Musical Theatre Program

July 22nd — July 29th
2018


The Musical Theatre program provides a quality learning experience for students ages 13-19. Participants will receive instruction in acting, voice, dance, and additional curriculum related to musical theatre. Faculty and staff are established performing artists who regularly work in regional and professional theatre companies and serve as university professors. In addition to the musical production of Disney's High School Musical, students will have the opportunity to perform on student recitals, building self-confidence skills. Vocal soloists will be accompanied and coached by collaborative artists extensively trained in musical theatre repertoire. The musical theatre show will be fully staged, costumed, and produced with the support and talents of a technical crew and instrumental ensemble. The musical theatre production of High School Musical will be open to the public, and will be cast through competitive audition: a limited number of students will be accepted, providing individualized and personalized instruction and increased performance options.
