Summer Institute

Every summer Teatro Círculo engages more than 25 youngsters at risk from the Lower East Side in an intensive theatre training geared to develop their skills in all aspects of theater production; from acting to set, costume and lighting design, to how to operate a sound and lighting board to writing and directing. Ultimately we hope to help the young people involved develop an enriched sense of self and the value of team work. Teatro Círculo provides all the resources necessary for the project, including set materials, costumes, space, and the instructors who are professionals in the field.

Visiting School Program

This program brings to our theater public school students from all over the city offering them low priced matinee performances, in Spanish, of works related to their course of studies. Each performance is followed by a round-table discussion directed by bilingual university professors of theater and literature who are members of Teatro Cí­rculo. The purpose of our Visiting School Program is to enhance our youngsters, educational process by linking theatrical productions and thorough academic discussions with their school curriculums. Thus, we facilitate an experiential and intellectual approach to their education.
