Extended Day at The Drama-Play Connection

New this Summer!
A full Drama-Film-Acting Curriculum
open to the community.


Our extended day program gives our students an opportunity to learn new skills and enjoy a variety of activities.   Each workshop is led by an instructor with special knowledge or expertise of the subject matter. 

Each summer, we adapt the workshop schedule to the choices of the students attending.    Here is a list of past workshops offered at The Drama-Play Connection!

We are thrilled to have fencing expert, Cesar Morales, of the International Fencing Club in Chestnut Hill return to DPC this summer.  Fencing is a classic sport that teaches body in space, coordination, and timing.
