In this condensed version of our popular summer program, young singer-actors will have a chance to design, write, and perform their own musical theatre production. Students will learn the basics of staging, script writing, dancing, acting, and singing while incorporating team building and creativity. Songs from musical theatre and pop repertoire will help participants hone their ear training, musical literacy, and vocal production skills, all with improvisation games and movement activities. The session culminates in a performance of the original musical for family and friends.
Need-based scholarships are available. Please visit our Forms and Policies page for more information.
