Musical Theatre and Drama

About Our Classes

Performers of all ages can gain experience acting, dancing, and singing in a positive environment where participation is encouraged and all skill levels are welcome. There is no audition required to join any of our theatre courses!

Our workshops are a great way for emerging artists to dive deep into a specific topic of interest. They also offer engaging introductions to a variety of topics of interest in the theatre world from writing to performing.

We accept new students in our musical theatre and drama programs in September. If all classes have spot available, we will have another enrollment period in January to fill the vacancies. We recommend registering in September if your child is interested as we may not always open up additional classes and spots could be limited in January!

Most courses below have performances twice a year. Our annual Musical Theatre Showcases are January 17-21, 2023 and May 16-20, 2023 (exact performance dates for each group will be determined after September when group classes have been finalized). Showtime class performances are in December and May annually. You can find more information about upcoming performances posted on our website here: Performances & Events.

Please Note: if your child is interested in singing but not dancing/acting, we have Private Lessons available in Musical Theatre in our Voice Department or we have Youth & Teen Choir programs. More class information can be found in our online registration system or by clicking on the course links below. Browse all of our registration options.

Advanced Glee

Advancing skills from our Senior Glee program, students who have had some previous experience and new aspiring performers can join us for an exploration of more advanced technique and more mature musicals.

Broadway Genius

Create a short musical theatre production from beginning to end with your classmates and under the guidance of our musical theatre instructor. No previous experiencing writing scripts or music is necessary to join! Students who joined our modified Senior Glee program in 2021-22 where students helped to write scripts and scene, will find this class a similar experience.

Mini & Junior Glee

Use this entry level class to learn about the music and dance pieces that go into musical theatre productions without rehearsing a whole play. We sing pop, rock, jazz, and music from musicals. Mini Glee is for ages 4-5 and Junior Glee is designed for ages 6-8. These courses are taught by Fallon Hantelman-Stewart.

Senior Glee

In this next step up from our Mini & Junior Glee, become a triple threat and dance, sing, AND act to create a show big enough for the stages on Broadway. These classes are instructed by Karen Rose (Saturdays) and all other days of the week, instructors are to be determined.

Showtime

This performance-based class stages one act plays each term under the direction of Vanessa Nezamloo. No audition required to join. Showtime Junior is for ages 10-12 and Showtime Senior is for ages 13-16. Both classes run on Monday nights one after the other.

Theatre Workshops for Youth

Under the expert guidance of our instructor Karen Rose, students will be able to learn new skills that will apply to any performance. Each Theatre Workshop covers a new topic that will prepare aspiring actors for what they will encounter in their theatre career. Theatre Workshops are for youth (ages 10-16). You can join for just one month or come to them all; these are one time courses, so, registration in previous workshops is NOT required in order to join the next workshop. Workshops are available once a month for 2 hours on Saturdays.
