Calliope Musical Theatre Development Workshop

August 2022: Totally Awesome! A Superhero Musical

Calliope Productions is accepting registrations for the 1st Musical Theatre Development Workshop, which will be conducted at Calliope's Theatre at 150 Main Street in Boylston, MA.

This program is designed for students entering grades 6 - 10. Students will learn how a musical goes from the creator’s mind, to the page, and eventually to the stage! This production will be a world premiere. It will meet Monday - Friday, 9 am - 12 pm for two weeks, beginning on Monday, August 1. It will end with workshop presentations on Saturday, August 13 at 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm.

During the course of this workshop, students will learn and develop several performance skills including speech, voice projection, singing, stage movement, choreography, and characterization, and will learn about technical and practical aspects of presenting plays as they work towards staging this musical production.

The workshop will be taught by Stephen Murray. The tuition fee is $400 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.
