Acting Assistant for Pre-Teen Youth Summer Program (Ages 9-12)


Each summer, The Hanover Theatre runs Youth Summer Programs for students ages 6-18. The pre-teen program introduces students, ages 9-12, to the joys of participating in a show. Students work with a director/choreographer and music director over the course of two weeks to present a junior production of a Broadway show. Broadway Junior musicals are condensed, author-approved versions of classic musicals, custom-tailored to the needs of young people. The music is written in keys that are appropriate for developing voices. Students will attend daily classes where material from the show will be used to teach them skills in areas of music, drama and dance. All classes are taught by master teaching artists. A 60-minute Broadway Junior performance on The Hanover Theatre’s mainstage will be presented at the end of the program.
