Musical Theater

Our Musical Theater program for Grades 2-8 is uniquely designed so that students work with a vocal director, acting coach, and choreographer all in one class. Rehearsals are high-energy and fun as students learn a show they will perform at the end of each 10-week term. Best of all, Musical Theater is open to anyone, from the seasoned performer to someone just trying it out for the first time!

Musical Theater offers 10-week fall and winter terms that meet for 2 hours each week. Spring term is 8 weeks with a one-hour acting class and/or a one- hour singing class each week.

Past terms have included songs and scenes from Wicked, Shrek, Lion King, Sound of Music, and many more of the favorite Broadway shows of all time.
