Musical Theater Classes

 

Does your child love being the center of attention? Do they love to sing and act? Are they shy but want to make new friends and learn more about being on a stage? Then our Musical Theater classes will be a great fit for them!

Over the past 15 years, the students in our Musical Theater programs have performed over 100 performances for our community.  Our students range in age from 4-18, and we have many students that have been a part of our program and are now continuing their theater training in community theaters, landing leads in their Middle and High School productions, and continuing their theater education at the college level.

As part of our program, students are taught all aspects of being a part of a full musical theater production.  In the beginning of the session we take them through the audition process so they know what may be expected of them when they not only audition for us, but for other theater opportunities.  They are then cast in a role in our current production, and learn theater terminology, acting skills, characterization, and even Improv techniques that will be helpful for them in their performance.  Along with acting, children also learn choreography for musical numbers that are crowd pleasing and FUN! Most important of all, by participating in our program our students learn the importance of working as a team as well as build their own self-confidence along the way to help them blossom into the person they were born to be!
