Tuition Assistance.jpg

CTA is committed to making theatre education available to all, regardless of income status. If tuition poses a financial hardship, scholarships and payment plans are available. For more information, please email CTA's Executive Director, April Forrer, at aprilforrer@childrenstheatreofannapolis.org. All queries will be kept confidential.

COVID Safety Protocol:

  • MASK ON! All individuals who enter CTA's buildings will be required to wear a face mask (covering the nose & mouth), regardless of vaccination status. This is a result of rising cases of COVID-19 among vaccinated and non vaccinated individuals in our area & CTA's concern of keeping everyone safe.

  • Only students pre-registered for the workshop will be admitted to CTA.

  • Parents must check students in and out with a teaching artist/staff member at the front door.

  • Doors will remain locked. Guests must call the office (410-757-2281) or ring the doorbell.

  • Upon entrance all staff, teaching artists, students, and guests must have a temperature scan (no one will be permitted entrance with a temperature of 100.4 or more) and must sanitize their hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer.

  • COVID-19 Assumption of Risk, Release, and Waiver of Liability Agreement - All parents/guardians must sign & return along with the usual release/waiver documentation.

  • No drinking from the water fountain. Staff, teaching artists, and students may use the water fountain to re/fill their water bottles only.

  • During the workshop period (and in the few weeks after), should your student/s or someone in your household test positive for COVID-19 you must notify CTA (info@childrenstheareofannapolis.org) immediately. We will then notify all families in that workshop session, teaching artists, CTA's Board of Directors and staff that someone involved (names will not be released) has tested positive and recommend that everyone take the necessary actions (example: consult your family physician/doctor, be tested, go in to quarantine for the time period required.) We will then evaluate going into an online session for the time period mandated for quarantine.

  • Should a new state or county order change any of these requirements or prohibit us from being in-person, we will adjust our schedule according to the time period mandated.

PRODUCTION WORKSHOPS with Tiffany Shannon Productions

Through theatre production workshops students gain experience and knowledge in acting techniques, improvisation, characterization, movement, props, scenery, and much more. These workshops conclude with a final performance on our main stage. In production workshops, teamwork is a major focus and all participants are guaranteed a role. We encourage students with all levels of experience to attend. * NOTE: Theatre Production Workshop show titles are subject to change due to cast size and requirements.

 
THEATRE PRODUCTION WORKSHOPS
Silver's Secret Spring 2022.png

This goofy pirate play is a treasure chest full of silliness with cheerleader mermaids, ghosts, smugglers, and lobsters as comic stagehands!  As the famous pirate Long John Silver lies on his deathbed, he sends for his sons, Red Beard and Black Beard, and his daughter, No Beard.  Alas, his offspring didn’t inherit their father’s pirating skills!  Luckily, each bumbling pirate has a “smee” as an assistant, because their father sends them off to find the three keys to the treasure chest that holds his life’s treasure.  The children and their respective smees dash off to adventures, for whoever finds the keys first will inherit the booty!  Silver’s Secret is a swashbuckling good time for everyone!
