Musical Theater Program


You are here

Registration is almost full; if you are interested in enrolling please contact Heather at hbalchunas@somervillema.gov  to inquire if space is still available.  We will track these final requests/slots.     

This year's musical will be Alice in Wonderland Jr.

If your child loves to act, loves to sing, or in general is a performing goof ball, this summer program may be for them. 

Since this has become a highly popular summer program, we are thrilled to be continuing our four-week, full day, summer program focused on musical theater. The program will be held in the wonderful Arts at the Armory and take place from 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.   Drop off begins at 8:30; pick up no later than 5:00 p.m.

This program will have four staff and a maximum of 40 youth ages 8 to 13. 

We are fortunate to have our lead staff return: 

Rachel Leigh Roccoberton has continuously worked in non-profit arts as an administrator, teacher, director, and choreographer. She currently works as Creative Programs Manager at the Dance Complex. She annually works at the National Puppetry Conference at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre Center as a Production Manager. Her other full-time job is as Mommy to her fabulous 5 year old executive assistant.

Anastasia Maryn Elliott is thrilled to be returning to Somerville Arts Council as our musical director this summer. With over 20 years of piano experience, she has music directed for Madhatter’s Theatre Company, in CT, performed as keys 2 at the Ivoryton Playhouse pit band for Hairspray, and music directed at least six productions during her four years at Connecticut College. She moved to MA last June. Currently, she performs in pits, music directs in community theaters in the area, is choral director at Waldorf High School of MA Bay, and music director for the musical production at Belmont High School.
