Summer on Stage
at Star Royale Theatre

Creating magical moments and lifelong memories
in the company of new forever friends


Nestled within a historic building dating back to 1912, Star Royale Theatre stands as a testament to the rich theatrical heritage of Pompton Lakes. Once a vaudeville house, then transformed into a duplex movie theater, and finally reborn as a vibrant performing arts center, this iconic venue captures the essence of creativity and innovation. Located on the second floor, the theater occupies the space that once housed the second movie screen, while the lower level has been thoughtfully repurposed into a dynamic teen center for the youth of Pompton Lakes.

Stepping into Star Royale Theatre, you will be captivated by its timeless beauty and modern amenities. The theater boasts raked stadium-style seating, ensuring that every seat offers an exceptional view of the stage. With a cozy 99-seat capacity, it provides an intimate and immersive experience for both performers and audience members alike. But what truly sets this venue apart is its state-of-the-art facilities.

Equipped with the latest lighting and sound technologies, as well as cutting-edge projection capabilities, Star Royale Theatre provides an unparalleled platform for artistic expression. Its climate and moisture-controlled environment, along with installed air purifiers, prioritize the health and safety of all participants. The theater also features wireless microphone systems, ensuring crystal-clear audio throughout performances. Furthermore, the facility offers the convenience of upstairs and downstairs lobbies, with a well-stocked concession stand in the upper lobby for refreshments during intermissions.

Star Royale Theatre stands out among other performing arts camps in the area due to its exceptional combination of historic charm and modern amenities. With its commitment to providing a state-of-the-art venue, it offers an unparalleled setting for aspiring young performers to nurture their talents. From its cozy seating arrangement to the cutting-edge technology and meticulous attention to health and safety, parents can rest assured that their child will have an extraordinary and memorable experience at Star Royale Theatre's performing arts camp.

We offer an unparalleled range of education and enrichment opportunities that will ignite your child's passion for the arts.

At Star Royale Theatre, we understand the importance of keeping things fresh and exciting. That's why each summer brings a brand new set of camp experiences, ensuring that no two years or two camps are ever the same. We continuously rotate our focuses, offering unique and innovative programs year after year. This summer, we are thrilled to introduce the very first film and theater fusion camp in NJ. Our campers will have the incredible opportunity to integrate elements of filmmaking and theatrical arts simultaneously. They will write, rehearse, film, perform, and even edit their very own original musical feature films or Broadway mash-up music videos. Additionally, they can participate in "Star Royale Live," a spin-off of SNL, where campers will write, direct, film, and perform a hilarious sketch comedy show in front of a live studio audience. As a special memento, all campers will receive a USB of their performances to take home and cherish.

For our youngest campers aged 5-9, we have the enchanting "Royal Princess Adventures." This once-in-a-lifetime experience allows them to not just be a prince or princess for a day but for an entire week. Campers can come dressed as their favorite fairytale characters and immerse themselves in singing, dancing, and storytelling with their favorite fairytale songs. It's a magical journey they won't soon forget.

Our dedicated staff consists of working professionals with years of experience in the performing arts industry. They are here to nurture and guide your child every step of the way. We believe in fostering a supportive and encouraging environment where exploration and creativity thrive. Nothing is ever forced or demanded, but rather inspired and cultivated.


If you're looking for a summer day camp that offers unparalleled opportunities for your child to explore the world of performing arts, theater, film, and musical theater, Star Royale Theatre is the place to be. Join us for a summer filled with excitement, creativity, and unforgettable experiences. Register now and let your child's star shine bright!


We prioritize the health and well-being of our campers, including their dietary needs. We kindly ask parents to pack their campers' lunches and be mindful of any allergies, dietary restrictions, or sensitivities. To ensure food safety, we recommend using a temperature-controlled bag to keep perishable items fresh. Rest assured, we have a refrigerator and microwave on-site in case campers need to store or heat their lunches.

As a peanut/tree nut free facility, we have implemented a strict policy to protect campers with allergies. We kindly request that all campers abide by this policy and refrain from bringing any nut-based products. Additionally, we do not permit sharing of food items packed in lunches to maintain a safe and inclusive environment. Please pack enough food for your camper's individual consumption.

We understand that providing lunch for your camper may pose challenges for some families. If you have concerns or experience food insecurities, or if your child relies on free lunch programs during the school year, please reach out to our director, Carmela Wolosz. She will ensure that your camper is provided with a lunch that meets their specific dietary needs and restrictions.

In order to stay hydrated throughout the day, we recommend that all campers bring a refillable water bottle with them to camp. Hydration is essential for a fun and energized experience.

At Star Royale Theatre, we strive to create a safe and inclusive environment for all campers. By working together, we can ensure that each camper enjoys a healthy and enjoyable summer camp experience.
