It was fun, loved acting and rehearsing a lot of the parts. All I can say is they have a LOT of hats, but I will say that I'm coming back next year...

The Children's Theater Workshop is preparing for the 25th season of the Summer Theater Workshop for the children of Pamlico County. The program takes place in the “Old Theater” on Broad Street in Oriental starting July 5th through July 30th, 2021. The workshop will consist of four two-week, half day programs with appropriate age groupings.

The workshop takes place at The Old Theater in downtown Oriental, providing the perfect backdrop of culture, arts, and history.

Registration for the 2021 Summer Theater Workshop is now open! This year's session will be the 25th Anniversary of our program and we want to celebrate with YOU!  Click here  for the form!

To comply with safety recommendations, we will limit the size of our groups. Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. 

The workshop has a longstanding commitment to enriching the lives of children by providing a structured arts program led by an exceptional, and carefully chosen, theater arts Drama Coach.

During the age-divided, 2-week sessions, children are introduced to theater skills such as acting fundamentals, learning to speak on stage, using drama exercises by playing theater games, see the behind-the-scenes work, learn to work in peer groups, and meet new friends.

Learning about the performing arts can teach important skills in life, such as self-confidence, cooperation, self-discipline, and concentration. Imagination is encouraged!

We keep the registration fee affordable at $25 to make it possible for all children to attend. Scholarships are available thanks to the generosity of our donors.
