Annual Performance

Musical Theatre Production

Who doesn’t love a good musical!??!

Each year our Level 4/5 musical theatre performers have the opportunity to perform a tribute/adaptation of a full musical!  Our senior-level students learn about interesting, insightful, thought-provoking shows/materials from the canon of ‘classic’ and contemporary musical theatre repertoire. 

We adapt pieces to create a fairly balanced training and performance-opportunity for every student. Our training consists of in-studio skill-development (singing, dancing and acting), fluency in the history and tradition of musicals, and performance-oriented rehearsal.  

Each year is something new and vital and we twist and turn the materials, design and casting based on the sensibilities and goals of our students.  We try to match themes to what our students are experiencing in today’s world.   A variety of materials are introduced and our students develop skills in all areas of MT performance, working through solos, duets, trios and full ensemble pieces, all prepping to high on-stage performance standards.  

We also invite Level 3/4 classes to do ‘opening acts’ for the senior musical, so they see what they’re working towards through their own training!  Performing for an audience is critical to help young performers cement their learning and training, and the show each spring is always fantastic!

Season Overview & Student Feedback

  • Our Season runs from mid-Sept to end of May with weekly classes for each program.
  • The program Levels progress from primary through senior, introducing or enhancing the various components of the discipline and program. Each Level covers a 3 to 4 yr age range.  Depending on age, experience, and when they begin with us, a student could be in the same Level for 1 to 3 seasons.  Students learn how to function as both leaders and followers, experiencing the range of responsibilities and learning opportunities associated with being in a class with a variety of ages, personalities and types of learners.
  • As students progress each season and also through the Levels, they build their personal and performer’s toolkit with more in-depth advanced learning through various teaching tools, focused on skill acquisition, technical development, and practical performance application.  As the Level increases, the in-studio class-time lengthens and the expectations increase with more or lengthier materials, more ‘mature’ but still age-appropriate content, and more advanced learning tools requiring increasingly more at-home preparation time between classes.  The Level 3, 4 and 5 programs may also include more shows/performances/filming opportunities.
  • Each class and student is provided with a detailed Course Curriculum Outline at the beginning of the season outlining all performance or filming requirements and specific curriculum goals, learning tools and teaching strategies ~ a roadmap of where and how we’ll take the class through the season! We discuss specific goals with each student, at the start, at the mid-way point and at the end of the season so we always know what we’re working towards!  And each student receives a personalized Progress Report at the end of each season celebrating their amazing achievements and growth, setting intentions for their continued development, and recommending next steps, all based on the student’s own goals and interests for their training and development.
