Children’s Theatre (CT)

Children’s Theatre began in 1991 and was the CSC’s first creative arts program. Volunteers brainstorm, write, and produce their own original skits in a troupe of 10 students. After the shows are prepared and rehearsed, volunteers perform their creations for children in various hospitals, community centers, after school programs, and domestic abuse shelters throughout Boston. CT brings inspiration and entertainment to children who don’t generally have access to arts education.

Time commitment is about two hours each Thursday night (8pm-10pm) for most of the semester for a program-wide meeting and troupe rehearsal. Toward the end of the semester, meetings are replaced by site visits where volunteers perform their skit and conduct informal theatre workshops that include improv games and cheers.

CT requires no previous theatre experience, and most volunteers don’t have any.

Some of Children’s Theatre’s performance sites include Shriner’s Burn Hospital, The Home for Little Wanderers and The Elizabeth Stone House.
