Curtain Call’s 2017 Summerstock and Summerstock Junior 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.)

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

 

There are four, separate Summerstock program sessions:

 

SUMMERSTOCK CREATIVE THEATRE FOR AGES 11-16: June 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 and July 5, 6, 7, 2017 from 9:30am to 4:30pm with a showcase performance July 7, 2017 at 7:00pm.

Students learn to tap into their own creative instincts and trust their fellow performers thru Improvisation while also exploring techniques for classic and contemporary performance thru study in Shakespeare and Modern Scene Acting. Registration is $725.

SUMMERSTOCK MUSICAL THEATRE FOR AGES 11-16: July 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 2017 from 9:30am to 4:30pm with a showcase performance July 21, 2017 at 7:00pm.

Musical theatre performers need to act, sing and move well. In the theatre, we call this a “triple threat.” This fun and focused, two-week study will build confidence and technique in Singing, Acting and Dancing for musical theatre, including how to prepare for a musical theatre audition. Registration is $800.
