READY TO BECOME A TRIPLE THREAT?
This 6 week in-person workshop will explore the world of musical theatre using the elements that create the “TRIPLE THREAT”: acting, singing, and dancing. Using an original script, choreography, and songs from Broadway’s most popular musicals, students will learn and rehearse a show that promotes self-confidence and helps them understand the importance of stage presence. They will also get the opportunity to experience what it’s like to work in an ensemble and stand in the spotlight.
At the end of the 6 weeks, the students will have the chance to perform their work in front of a live audience.
$125 for the entire 6 week program*
*Applies for both "Intro to Musical Theater Workshop" and "Musical Theater Workshop"
