Intermediate Musical Theatre
The Intermediate Musical Theatre Program is a year long performance class for students ages 11-14. This class builds a solid foundation in the musical theatre disciplines of singing, dancing & acting.
It expands and develops on the knowledge from the teachings of the Junior Musical Theatre Program while also inviting students new to musical theatre to experience all the excitement and satisfaction of preparing a production. The first half of the year is dedicated to building a strong team. Students focus on acting, singing and dancing technique in both individual and group oriented games and exercises. This technique term will lay the foundation for the rehearsal term. During this time students channel all their theory knowledge towards the rehearsal and performance of a 1-Act Musical as part of our yearly festival in June. Designed to encourage beginners and returning students an opportunity to flex their creative muscles, grow and develop as young artists, make new and long lasting friendships and experience the thrill of storytelling at its finest.

Q. Isn’t two or three hours too long for students this age, especially after school?
A. Because our classes are so engaging and are meant to meet students at a developmentally appropriate level, we haven’t yet had any issues with students finding the class to be too much to handle. Activities are divided between active movement games and more stationary discussion activities. The general feeling of the class is always monitored to ensure that all students are being challenged but not discouraged. With small class and casts sizes we are able to closely monitor how each student is managing the class. The 15 minute break gives students a chance to recharge and socialize with their classmates.
