Summer Classes

Summer is an exciting time at ArtWorks Academy! This summer we have a variety of arts classes available for 2-18 year olds. All classes with grade requirements are based on the grade the student will be in during the 2021-2022 school year. Enrollment in classes with age requirements should be determined based on how old your child will be by the first day of class.

A $20.00 non-refundable deposit is due upon enrollment to hold your child’s spot. The session charge listed, once you enroll, is your remaining balance. The balance is due by the first day of the class. Students enrolling in two or more camps or classes will receive a 10% discount off of each camp or class. Families will receive a sibling discount of 10% for each additional family member enrolled.

Our six-week summer session runs from June 28-August 5, 2021.

Curtains: School Edition

This summer we will be producing Curtains: School Edition with 8th-12th grade students and 2021 grads.  It is audition only, meaning you must audition to be cast and we will select those we feel will be the best fit for the production.  Auditions will be June 24 and 25 (see details below) and rehearsals begin June 28.  If you will be out of town during auditions, please contact us in advance, so we can arrange another audition time for you.  

It’s the brassy, bright, and promising year of 1959. Boston’s Colonial Theatre is host to the opening night performance of a new musical. When the leading lady mysteriously dies on stage the entire cast & crew are suspects. Enter a local detective, who just happens to be a musical theatre fan! Packed with glorious tunes and a witty, charming script filled with delightful characters, CURTAINS is a hilarious journey for both performers and the audience.

Auditions:  Vocal auditions will be on Thursday, June 24 at 4:00 pm or 6:00 pm at ArtWorks Academy.  You will sign up to audition during one of those times. Those auditioning should prepare one song from a musical, which reflects the style of the show. It should be 16-32 bars in length. We will not have an accompanist for this audition, so students will need to bring recorded accompaniment. They should also come prepared for a dance audition. The dance will be taught to them at auditions. Again, if you want to audition, but know you will be out of town that week, please let us know in advance and we will schedule a different time for you to audition. You can call (405) 397-1824 or email Katie Morris, Director of Music, at If you don’t hear back within 24 hours, please try again, as we are very busy with multiple other shows and we don’t want to miss your email or call.

As stated above, you will need to select a time and sign up to audition.  If you are planning to also audition for Musical Theatre Company, please sign up for both auditions.  You will use the same song to audition for both and do not need to audition twice, but we need to know who is auditioning for each.  So, if you plan to audition at 4:00 pm, for instance, please register for the MTC audition and Curtains audition that are scheduled for 4:00 pm (if you plan to audition for both).
