Musical Theatre

Musical Theatre instills a sense of self-esteem, teaches self-discipline and teamwork, and develops self-confidence in every child that gets the chance to get on stage. Our Musical Theatre Program will cultivate a sense of accomplishment and creativity among all students, offering diverse parts and roles for each child to explore and discover. Students will have the opportunity to identify and develop individual strengths in many areas including confidence, stage presence and theatricality, and skills in presentation, interpretation and character development.

Schedule:

  • Saturdays from 11:00am-12:00pm (ages 4-7)
  • Saturdays from 12:00-1:00pm (ages 8-12)
