Auditions – Summer Children’s Theater Workshop

The Colchester Community Theatre (CCT) announces its Summer Children’s Theater Workshop, July 11 through July 22. Auditions will be held Sunday June 12, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. and Monday June 13, 6:30- 8:00 p.m. at the Congregation Ahavath Achim (Colchester Synagogue) on 84 Lebanon Avenue in Colchester. 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. Pre-registration for auditions is REQUIRED as well. Registration can be completed on the Town of Colchester Parks & Recreation website at: https://colchesterctrec.recdesk.com/Community/Program/Detail?programId=305. Each child is to bring sheet music or an instrumental recording and be prepared to sing. An accompanist will be provided.

After auditions, those chosen to participate will be sent an invoice for the workshop fee of $135.00 per child (additional $15 Town of Colchester processing/administrative fee included).

The workshop will be held at Bacon Academy Auditorium, July 11 through July 22, Monday through Friday, 9am-Noon, culminating in a show on July 23 at 2:00 p.m. Colchester Community Theatre will be following the Colchester Public Schools and CDC guidelines during auditions and the workshop for the health and safety of our performers, patrons and staff.

CCT will be producing Broadway Junior Revue: Raise Your Voice for this workshop. Raise Your Voice is a brand-new revue featuring songs from across MTI’s Broadway Junior® collection. From Broadway Junior musicals based on classic titles like Guys and Dolls and Oliver! to beloved Disney shows like The Little Mermaid and Mary Poppins, Raise Your Voice offers a fun introduction to musical revues for young performers. In Raise Your Voice, CCT will have the opportunity to customize our show through interstitials (i.e. transitions) between numbers. We will definitely make this show our own!

Please contact Wallis Johnson at 860-267-1023 or Laura Brown at RTR1982@aol.com for additional information. CCT is sponsored by Colchester Parks & Recreation Department.

CCT is also seeking for an accompanist who can volunteer their time on these audition dates. Please contact Wallis or Laura with your availability.
