Summer Youth Theatre

Now entering its 34th summer, Curtain Call’s Summer Youth Theatre has provided creative opportunities for young theatre artists both on stage and behind the scenes. To participate, you must be entering 4th grade in the 2024/2025 school year through no older than age 21 (must not turn 22 before August 11, 2024). Participation is by audition and crew sign-up only.

Curtain Call’s Summer Youth Theatre is NOT a workshop program and is a separate and independent program from Curtain Call’s Summerstock Workshops. Participation is by audition and crew sign-up only. There is a $50 participation fee (discounts for siblings and scholarships for those who qualify), payable only if your child is cast or accepted onto our production crew.

Rehearsals are generally held Monday to Thursday evenings from 6:30pm to 9:30pm and some weekends during the day, beginning in mid-June. Crew work days are typically Saturdays from 10:00am to 2:00 or 3:00pm (occasionally as late as 4:00pm), beginning in late June. Tech weekend is the weekend before the production opens, and there are rehearsals and work days scheduled for both days cast and crew. (Tech Sunday is an all-day rehearsal (10:00am to 11:00pm) with dinner provided. Overall, the program provides over 100 hours of creative enrichment for young actors and technicians.
