Join us for an exciting, fast-paced two-week residential camp! The MSAI Arts Camp exists to promote the artistic and creative abilities of individuals. Participants in this camp will receive wide-ranging and intensive instruction in a variety of art forms. Classes offered will include dance, vocal and instrumental music, visual arts, literary arts, and theater. The courses will provide excellent opportunities for artistic development for those with previous arts training, as well as those who are getting their first exposure to the arts.
When evening rolls around, there is even more fun to be had, like cookouts, games on the quad, and visits to the Delta State pool! Campers will stay on campus at Delta State University. Arts Camp culminates with final presentations and performances that are open to the community at the Delta and Pine Land Theatre main-stage in the Bologna Performing Arts Center.

When Oscar Diggs, a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora, Evanora and Glinda, who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz™ but into a better man as well.
