The Hippodrome Theater, nicknamed the Hipp, is located in Downtown Gainesville. Because of COVID-19, the theater had to put some of its shows on pause, but the Hipp is still offering camps and classes for kiddos and parents this summer. Check out what the Hipp has to offer below:


For kiddos:

Hipp Kid’s Camp

This camp will consist of three sessions with the first starting June 29-July 3. “During each one-week session, campers will exercise their bodies, voices and imaginations while learning their roles and developing their characters,” according to the theater’s website. “They’ll have fun collaborating on behind-the-scenes elements of props, costumes, sets and lights.”

Starting on July 6, your kiddo will not want to miss this, and this summer, the camp will be diving into Harriet the Spy, a children’s classic.
