Registration opens for Youth Department’s Broadway Cabaret Workshops

Registration is now open for the Broadway Cabaret Workshop, directed by Brett Boles and sponsored by the Trumbull Youth Department. Join us for an exciting new six-week Broadway Cabaret Workshop. This program is available to students in grades 8-12 and will culminate in an evening cabaret.

Each week students will learn and practice core performance techniques in preparation for a final showcase. The performance will feature some solos, duets, trios, and group numbers. The goal is to let everyone shine together and to create a memorable learning experience for students to carry with them into the future, and to learn skills they can use both on stage, and in their lives.

Workshops take place Tuesday evenings at Trumbull High School, Oct. 8-Nov. 5, from 6:30-9:30 p.m., with a final showcase on Nov. 9.

Detailed information and registration forms may be found on-line at and at the Recreation Department, located across from Town Hall, 5892 Main St. Register in-person or reserve a place in the workshop by emailing If you have questions, contact the Youth Department 203-452-5032.

Fee: $125 for residents and $150 for non-residents.
