After School Program
After School Program (ASP)
Registration night for Fall After School Program will be on Tuesday, August 22nd from 6:00-8:00pm. From that point onward parents can register youth for Fall ASP. A notice will be issued to schools in September, and students can register the first day of classes.
For over 20 years, the Chester Playhouse has been working with young people in the community to put on wonderful shows. Our After School Program (ASP), provides an opportunity for students too young for our Summer Theatre School program to explore the world of acting with a helping hand from our professionals. While learning the art of acting and the craft of theatre, students have the opportunity to experience working solo and as a part of a team and are encouraged to be physical and expressive in their work. First time performers and returning students are welcome.
Each ASP play is written and directed by Cynthia Myers.
“The After School Program actors shine with the joy of discovery and thrive with the storytelling and music.”
-Director/Writer Cynthia Myers
The program is held at the Chester District Elementary School and Chester Area Middle School and runs for a few hours between 2:00 PM and 5:00 PM, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, depending on the age group.
