The Junior High Music Theater Program draws students from all over the nation. It is a two-week residential program specifically designed for students who have an interest in the arts and want to cultivate their artistic talents. Our acclaimed program provides students with an exciting introduction to musical theater. 


Students will explore the foundations of musical theater through acting, singing and dancing under the guidance of our talented, caring and experienced staff. Students will be in rehearsals for the fully staged musical production for most of their day, but will also enjoy classes in dance, acting, and special topics related to music theater.

All students will perform in the fully-staged musical at the end of the session.


No audition is required to be admitted to the program (unless applying for financial aid). Acceptances will be made on a first applied basis. Applications received after sessions become full will be placed on a waiting list.

To apply, please send the $40 application fee and a completed summer registration form. Applicants should also submit a photo (school photo is fine) and a resume of any performance experience. It is fine if you have little or no previous experience.

Students who submit an application by January 20th, 2015 receive 15% off their entire tuition. Early application also provides financial aid consideration for qualified students. 


If a student wishes to be considered for financial aid they must audition - either by YouTube or by DVD submission. Junior high audition requirements are two musical theater songs of your choice to be sung with piano accompaniment. You may substitute an art, folk, or classical song for one of the selections. Applicants should be recorded live with piano accompaniment (no backing/karaoke tracks). Recordings of live stage performances/shows are not acceptable. Submissions can be uploaded to YouTube, or sent on DVD (mini DVDs, VHS, and audio tapes are not accepted). Financial aid applicants must fill out the financial aid section on the summer registration form and submit all requested documents. Please note that financial aid is limited and not guaranteed. Early application is suggested. Please see Summer Tuition and Policies for submission deadlines.
