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, supporting, or featured) and a secondary ensemble role. This double-casting system will allow each performer the chance to perform in two shows each season.
