Summer Theater Workshop

As we continue to closely monitor the health guidelines and updates from the CDC and the State of Massachusetts, we concluded that, in the interest of our health, it is safer for us to cancel the 2020 Summer Theater Workshop.

We recognize this is disappointing news; we are just as disappointed! We know you have many choices for summer programming for your children, and we greatly value the trust you place in the summer enrichment programs we offer. We will be using this time to plan future programming that is adaptable to the “new normal” we are facing. We apologize for this change in our scheduling, and we look forward to continuing to share tradition through song, dance, and drama soon!

About the Summer Revels Apprentice Program (RAP)

Young people ages 16-17, who are selected, will participate in the leadership of the Revels Summer Workshop.  Apprentices will be involved with all aspects of production; script writing, blocking, stage management, prop and set building, costume design and construction, videography and photography. They may also have a walk on part in the show. They will assist in supervising the younger workshop participants.  Upon successful completion of the workshop they will receive a letter of recommendation.   

The RAP positions are limited. Young people ages 16-17 who are interested in a RAP position should schedule an interview with Lilliam Gomes


NOTE: Due to the uncertain trajectory of COVID-19 and its impact on social gatherings, Revels is ready to shift to an online version of this program. As of now, we are proceeding with an in-person workshop. We will notify you by July 1 if the format changes.
