Calliope Teen Summer Musical

Summer 2020: Bye Bye Birdie

Calliope Productions is accepting registrations for our 30th Annual Teen Summer Musical workshop, which will be conducted at Calliope's Theatre at 150 Main Street in Boylston, MA.

This program is designed for students aged 13 - 18, and is a full-scale musical production program, in which students will rehearse and present a Broadway musical. It will meet Sundays - Thursdays (5 days each week) at 7 - 10 pm, beginning on Sunday, June 14. It will end with performances on Wednesday - Friday, July 15 - 17 (7:30 pm) and Saturday, July 18 (2:00 pm and 7:30 pm).

During the course of this workshop, students will learn and develop several performance skills including speech, voice projection, singing, stage movement, choreography, and characterization, and will learn about technical and practical aspects of presenting plays as they work towards staging this musical production.

The workshop will be taught by Dave Ludt with others on Calliope's staff. The tuition fee is $300 per student, with space filled on a first-come basis.
