Crash Course in Comedy 2021

At MacGuffin, no matter the circumstances, we’re ready to help you grow as actors!

All of MacGuffin’s  2021 summer camps will be in person. Our COVID-19 protocols will be forthcoming.  Each actor and their parents/guardians will be asked to sign an agreement concerning the various rules we’ll need to have a safe camp experience. We’ll have a limited number of actors in each camp so we advise securing your spot as soon as possible.
