KIDS MUSICAL THEATRE (1st-5th Grade)

Our Kids Musical Theatre Program has been the core of Class Act since 1985. We enroll every Spring, Summer, and Fall; and cater to kids in 1st-5th grade. Each season the kids will audition for roles in multiple casts of a hit Junior Broadway Musical. Each kid will receive an age-appropriate main night role (lead or featured) and a secondary ensemble role. This double casting system will allow each performer the chance to perform in two shows each season.

New Additions To The Program - Fall 2022

 

Performance Weekend(s) Casting

Due to the growth of our program, we are streamlining the way we place our shows on performance weekends. Outside of religious and school conflicts, we can not accommodate other special requests. We ask that you be available for the selected dates (for your age group) for our casting purposes. This would be no different from a dance studio or sports team and it will allow our directors and casting team more flexibility to cast each kid exactly where they want them to be. In some special cases, a kid may be cast in a tween show, but this will be communicated to the families. 

See dates below.
