The Winchester Cooperative Theatre for Children was founded in 1979 to provide elementary school children with the opportunity to participate in a comprehensive theatrical experience. In 1990 the program expanded to include a middle school production.

We believe that children deserve professionalism in their exposure to theatre. Our staff consists of accomplished dramatic coaches, musicians, choreographers, stage, costume and lighting designers who support the children as they develop to their fullest potential.

Throughout their experience, the children are encouraged to reach a level of performance far beyond that which is typically expected of their age group. We are dedicated to helping children feel good about themselves, gain poise, and reach their own personal level of excellence.

The Winchester Cooperative Theatre is a non-profit organization which is financially supported by tuitions, ticket revenues and donations to the: Friends of the Cooperative Theatre.

Senior Cooperative Theatre

This program offers Winchester middle school children the unique opportunity to take part in the staging and production of a full length Broadway musical. The material is demanding and requires a high level of commitment and mutual cooperation. Auditions for the November production are held early in September.

Children's Cooperative Theatre

This spring production has become a tradition in Winchester. Highly competitive auditions for children in grades four through six are held in December and require an aptitude in drama, music and dance. Those accepted participate in a rigorous rehearsal process, culminating in a professionally staged, double cast, musical adaptation presented at the end of March.

Cooperative Summer Drama Camp

The summer session welcomes all interested children from Winchester and the surrounding communities to experience the excitement of theatre in a non-threatening and relaxed atmosphere. The five week non-audition program provides instruction in a broad spectrum of theatre education through participation in skits, monologues, improvisation, music and dance. A complete musical production in the spirit of the spring show is the grand finale to Summer Camp.

Drama Classes

Throughout the year, classes are offered in various aspects of the theatre. Character development, timing and voice projection are emphasized and individual attention is given to each young actor.
