Centenary Stage Company Now Accepting Applications for the Summer Young Performers Workshop

Do you have a child in your life who is always dancing, singing, or making up stories and loves wearing costumes and makeup? Look no further than Centenary Stage Company, now accepting applications for the 2024 Summer session of the Young Performers Workshop, running July 15-August 18.

Hailed as "a state treasure" this 5-week theatre training and hands-on program for performers, ages 8-18, dedicated to the enrichment of young lives through the use of theatre arts, is designed to meet the needs of beginning, intermediate, and advanced performers interested in the theatre.

Throughout the session, students have the opportunity to learn about multiple facets of theatre arts from acting, singing and dancing, to stage management, props, and costuming with each session concluding with a live performance in August.

All new applicants must schedule an interview virtually, by phone or in-person, which will take place on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2, between 4:30-6 p.m. in the Little Theatre at 400 Jefferson Street in Hackettstown. The initial interview will cover commitment level, previous training experience, applicant goals, and expectations, and must be completed before registration.

Sign up by calling the CSC box office at 908-979-0900 or sending an email to boxoffice@centenarystageco.org. The deadline to apply is July 12 for all new and returning applicants.

Auditions will follow and are held on the first day to determine vocal and dance skill levels. The show(s) that the YPW students will put together will be chosen based on the number of students and available talents once the program begins.

Classes run Monday through Friday from 9a.m.- 4:30p.m. Tuition for the first student is $795, with a family discount of $695 for a second child. Children in the program may also purchase a commemorative t-shirt for their session for an additional $15.
