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 August 15.

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 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.


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 for a workshop are accepted until all places are filled or when the waitlist 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.
