The Colchester Community Theatre (CCT) announces its Children’s Summer Theater Workshop, July 12 through July 23.
The workshop is open to all children entering grade 2 through grade 12 in the fall. Every child must audition to attend the program. There are NO exceptions. Please note that the auditions are used only for determining placement within the program, not for determining if a child is eligible to enter the program. The program is limited to 100 children. In the event that more than 100 children audition, a lottery will be held to determine which 100 children get into the program. Each child is to bring sheet music or an instrumental recording and be prepared to sing.
Auditions will be held Wednesday June 2, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, June 5, 9:00 – 11:00 a.m., at the St. Andrew Church Hall, 128 Norwich Avenue, Colchester.
An accompanist will be provided. The workshop will be held at Bacon Academy Auditorium, July 12 through July 23, Monday through Friday, 9am-Noon, culminating in a show on July 24 at 2:00 p.m. The program fee is $90 per child (additional $15 for non-residents – waived for CCT members), payable at auditions. Enrollment and health forms will be completed by parents and/or guardians at auditions as well. The actual musical for the workshop has not been selected to date. CCT is currently researching suitable material.
