Chelsea Youth Theatre

Summer Shakespeare Intensive
June 27-July 31 • Monday-Friday 6-8:30 • Ages 11-18
Directed by Andrea Rios and Armando Rivera

Join us for a Summer Acting Intensive that will produce a production of Hamlet in Spanish as part of our summer Apollinaire in the Park. Each summer Apollinaire Theatre produces a Free show in the park in both English and Spanish. This summer our youth theatre students will be joining the professional cast to present the Spanish language version of Hamlet.

This five week program will include classes in acting, text, movement, and stage combat, and on-going rehearsals. Actors from the professional cast of Hamlet will also offer special workshops in their areas of expertise. Participants will present Hamlet in PORT Park on Saturday July 30 and Sunday July 31.

No prior acting or Shakespeare experience is required, just interest, enthusiasm, commitment, and a desire to learn. Class work will be bilingual, but the final production will be in Spanish and preference will be given to students who speak Spanish. (English language classes will begin this fall!)

Cost for the program is $575
Scholarships are available for ALL students with financial need. Please fill out the financial aid application.

Cada verano nuestra compañía de teatro Apollinaire Theatre produce un espectáculo gratuito en el parque y, en reconocimiento de que vivimos en una comunidad bilingüe, las obras son presentadas en español e inglés. Este verano nuestros jóvenes estudiantes de actuación tendrán la gran oportunidad de unirse al elenco profesional para presentar la versión de Hamlet en español los días sábado 30 y domingo 31 de julio en PORT Park.

El verano intensivo dura cinco semanas y será una gran aventura donde los jóvenes aprenderán sobre actuación, literatura, combate escénico y movimiento, con ayuda de los jóvenes directores, Andrea Ríos y Armando Rivera, así como reconocidos artistas invitados y los actores profesionales de Apollinaire Theatre.

Chelsea Youth Theatre

The Chelsea Youth Theatre had its inception in 1997 as an intensive summer program. The program included classes in acting, voice, movement, and improvisation, a production workshop which focused on designing and building the sets, props, and costumes for their own production, and rehearsals. The program culminated in performances of an adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream. We also partnered with Shakespeare & Co. and the Chelsea Public Schools to bring educational programming into Chelsea's schools, beginning with a production of MacBeth.

With our move to the Chelsea Theatre Works we have expanded opportunities for youth to apprentice and intern with Apollinaire Theatre Company, working with professional directors, stage managers, and designers, or participating in productions as actors. The components are designed to give young people the opportunity to relate to the program on various levels: participants can be involved on a short term basis, and for those who choose to be involved on an on-going basis there are increasing opportunities as they progress.

It has long been our goal to create a dedicated youth arts space with a black-box theater within the Chelsea Theatre Works, so that we can expand the CTY to a year-round program. Construction has begun on a storefront space in our building, and that goal is now nearing fruition, with a planned completion date of mid 2016.
