A view that never disappoints-

Choppy harbor waters

Storm clouds clearing

Later that same afternoon

Do Your Children Have March School Vacation?

If so, have them join us for two action packed weeks at Gloucester Stage!

Harborlight will be spending two full weeks learning all there is to know about the world of theatre at Gloucester Stage Company. At the end of the two weeks they will perform an original show.  Thanks to the amazing team at Gloucester Stage and Harborlight’s Performing Arts Director, Katie Oberlander, students will have the opportunity to learn what it takes to pull off a professional production….from soup to nuts.

Earlier this week teams from both organization met to structure the week.   So many exciting components are in the works and the two-week session promises to be one that these students never forget.

Harborlight Players, grades 4-8

This two-week course takes students to Gloucester Stage Company (GSC) for an intensive experience in theatre production, on stage and backstage. In addition to acting, students participate in all aspects of production, including box office management, lighting and set design, auditions and casting, costumes and props. Actors, assistant directors, stage managers, designers, and marketing and sales are all part of what it takes to stage an original production, which is what the students do on the GSC stage as the culmination of their theatre experience.



Harborlight Montessori in Beverly is ecstatic to be debuting Experience Weeks this year.  For six weeks, one in February, two in March, one in April, and two in June, students (both enrolled at Harborlight and from elsewhere) can participate in rich, exciting, experiential, and fun Experience Weeks.

The two week collaboration with Gloucester Stage is just one example.  Students from other schools are invited to join us during February vacation, April vacation, and the last two weeks of June as well! See what is happening during your child’s school vacation!  Partnerships with Maritime Gloucester, Salem Sound Coastwatch, and much much more!
