Musical Theatre Workshops
Introduction to Musical Theatre for students 5 to 13 years old
Winter/Spring 2018: “SING” Musical Theatre Workshop NOW REGISTERING!
This Winter/Spring 2018 Musical Theatre Workshop, students will experience "SING"!
We will utilize an original script with a great message to bring together the familiar characters and unforgettable songs from the hit movie! This spin on the story will give everyone the opportunity to perform to their favorite songs including "I'm Still Standing", "Set It All Free", and "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing"!
Musical Theater Workshops build skills in singing on key, understanding tempos, acting with full expression & projection, proper breathing and polishing movement as a group. Students will also develop and build improvisational skills through theatre games.
Musical Theatre incorporates acting, singing and dancing, but cannot take the place of a dance class. Musical Theatre students need to be enrolled in a dance class, as Musical Theatre Workshop time is used to set and rehearse choreography, it does not teach dance technique.
Two annual musical theatre workshops are offered each year and culminate in a professional children’s theatre performance in our Black Box Theatre at our Scripps Ranch Location. Faculty from our Dance and Music Departments, provide choreography and vocal coaching for our young actors and actresses. MT2 Workshops are great for 3-6th graders and MT1 provides a perfect introduction for K-2nd!
This Summer, join us for "Musical Theatre Dance Camps!"!
MT1: Front Row Center
This class teaches the fundamentals necessary to build a strong foundation. At the end of each semester, students will prepare a themed Informal Presentation.
MT2: Broadway Bound
This combination Acting and Singing/Dancing class teaches students techniques for stage acting as well as working as an ensemble. Students will have a more focused exposure the three elements of singing, acting and dancing to prepare a musical theatre “Best Of” show presentation in our Black Box Theatre. This level is our current MT Workshop Classes.
Intro to Musical Theatre Dance (Ages 7 and Up)- This technique class encourages students to learn the fundamental dance vocabulary necessary for Musical Theatre style dancing. We will be working with basic choreography, flexibility, and developing muscle memory for these movements.
