For over 33 years the Town Players of New Canaan has sponsored a full theatre program for young people at the Powerhouse Performing Arts Center in Waveny Park.

Workshops include pantomime, improvisation, theatre games and scene work, with a staged performance for friends and family at the end of each session. Of the three sessions that run yearly, two are weekly after school sessions, and one is a three week summer camp.  All activities are on the stage of our 115-seat working theatre.
