Summer Youth Theatre

Now entering it’s 33rd 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 2023/2024 school year through no older than age 21 (must not turn 22 before August 14, 2023). 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. 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. Overall, the program provides over 100 hours of creative enrichment for young actors and technicians.

Curtain Call’s Summer Youth Theatre is proud to announce its 33rd production:

The Addams Family is a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
