Newton Youth Players

Newton Youth Players

School Year Theatre Programs

Our after-school program for elementary school children, grades 2 through 5, runs through the fall, winter and spring seasons. During this time we put on three adaptations of beloved Broadway musicals with multiple casts to choose from - Monday evenings, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.


Summer Theatre Arts Program

Our morning theatre program gives children an opportunity to be part of a summerstock experience in a day-camp-like setting. Young actors entering grades 1 through 6 spend their mornings with professionals who specialize in drama, music, scenery design and choreography. This fun-filled three week program culminates in a wonderful musical production.
