Calliope Workshops

For 2020 we are pleased to announce our 30th 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:

  • Submit the online Registration Request Form
  • Find the request confirmation email sent to you: print it and the Calliope Medical and Photo form (see links below). Sign and send in the Registration Request form, and the Medical and Photo form, plus a non-refundable $50 deposit within 2 weeks of the online sign-up.

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 an Enrollment 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 deposit must be received within 2 weeks of the online sign-up.

The balance of a Workshop's Tuition is due

  • on the first workshop day for the Spring and Fall Pre-Teen workshops
  • two weeks before the start of either Summer workshop.

  • The Calliope Medical and Photo form is available in two document types.
