“The Watertown Children’s Theatre has a history of quality theatre education from full-scale musical productions to improvisational workshops in addition to dance, voice, technical theatre and stage combat,” said Founding Artistic Director Dinah Lane. “The merger is a natural outcome of the long-standing partnership between our two institutions. Each has particular strengths in the areas of creativity and educational resources, which, combined, will create expanded opportunities for artists of all levels and interests.”

Participants should expect that some weeks they may be called for rehearsal on all rehearsal days, some weeks less than that. In addition, it is often the case that participants will be called to attend rehearsal for only part of the rehearsal time on a given day. It is WCT’s goal to keep students active and engaged throughout the process. We schedule actors only for scenes/songs that they are actively a part of in order to keep each student feeling productive and involved during his/her time in rehearsal.
Although our absence policy allows only 2 excused absences, any changes to a child’s role due to additional or prolonged absences due to illness will be addressed on a case by case basis. Should children arrive for rehearsals/classes presenting with flu-like symptoms, parents will be contacted immediately to pick up their child.
*continuing student status does not extend to new students registering for summer session.
