While Cottage Theatre strives to provide performing opportunities for people of all ages, we confess we have a particular fondness for getting children involved in theatre. That's what CT PLAY is all about : providing ways for children to experience the magic (and hard work) of putting on a play. We regularly offer roles for children within our main season, where youth can work side-by-side with adult actors. In addition we offer some just-for-children opportunities like summer camps. To make sure you hear about CT PLAY offerings in a timely fashion, please sign up for our CT PLAY e-news list.
Announcing our 2013 CT PLAY summer camps:
