Calliope Pre-Teen Youth Theatre Workshops

Fall 2022: Disney's Jungle Book Kids

Calliope Productions is accepting registrations for our 31st 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 ages 9 - 12 and will meet from 9:00 am - 11:00 am, on seven successive Saturdays, from September 17 through October 29, and conclude with two performances of "Disney's The Jungle Book (Kids edition)," a one-act musical, on Saturday, November 5, at 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm.

Age requirements: Students must be at least 9 years old on 09/17/2022 and younger than age 13 on 11/05/2022.

During 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 musical direction by Devynn Boudreau. The tuition fee is $175 per student, with space filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

IMPORTANT: Because of continuing concerns about COVID-19, the following protocols are in effect for this program:

1) All students in the workshop must be vaccinated against COVID-19, and proof of this must be provided by parents on or before the first workshop session on September 17. (Proof may consist of a photo of the child’s CDC card.)

2) Face masks will be worn during workshop sessions if the Covid-19 threat for Worcester County is at 'severe' or 'very high' levels - as reported at
