Our programs are designed to appeal to a wide range of ages. We create programming for young people
, community groups
and teaching artists
, and strive to create intergenerational opportunities for families and communities
. Our programs are open to anyone with an interest in the performing arts. Participants must be in the grade level or age group indicated for each program regardless of previous experience.

Most of our programs do not require any previous performing arts experience, just an interest in learning more about the performing arts. For multi-session programs, students must be able to attend all sessions and will be accepted based on availability and by the thoughtfulness of their interview or audition (if applicable). Incomplete or late registrations will not be accepted.
Thanks to the generosity of our funders, all of our programs are FREE to participants. There are no registration fees or tuition costs.
Unless otherwise indicated, programs take place at Citi Performing Arts Center, located at 270 Tremont Street in Boston. Directions are available here
. We are accessible via public transportation, and there is limited metered, on-street parking in the area, as well as several pay lots. We do not offer parking validation. Directions will be sent with registration confirmation.
We limit the number of participants to 15-30 people depending on the program. Once a program is fully enrolled, a waiting list will be started to accommodate any cancellations.
Professional trained Teaching Artists with expertise in their art form and teaching experience lead all of our programs. Many of our Teaching Artists work in the Boston area as professional actors, musicians, performers and college professors.
Near the applicable registration deadline, we review and process all registration forms. Once accepted in a program, participants receive a confirmation letter in the mail with more details and reminders about the program. If the program is already fully enrolled, participants will be notified and added to the waiting list.
Please call 617-532-1256 with any special accommodations. We welcome individuals with disabilities for all our programs and ask for a minimum of two weeks' notice for special accommodations or materials. Every effort will be made to accommodate participant's individual needs.
