programs in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death. These can prove to be invaluable resources for parents. We also highly encourage talking to friends, neighbors, or co-workers who are directly affected by racism. They are the best resource to help us learn how we can talk to children and youth, to teach them about equality and how to be an ally through what they understand naturally: friendship. It is these bonds that can only get stronger as kids grow together through the love of their friendships.
Gemini Theater Company stands with the Black Community and all POC. #BLACKLIVESMATTER
Stay safe. Stay healthy. Stay magical.

I want to thank you for everything you do for our kids. They come back to the school and talk about you for days and days. You make a big difference in their lives, and we appreciate it so much.
This is by far the BEST theater program for children in the Pittsburgh area! My daughter enjoyed every minute of summer camp and gained so much confidence along the way while learning about the various elements of the theater. Kudos!
