Calliope Pre-Teen Youth Summer Theatre Workshops

Summer 2022: Seussical, Jr

Calliope Productions is accepting registrations for our 31st Annual Pre-Teen Youth Summer 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 Mondays - Thursdays (4 days each week) at 9 am - 1 pm, beginning on Monday, June 27. (There will be no rehearsal on Monday, July 4.) It will end with performances of Seussical, Jr on Wednesday - Friday, July 27 - 29 (7:00 pm), on Thursday, July 28 (2:00 pm), and Saturday, July 30 (2:00 pm).

The Summer Pre-Teen Youth Theatre Workshop Program is an intensive performance-centered program that exposes students to the fundamentals of stagecraft and develops students' skills in singing, voice projection and diction, characterization, stage movement, and choreography, as well as providing them with confidence-building techniques and team-building activities. The production focus of this year's workshop will be a presentation of the musical Seussical, Jr.

The workshop will be taught by Megan Burke with musical direction by Matt Kim. The tuition fee is $450 per student, with space filled on a first-come basis.

IMPORTANT: Because of continuing concerns about Covid-19, the following protocols are in effect for Calliope's workshops:

1) All students participating in a Calliope summer 2022 workshop MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED by the first day of the workshop session. Proof of this (via a copy or photo of the vaccination card) must be provided by parents on or before the day the workshop begins.

2) We will continue to follow updates on local risk levels and masking policies throughout the spring, and will assess whether students will need to be masked for rehearsals closer to the start date of the workshops.
