Youth Summer Program
We are excited to announce dates for our 9th annual Youth Summer Program (YSP), offering programming for ages 6-8, 9-12 and 13-18.
Children’s Program (Ages 6-8)
Two Weeks: June 26 – July 7 (no class July 4)
Monday - Friday, 9 AM - 3 PM
The children’s program offers students, ages 6-8, opportunities to learn and explore in the world of musical theatre. Daily classes feature theatre games, dance combinations, music appreciation, singing, visual arts and much, much more. All classes are taught by master teaching artists. A showcase of student work will be held on the final day of the program!
Pre-Teen Program (Ages 9-12)
Two Weeks: July 31 – August 12
Monday - Friday, 8:30 AM - 2:30 PM
The pre-teen program introduces students, ages 9-12, to the joy of participating in a show. Students work with a director, choreographer, and music director over the course of two weeks to present a junior production of a Broadway show. Broadway Junior musicals are condensed, author-approved versions of classic musicals, custom-tailored to the needs of young people. The music is written in keys that are appropriate for developing voices. Students will attend daily classes where material from the show will be used to teach them skills in areas of music, drama and dance. All classes are taught by master teaching artists. Two performances of a 60-minute Broadway Junior performance on The Hanover Theatre’s mainstage will be presented on Saturday, August 12.
Teen Program (Ages 13-18)
Session II: July 31 – August 19
Our teen program, now in its 9th year, offers students, ages 13-18, daily morning classes focusing on music, drama and dance as well as afternoon rehearsals for a final production. Two sessions will be offered. All classes are taught by master teaching artists. Students will present three performances of a full-scale Broadway musical at the end of each session on The Hanover Theatre’s mainstage.
