Summer Children’s Theatre Workshop Auditions & Show

The Colchester Community Theatre (CCT) announces its Summer Children’s Theater Workshop, July 10 through July 21. Auditions will be held Thursday June 8, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. and Saturday June 10, 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. at the St. Andrew Church Hall, 128 Norwich Avenue in Colchester. The workshop is open to all children entering grade 2 through grade 9 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 will get into the program. Each child is to bring sheet music or an instrumental recording and be prepared to sing. An accompanist will be provided.
The workshop will be held at Bacon Academy Auditorium, July 10 through July 21, Monday through Friday, 9am-Noon, culminating in a show on July 22 at 2:00 p.m. The program fee is $105 per child (additional $20 for non-residents – waived for CCT members). This year, parents should register their child(ren) online BEFORE auditions on the Town of Colchester website at Activity number is 3473.
CCT will be producing Disney’s Lion King JR for this workshop. The African savannah will come to life on our stage with Simba, Rafiki and an unforgettable cast of characters as they journey from Pride Rock to the jungle… and back again, in this inspiring, coming-of-age tale.
