Springfield Little Theatre Presents: A Friend Like Me Summer Workshop

A Friend Like Me

Springfield Little Theatre, with the support of Camp Barnabas, is excited to offer A Friend Like Me, a four day musical theatre workshop created to provide access for children, youth, and young adults with special needs to a quality theatre education experience.

Participating young artists with special needs will be joined in class by their new Springfield Little Theatre “buddies,” teenagers and young adults who have applied to work with them side-by-side and guide them through each activity, including theatre games, music exploration, creative movement, poetry, art, and musical theatre performance.

Enrollment is limited to 32 participants, ages 8 and up, who will be divided into groupings of 8 during specialized periods of instruction.

A Friend Like Me “buddies” must be 14 and up, complete an application form, submit to a background check, purchase a camp t-shirt, and be available for the entirety of the camp.

This year’s workshop will feature an inspiring visit each day from a popular princess and other enchanting characters, and the experience will culminate with an 11:00 a.m. performance at the SLT Education Facility, 237 South Florence Ave. on Friday, May 31 for parents and friends.

Tuesday, May 28-Friday, 31, 8:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
Ages 8 and up

Tuition: $135

1 snack a day and a t-shirt included
