Magic Circle Theater

Grades 6-9

Magic Circle Theater is New England's oldest theater by and for children, in session daily from 9:00 am-4:00 pm for six weeks, in late June- early August. The company consists of young artists currently in grades 6-9, meeting each day to rehearse, construct scenery, create costumes, and perform. The summer's public productions occur between the 3rd and 6th weeks of the program running three children's plays in repertory in the Balch Arena Theater.

Magic Circle Theater emphasizes the importance of those backstage as well as those onstage. Each student will appear onstage for one of the three productions and will assume a technical or backstage role in the others. Students will tackle a variety of technical positions, including scenery, stage management, lighting, costumes, scenic painting, and house management. Each day, the Magic Circle program is structured to include time for workshops in acting, music, dance, production design., and construction.

Partial registrations will not be accepted as students must plan on attending the entire six-week program. Acceptance into Magic Circle is by attending an informational workshop being held on the weekend of early February (there will be additional workshop dates TBA). Both returning and new Magic Circle applicants are required to attend this workshop. Workshop information will be mailed upon receipt of application form.
