The North Shore Folklore Theatre Company is thrilled announce the 4th season of our Summer Stock Theatre Club!


“Not every child is a ‘camp kid,’ but in a club, everyone belongs.”

– Henry Allen

The North Shore Folklore Theatre Company is thrilled announce the 4th season of our Summer Stock Theatre Club!

The Summer Stock Theatre Club is a one-of-a-kind program in which children (ages 7-13) use the backdrop of Cape Ann as the inspiration for an original play which they will write, design, build and perform for their families and friends! Each two-week session will have a special theme based on local history, legend and mythology. A significant amount of time is spent outdoors in fresh air and surrounded by nature.

This summer, the North Shore Folklore Theatre Company spreads our wings all over Cape Ann and beyond! We are proud to announce our partnerships with the Cuvilly Arts and Earth Center in Ipswich, Soul Cove Center for the Arts in Manchester, the Lanesville Community Center in Lanesville, and The Sawyer Free Library in Downtown Gloucester.
