Calliope Pre-Teen Youth Summer Theatre Workshops

Summer 2021

Calliope Productions is accepting registrations for our 30th 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 28. It will end with performances of Willy Wonka, Jr on Tuesday & Wednesday, July 27 & 28 at 7:00 pm, and on Thursday & Friday, July 29 & 30 at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm both days.

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 Willy Wonka, Jr with music by Leslie Bricusse.

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.
