My daughter loved having a small group and making friends with other students with similar interests. She loved getting to be a part of higher quality production than she's been able to be a part of with community theaters in the area.

What To Expect

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.
