Boston Children's Theatre - Boston's Theatre for Young People

Center Stage Youth (Ages 7 – 10)

Classes are offered in both Boston.

Does your child love charades, role-playing and acting out stories? We’re thrilled to be offering a series of fun-filled Saturday afternoons, each one with a seasonal theme. We’ll play theatre games, work on a craft and improvise skits, and develop our favorite stories into scenes. These classes will be taught by a theatre-education specialist. At the end of the session, there will be a “sharing session” for parents.
