Musical Theatre Production Summer Program for Grades 6-9
Why Take Musical Theatre Production
In this program designed for students in grades 6-9, you'll further develop your skills in acting, singing, and dancing. Your summer will culminate with you performing in a live, fully produced musical theatre production!
What You'll Learn
The Musical Theatre Production program is designed for students with musical theatre experience. You'll work with high-caliber instructors to develop the physicality, knowledge, and tools to be a successful musical theatre performer. You'll finish the summer with three performances of a musical theatre production with full technical and design support.
As a Musical Theatre student, you will:
- Improve your skills in acting, singing, and various dance styles
- Understand the collaborative nature of the theatre
- Apply acting techniques to the performance of a song
- Bring your character to life in a fully staged production
The summer program ends with a multi-performance run of a fully staged musical. The production enjoys full design and technical support throughout, with live accompaniment.
This might be an arts camp, but it's still camp! In addition to theatre rehearsals, you'll have the chance to explore the woods and swim, play field games, and learn cool skills like archery.
