2015 Spring Pre-Teen Workshop

Calliope Productions is accepting registrations for its 25th Annual Spring Pre-Teen Youth Theatre Workshop, which will be conducted at Calliope's Theatre at 150 Main Street in Boylston, MA.

This program is designed for students aged 8 - 12, and will meet on Saturdays at 9:00 - 11:00 am, beginning February 14. It will end with two performances of The Most Epic Birthday Party Ever, a one-act musical play by Denver Casado and Betina Hershey, on Saturday, April 11, at 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm.

During the course of this workshop, students will concentrate on performance-related skills such as diction, voice-projection, singing, stage movement, choreography, and characterization, and they will learn about technical and practical aspects of presenting plays as they work towards staging a production.
