Summer Theater

Youth Theatre with Music for Grades 2 to 8

Pakachoag’s youth theatre program is made possible in partnership with Emanuel Lutheran Church located in Worcester’s Quinsigamond Village region.  All rehearsals and shows take place at Emanuel’s fellowship hall.

As a full company production, regular rehearsal attendance is ideal.  This summer’s session provides more flexibility than school year sessions: more than four absences for this session will result in not being able to participate in the show.  Friday rehearsals on August 16th, August 23rd, and the Saturday call time (1 PM) on August 24th are mandatory.


All rehearsals and shows take place at Emanuel Lutheran Church’s fellowship hall.  Plenty of off-street parking is available.  Building entrance and hall are handicap accessible.
