Show Stoppers

Queens Theatre's Summer Musical Theatre Program for Kids

About Show Stoppers

Registration for the Summer 2024 sessions of Queens Theatre's Summer Musical Theatre program opens on March 1!

Rising young stars will create and perform an original pocket-sized musical play in just two weeks at Show Stoppers! Our program takes students through the entire of process of creating a musical play from auditions to writing and rehearsing, culminating in a performance on our main stage in the Claire Shulman Theater. Working with our professional and dynamic teaching artists, students will engage their imaginations, study the process of theatre and work together as an ensemble to put on a production of their own design during this exciting and comprehensive summer experience.

Show Stoppers is open to all kids – no experience in the performing arts is needed to join in the fun. Acceptance into the program is on a first come-first served basis. Auditions for roles will take place once the play is written.

Space is limited, so claim your spot early!
