Summer Workshop 2017

June 26 - July 9




Musical Theatre

Workshops For Kids Ages 8-15


Our kids' workshops have been "center-stage" at the theater since its inception. The workshops introduce youth to the adventure of performing on stage in an environment that encourages each participant to explore his or her talents in a friendly and structured setting. Workshops are available during the summer break, usually late June through mid-late July.


Past workshops include The Little Mermaid, Jr., Beauty and the Beast Jr., Fractured Fairy Tales, Annie Jr., and Fiddler on the Roof Jr.


Workshops are designed to teach through "doing" without being intimidating. All registrants perform a full junior performance on stage at the end of the workshop


All participants are given the chance to practice the basics of stage performance - singing, dancing, technical aspects, backstage, costumes, hair and make-up. Each child is carefully coached and encouraged in every aspect of theatre art.


Summer Workshop Directors are chosen for their abilities in theatre as well as their abilities to work with children.
