Junior Musical Theatre
Students receive training in singing, dancing, and acting while rehearsing a musical theatre production to be presented in June of each year.
The first semester (September-December) is dedicated solely to skill building, allowing students to gain confidence and skills to ensure their success in the second semester (January-June). Second semester is devoted entirely to rehearsal and production. Costumes are built, props are made, set is constructed and the show is designed with professional quality in mind and scaled to meet the abilities of our performers. All experience levels are welcome and with our small class size we can help each student reach their fullest potential over the course of the year.

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.
