Next Generation School of Theatre (Summer)

To Our Next Generation School Of Theatre Families:

After much careful consideration, the Hangar Theatre has decided to cancel any live gatherings for the 2020 summer season, and to move all artistic and educational programming to a virtual space. This difficult step has been taken to protect the health and well-being of all affiliated artists, staff, students and audiences in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

That said, we recognize how important it is for young people to connect with each other, now more than ever. We remain committed to providing top-notch artistic training for the next generation of theatre artists. Therefore, we are in the process of transforming all in-person offerings into virtual experiences that combine the joy of creation, the satisfaction of skill-building, and the delight of collaboration.

Our plan for the 2020 Next Generation School of Theatre program is to:

  1. Shift all in-person educational offerings to shorter, focused, online class sessions exploring a variety of topics appropriate for a range of ages. Prices will be adjusted to reflect the new format.

  2. Offer online performance-oriented classes that will allow for meaningful interaction with peers and instructors and a chance for family and friends to view the work that is created and rehearsed in class.

  3. If, at some point later in the summer, we are able to safely gather in person (according to state-issued and CDC guidelines) we will consider adding restricted enrollment classes to our schedule.

We will be posting our Virtual Next Gen Summer lineup soon–please check back for updates. In the meantime, send any questions or thoughts to

Stay well and healthy, and we hope to see you (virtually first, and eventually in person!) soon. We look forward to connecting with you.
