Literacy and Arts Academy Accepting Enrollment
Kids perform at the Summer Arts Academy at the Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center.

The Academy for Literacy through the Arts and the Claremont Community School of Music invite children and youth between the ages of 8 and 15 to attend this fun-filled workshop. Participants will develop confidence and an appreciation for theater as they learn how to work with others in a musical theater production.

The application deadline is Dec. 19.

The workshops will take place for eight Fridays, beginning Jan. 23, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center, 300 W. Second St., Pomona. Space is limited to 30 students. The cost of the workshop is $75. Financial need-based scholarships are available.

The class will be taught by Claremont Community School of Music faculty Barbara Durost.

Students will perform in a production open to the public on Friday, March 13, in the Downtown Center Theatre.

This workshop is made possible by the generous support of Union Pacific Foundation through a grant received by the Claremont Community School of Music.
