2019 Summer Program

Play with A Broken Umbrella Theatre! and learn the building blocks of ensemble theatre-making.

Let your imagination run wild with members of New Haven’s award-winning theater troupe, A Broken Umbrella Theatre. For one week, we will bring stories to life through improvisation, movement, lights, sound and site-specific scenery. Special focus on ensemble creation – the art of making work together as a team. On the final day of camp, we will share our play-making process with friends and family.

A Broken Umbrella Theatre. is committed to enhancing the vitality of our community, supporting the creative growth of our ensemble, and presenting compelling theatrical events that are inspired by the unique history of New Haven, Connecticut – all with a commitment to aesthetic rigor. Each year 30 or more Connecticut arts professionals, affiliated with our ensemble, volunteer to research, write, design, act and produce original theatre inspired by New Haven's history and lore. Since 2009, we have enlivened unique and underutilized spaces, actively engaged a diverse group of non­ traditional and traditional theatre going audiences, and highlighted historical events and individuals from our city's past in original and unexpected ways.
