MIDDLETOWN – Winter Performing Arts classes for ages 3 to 20 will be held at the Oddfellows Playhouse Youth Theater at 128 Washington St. starting early next month.

The following courses last eight weeks: Writing Plays, The Embodied Actor and Visual Art Explorations. Saturday Circrobatics classes start January 8. Technical theater and design classes start on January 11. All other classes begin the week of Jan. 10, according to a press release.

The Junior Repertory Company and Circophony Teen Circus will be rehearsing productions this winter. Masking is required and the performance venue follows all federal and state safety guidelines, he said.


Oddbridge’s Extended Day Program will be available throughout the 2021-2022 school year, allowing Middletown Public School students to catch a bus direct from school to Oddfellows – in time for a snack, homework and fun before classes start, according to the press release.
