TWEEN MUSICAL THEATRE (6th-8th Grade)
Our Musical Theatre Program has been the core of Class Act since 1985. We enroll every Spring, Summer, and Fall; and cater to kids in 6th-8th grade. Each season the tweens will audition for roles in multiple casts of a hit Broadway Musical. Each tween will receive a 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.
