Summer 2017 Jr Company Program!
Become an actor in The Summer Theatre of New Canaan's Junior Company! We've created this musical performance program just for middle school students entering grades 5-9. Junior Company cast will work with professional actors, director, choreographer, designers and crew from our company who will instruct, rehearse and help them put on their show in our Tent Theatre at Wwaveny Park in New Canaan. All students who wish to participate must first register and, if possible, attend the audition. The program is limited to the first 30 students who register. All students who register will be accepted into the company and cast in the show. Auditions are held to help the creative team for cast placement.
