Calliope Workshops

For 2021 we are pleased to announce our 30th season of theatre workshops.

Calliope offers these workshops:

Registrations are open for the Pre-Teen Summer Workshop.

All workshops are conducted at Calliope's Theatre at 150 Main Street in Boylston, MA.



IMPORTANT HEALTH NOTICE

Workshops will meet or exceed strict health and safety protocols that include - but are not limited to - Massachusetts Covid-19 regulations for theaters and performance venues, CDC pandemic guidelines, and Covid-19 rules implemented for Massachusetts public schools. In addition, at least one staff member with Red Cross First Aid certification will be present at all times.

Rehearsals will be conducted in small groups whenever possible, with use of outdoor spaces (Calliope’s front and rear lawns, as well as the parking lot) when weather permits.

In accordance with Massachusetts guidelines to avoid congestion by eliminating intermissions, both productions this year will be one-act (80-minute long) “junior” versions of Broadway musicals.


Registration Requests

Students enroll in Calliope's workshops in two steps:

  • Submit the online Registration Request Form
  • Find the request confirmation email sent to you. You may need to check your Spam/Junk folder. Print the confirmation email and the Calliope Medical and Photo form (see links below). Sign and send in the Registration Request form, and the Medical and Photo form, plus a non-refundable $50 deposit within 2 weeks of the online sign-up.

Registration Requests are accepted until the stated deadline or when the workshop is full. You will receive an Enrollment confirmation email when your student has been enrolled or put on the waitlist.

Once a workshop is full, additional signed Registration Requests are placed on the waitlist. The $50 deposits of students not enrolled by the start of the workshop are returned at that time.

Workshop registration is closed in case the waitlist has many candidates.

IMPORTANT: Early submission of the online Registration Request form does not guarantee a spot in the desired workshop. It gives us the order of processing the signed Registration Request forms when we receive more than one at a time. The deposit must be received within 2 weeks of the online sign-up.

The balance of a Workshop's Tuition is due

  • on the first workshop day for the Spring and Fall Pre-Teen workshops

  • The Calliope Medical and Photo form is available in two document types.
