Summer Day Program

This summer we are offering three two-week sessions of fun and exciting theatrical and musical adventures. Each fun and engaging session will use material from popular musicals to explore performance and theatre design skills! For half the day, students will use theatre games and activities in scene study, movement, and voice & speech, to build technique — diving headfirst into the material and exploring multiple roles! The other half of the day, students receive hands-on experience in principles of costume, scenic, and prop design, using the show as a jumping-off point for their designs. The session will culminate in a showcase where students will share what they have learned with one another!

The summer day program will be at Arlington Children’s Theatre, 115 Massachusetts Avenue. As always, you may register for multiple sessions and will have a fresh, new experience each time!
