June 24 - July 26

SOCAT brings you a qualified, experienced teaching staff with fine-tuned knowledge, expert skills, and classroom professionalism in Theater, Music, Dance and Art that all adds up to a summer of fun. Students work in collaborative settings with a faculty comprised of NYS certified teachers who work in the arts and experienced NYC teaching artists.


Musical Theater Workshop
9am – 2pm

Musical Director: Alastair King

Rehearsal for Musical Theater production July 2012

In collaboration between students and faculty, SOCAT Musical Theater offers kids a unique experience to participate in all aspects of the theatrical experience. Working in small ensembles, students develop individual techniques in acting, movement, singing, set, and prop making. Under the skilled supervision of teaching faculty, and using the principles of story-theater and performance art, each age group develops a performance, which will be presented at the end of the 5-week session. Rather than choosing a few children to star in a few roles, the SOCAT’s process playfully challenges each member of the ensemble to be a star.


Studio Art Workshop
9am – 2pm

Art Director: Allison Meyers

SOCAT Studio Art includes work in 2D and 3D painting, drawing, and sculpture. Students are grouped appropriately by age and challenged to expand their individual creativity. At the conclusion of the session, students will display their artwork in an exhibit for family and friends.


Extended Day
2pm - 4 pm

Director: Eric Goldstein

SOCAT Extended Day gives students the opportunity to take a break from all their hard work and go for a supervised swim session at the South Orangetown Middle School pool. Students will be bused from Dominican College to the school. Students staying for extended day should be picked up at South Orangetown Middle School.

Both 5-week sessions conclude with a final production:

  • A Musical Theater production with original script, dance and music co-created and performed by SOCAT Theater participants
  • Art Gallery exhibit presented by the SOCAT Studio Artists

All students should bring a bag lunch from home,
as there will not be any cafeteria service.

Parents or guardians are responsible for drop-off & pick-up.
