202020 - Willie’s 20th anniversary
Little Mermaid and Legally Blonde
We didn’t think anything could be more exciting than Summer 2019. B-b-b-but….. we believe next year's camps will be even more popular and may sell-out even quicker than Summer 2019! Our allegiance is to alumni campers, so we encourage you to reserve your child's spot ASAP.
Willie Wilson's love for theatre and working with children inspired him to develop a Theatre Arts Group (T.A.G.) program, which he initiated at the Westwood school district in 2003 for the elementary and middle schools. The success of the program brought him recognition and support from the faculty, Board of Ed. and P.S.O., which led to an expansion of his T.A.G. program to neighboring districts and a summer camp program.
Shows which Willie has produced and directed for the T.A.G. program include: Into The Woods, School of Rock, Footloose, Guys and Dolls, Legally Blonde, You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown, High School Musical, Grease, The Wizard of Oz, Beauty & The Beast, Bye, Bye Birdie, and The Sound of Music. In addition, Willie has written and composed several original works including The Wonderful Imagination, The New Principal, Give My Regards to Berkeley, Dreams Come True, We Can Do It Ourselves, Oh Bugsy, Make Me a Star!!, The Heart of the Game, and BERK-GLEE. Mr. Wilson's after-school programs are held at Berkeley and Brookside schools in Westwood, Washington School in Washington Twp., Mendham Middle School in Mendham, Our Lady of Mercy Academy in Park Ridge, Woodside Avenue School in Franklin Lakes; West Nyack Elementary in West Nyack, NY plus Link I.B. World School and Woodglen School, both in New City, NY.
“Mr. Wilson’s T.A.G program is the P.S.O.’s biggest fundraiser.”

“The children in your program walk a little taller and are quicker to raise their hands in class.”
– Principal Ray Gonzalez
