2024 Summer Program

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

A Broken Umbrella Theater is proud to team up with The Eli Whitney Museum this summer to present a one-of-a-kind experience. They will be offering a one-week theater camp for students interested in creating original devised work. Through the uses of improv, theater games, and a little bit of history, campers ( guided by members of A Broken Umbrella theater) will work to create original pieces inspired by New Haven Pizza! Mangia!!

This camp will collaborate with a costuming camp that will create original and custom costume pieces for an end-of-the-week exhibition.

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 theater 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 theater going audiences, and highlighted historical events and individuals from our city's past in original and unexpected ways.
