There is still time to register for Middlesex Community College’s College for Kids summer programs. These programs are designed to provide children with fun and challenging opportunities to explore careers, gain new knowledge, develop new skills, and boost self-confidence. Programs are offered for children ages 8 to 15 and run July 6 through Aug. 13 on the Bedford and Lowell campuses.

One of the most popular College for Kids programs is “Children’s Theater.” This program has become so popular that it is offered as the only three-week program. Participants learn all aspects of theater production and choose the roles they want to play, taking into account their own skills and interests. The program culminates in a student performance.

The program will be held 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 6 – 24, at Lowell High School’s Burgoyne Theater, 40 Page St., Lowell. This year, students will perform a production of “Shrek the Musical, Jr.”  Final productions are scheduled for July 24 and 25.
