Middle School and High school performers will have an opportunity to perform together, but take part in their own grade level break out sessions. The academy will run both groups simultaneously while focusing on areas of growth in their respective grade levels.
This academy will:
- Allow the participants a chance to musically perform as a group member
- Develop individualized skills in theatrical movement and expression
- Improve performance audition skills and assist in the preparation of a theatrical resume, headshot, and audition piece
Every student must be able to commit to all the classes, rehearsals and performances.
This is an important element to teaching young artists about the commitment and discipline that is necessary to be successful at one’s craft. We hope you will take full advantage of this academy for your students and spread the word to everyone!
It is important to note that those who participate in the summer academy are not guaranteed a solo opportunity. Those individual solo opportunities are all cast by audition and are chosen at the discretion of the program directors.
The cost of the camp is $165. However, we believe that the performing arts are for everyone who has the passion and dream to perform. If finances are an issue, we do have limited scholarships available.
Please feel free to contact me if you have questions. I will be coordinating the Children’s Theatre Academy led by our two directors. I am eager to meet you in person.
