Calliope Workshops

For 2017 we are pleased to announce our 27th season of theatre workshops.

Calliope offers these workshops:

Registrations open on January 1 for the Pre-Teen Spring and Summer Workshops, as well as for the Summer Teen Musical.

Registrations for the Pre-Teen Fall Workshop open on May 1.

All workshops are conducted at Calliope's Theatre at 150 Main Street in Boylston, MA.


Registration Requests

Students enroll in Calliope's workshops in two steps:

When the online Registration Request form has been submitted, you will receive a confirmation email with the details you provided. Please sign and send in either
  • a printout of the Registration Request form web page (with fields filled in), or
  • a printout of your confirmation email.

Registration Requests are accepted until the workshop is full. Calliope's workshops fill quickly, so we do not have a stated deadline. You will receive a confirmation email when your student has been enrolled or put on the waitlist.

Once a workshop is full, additional signed Registration Requests are placed on the waitlist. The $50 deposits of students not enrolled by the start of the workshop are returned at that time.

Workshop registration is closed only in case the waitlist has many candidates.

IMPORTANT: Early submission of the online Registration Request form does not guarantee a spot in the desired workshop. It gives us the order of processing the signed Registration Request forms when we receive more than one at a time.

The balance of a Workshop's Tuition is due on the first workshop day.
