Calliope Workshops

For 2022 we are pleased to announce our 31st season of theatre workshops.

Calliope offers these workshops:

Registrations for the Pre-Teen Spring Workshop open on January 3, 2022.

Registrations for the Teen Summer Musical and the Pre-Teen Summer Workshop open on February 28.

Registrations for the August Musical Theatre Development workshop open on February 28.

Registrations for the Pre-Teen Fall Workshop open on May 1.

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


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

1) All students in a workshop must have started their Covid-19 vaccination process no later than 9 days before the first workshop session, and proof of this must be provided by parents on or before the first workshop session. (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 www.covidactnow.org.


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: print it 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 workshop is full. Calliope's workshops fill quickly, so we do not have a stated deadline. 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 only 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
  • two weeks before the start of either Summer workshop.

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