Calliope Teen Youth Theatre Workshops

Summer 2018

This workshop is closed to additional registration requests.

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 17. It will end with performances on Wednesday - Friday, July 18 - 20 (7:30 pm) and Saturday, July 21 (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.
