Summerstock Full-Day Workshop Programs:

Our SUMMERSTOCK and SUMMERSTOCK JUNIOR programs are full-day, theatre arts workshops for ages 6 thru 16. Each session culminates in a showcase performance on the final date.

The maximum number of students accepted for each two-week session is forty (40). Students are grouped according to their date of birth and will rotate throughout the day in these age-appropriate groups between experienced teaching artists for specialized instruction. Our staff consists of three (3), specialized instructors, our program director, a program assistant and three (3) to six (6) classroom assistants.

Students should bring a lunch each day. Refrigerators and microwave ovens are available for use at the theatre complex. There is no food service or transportation provided. We also have access to the playground on the Sterling Farms Complex for outdoor activities.

Discounts are available for siblings (10% off for each additional child). Scholarships and payment plans are also available for families in need. (See our Workshop page for scholarship application requirements or call 203-329-8207 x16.)

Please inform us of any allergies, special needs, conditions or medications.

Each Summerstock and Summerstock Junior session is two weeks. There is NO registration for just one week of any program session. Students must be available for both weeks of any session and its performance showcase.

REGISTRATION IS STILL AVAILABLE FOR ALL SUMMERSTOCK PROGRAMS (just click on the appropriate registration links below).

There are four, separate Summerstock program sessions:

SUMMERSTOCK CREATIVE THEATRE FOR AGES 11-16:

Musical theatre performers need to act, sing and move well.

We are grateful for the tremendous and diverse pool of talent seen at auditions. Even if you did not make it into the cast this year, you were part of an extremely powerful group of performers that made decisions very challenging for our production team. If you were not cast, please consider joining us behind the scenes. We are still recruiting reliable and responsible young artists for our tech crew, and in a show like PIPPIN that offers so much “magic to do,” there’s an abundance of creative opportunities available. If you are interested, please contact our Education Director Brian J. Bianco at brian@curtaincallinc.com or 203-329-8207 x16.

Our First Company Meeting and Ad Canvass Day is June 17, 2017 from 10am to 2pm. More information will be coming to you by email as well as postal mail.
