Branford Parks &Shoreline Theatre Company started in the Spring
of 2018 as a discussion with The Branford Parks and
Recreation Department to try and fill a void in our community as
we felt more performing arts opportunities should be available
for people of all ages. Our first show, Hairspray, had a cast of 60 from
10 different towns ranging in age from 13-70.
We also offered a summer theatre camp experience for
2nd through 8th graders that concluded with performances
of Aladdin Jr. Due to the success of the summer theatre camp,
we then offered a Winter camp opportunity
with the production of Elf Jr. From the summer of 2018 to
the year our number of campers doubled, which allowed
us to have two completely separate casts for our productions
of Alice in Wonderland Jr.
Well, as they say, “The rest is history.” The CoVid-19 Pandemic
made us slow down and readjust. However, we celebrated our 5th Year Anniversary in January of 2023 with ‘You Can’t Stop The Beat’, a lookback at the past 14 shows we produced through songs and stories.
The community has been very supportive of us and we look forward to offering a wide array of shows with different sizes of cast members and immersive experiences for audiences in the future. We hope that Branford Parks & Recreation Shoreline Theatre Company continues to influence and inspire everyone that experiences a production with us whether it be onstage, behind the scenes or as a spectator.
Thank YOU for supporting THE ARTS!
