Join us in fall 2020 for a dynamic NEW program that incorporates all the things you love about Freelance: creativity, inclusion, and community! Older students will explore – or be introduced to – favorite songs and scenes from the Freelance library to rehearse and perform.
Rehearsals will be virtual, with hopes for some small, in-person meetings as state and local safety precautions allow.
Let’s see our students shine! Come enjoy this exciting and fun master class.
For ages 12 – 16. Rehearsals on Zoom will take place on Thursdays, 4:00-5:30pm. Director: Mary Torpey; Music Director: Cooper Evello. For more information, email Mary at email@example.com.
The Freelance Players engages youth in the creation and performance of original musical theater for audiences of all ages while fostering imagination, self-expression, empathy, and confidence in young people.
Through six performance Troupes across Greater Boston and story theater classes for younger children, the Freelance Players promotes community by building bridges across ethnic, geographic and socio-economic boundaries. Each Troupe produces two original musicals a year which are performed around the community, many free of charge as a public service.
The Freelance Players Troupes are proud to be a member of Massachusetts Cultural Council’s EBT for Culture program.
Spring 2020 was a Freelance season like no other. We achieved what sometimes seemed like the impossible: we successfully adapted ALL SIX of our Troupes’ live musical-theater productions to the screen!
When Covid-19 prompted school closures in March, we acted fast. We moved our rehearsals online without skipping a beat. Hear from one of our Freelance families about their experience this spring.
We embraced this unforeseen opportunity to innovate new ways of showcasing our talented students, including five video-theater productions and one final production, by our Jamaica Plain Troupe, that was performed entirely live on Youtube, complete with a virtual playbill. Watch the whole season here.
“It’s been wonderful! Thanks to your entire team for rising to the challenge and creating a novel and enriching experience for our children.” — Freelance parent, spring 2020
