Workshops

Hope Summer Repertory Theatre (HSRT) was originally founded on the principle of producing professional theatre with an educational element.

This year we are excited to welcome you to join in a series of workshops and masterclasses. From creating a character with Curious George to fine-tuning your audition technique with Broadway actress Laurie Veldheer, these workshops offer excellent opportunities aimed at all ages in the community.

All Workshops conclude with a family and friends session and include a ticket to a Schoolhouse Rock or Annie performance.

Sign up for 2017 workshops!
