Curtain Call’s Summerstock and Summerstock Junior are full-day, conservatory-style workshop programs in dramatic and musical theatre arts. Students hone creative, collaborative and social skills as well as performance skills. Each session runs two weeks and accommodates a maximum of 40 students. Those students are then placed in age-appropriate groups for a rotating schedule of study in a variety of performance subjects under a team of specialized instructors. For example:

Monday

Group A

Group B

Group C

Class 1

Voice

Acting

Dance

Class 2

Dance

Voice

Acting

Class 3

Acting

Dance

Voice

(See the session descriptions below for what specific areas of study each session explores).

Class work is highlighted in a student showcase at the end of each session. A lunch and snack break will be part of the daily schedule. Lunch will normally take place on the playground and picnic area of the Sterling Farms property, weather permitting, or in our Dressing Room Theatre where tables are available for seating. Students should bring their own lunch and snacks in a bag or lunch box, as well as a water bottle, clearly labeled with their name. Please avoid packing any nut-related items as a number of students (and sometimes staff) often suffer from nut-related allergies.

ALL CORRESPONDENCE WITH PARENTS WILL TAKE PLACE BY EMAIL. Once you have registered, you will receive an automated confirmation from our online system. Further information and any necessary forms (waivers, photo releases and emergency/medical forms) will be sent via email at least two weeks prior to the start of the session (if not sooner). If you do have questions in the meantime, please contact Education Director Brian Bianco at brian@curtaincallinc.com or 203-329-8207 (x700).

Sibling Discounts and Payment Plan Options are available. Scholarships are available for students in need. Details on how to apply as well as information on our staff’s backgrounds can be found in the sidebar to the right if you are on your computer or tablet (or to the bottom if you are on your phone).

Drop-offs are no earlier than 30 minutes prior to the program start, and pick up is no later than 30 minutes after the program ends. Because we are a fully-operational theatre company and not a “summer camp,” our staff has multiple duties and tasks to attend to regarding preparation and safety for our program prior to the day’s start as well as at the end of the day, preparing for evening activities, and are not available to supervise students for extended hours.

While our stages, lobbies, restrooms, dressing rooms, and our studio in our Main Office all have handicap access, the studios and dressing rooms on the upper level of the Kweskin and Dressing Room Theatres have stairs only – no elevators.

For more information, email brian@curtaincallinc.com or call 203-329-8207 (x700).
