There are familiar and fantastic fall programs, as well as brand new ones, this fall at Watertown Children’s Theatre. Programs for K-9 offer a little something for everyone!
Dr. Dolittle travels the world, and the cast of our fall musical will trot, fly and crawl across the stage in search of the great pink sea snail! Open to grades 3-5, Program Orientation begins Sunday, September 9, 2012, with rehearsals beginning September 23, 2012. Junior Players, our Dr. Dolittle companion program for grades 1-2, will meet on Mondays beginning September 24, 2012, to learn songs and dances to perform as part of the Dr. Dolittle cast. Performances are November 16-18, 2012 in the Charles Mosesian Theater at the Arsenal Center for the Arts.
In our Play Factory production of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, students in grades 6-9 will spend a creepy weekend on a secret island. A small ensemble will share the secrets that happen there, and perform them for the public in the intimate Black Box Theater. Rehearsals begin on Tuesday, September 11. Performances are October 26-28, 2012, in the Black Box Theater at the Arsenal Center for the Arts.
Looking for something new for your preschooler or homeschooler? Why not try out one of our new programs this fall? Preschool children ages 2-5, and their parents, are welcome to join us for Play with Me, and explore dance, movement and dramatic play on Tuesday mornings, beginning September 18, 2012.
