Calliope Pre-Teen Youth Theatre Workshops

Fall 2021 - Workshop is Full

Calliope Productions is accepting registration requests for our 30th Annual Fall 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 9 - 12, and will meet on Saturdays at 9:00 - 11:00 am, beginning on September 18. It will end with two performances of Could You Hug a Cactus?, a musical by Beat by Beat Press.

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.

The workshop will be taught by Megan Burke with others on Calliope's staff. The tuition fee is $175 per student, with space filled on a first-come basis.
