TEEN MUSICAL THEATRE (8th grade +)

Our Teen Musical Theatre Program is now enrolling for its Spring production of 2024. This program is catered to 8th grade+ students who love to perform. The teen program is competitive and will revolve around more difficult choreography, character development, and vocal training. All of the teen performers will be encouraged to continue to cultivate their craft on stage. Everyone who enrolls will get to participate in the production.
