Description and Registration


KIDS ON STAGE focuses around the three disciplines of music, drama and the arts. Children will be introduced to theatre through creative play. Exercises and games will focus on acting through storytelling, creating a character, expressing a feeling, music, and movement. A craft and story will often be included. By the end of the class, students should be using their bodies and voices to start to create characters. Though the emphasis of the class will be on developing skills and not on a final performance, family and friends are invited to the last class to see students present scenes. Students will be split throughout the day within an effort to maximize ability levels.

All students enrolled in Session 1 of KIDS ON STAGE receive free entrance to the Musical Theatre Preparatory Program Showcase on Friday, July 21st.

Students may participate in short adaptations of: Frozen, 101 Dalmatians, Aladdin, Moana and more!

Description and Registration

Description: This summer program gives older elementary and middle school students instruction in acting, dance, and music. Each day, students will have a schedule of classes and rehearsals. Guest artists will also be brought in to teach students master classes in special topics. There will be opportunities for instruction both in small groups and as an entire ensemble.

The emphasis of the program is on developing strong performance skills. As part of that goal, each student will be featured in a final performance as a singer, actor, and dancer. Students will also have opportunities to develop their own pieces during daily supervised rehearsals and will have a chance to perform their own "creative projects" for the rest of the students in the program each Friday.
