Acting, Singing for Musicals, Music Theatre: Child/Youth classes

December 31, 2018 - 1:00 am

Register now for our WINTER sessions. We offer acting classes for ages 6 to adult, as well as specialty courses:

Musical Theatre Performance – Mary Poppins JR – for ages 9-18

1-2 times per week from Jan. 12-Mar 30, increasing to 3-4 times per week until May 1, when classes will be 4-5 times per week. We tend to rehearse early evenings on week nights. Long weekends are always off.

The time commitment for the course is about 2-6 hours per week, until two weeks before opening, when it increases to 8 (or more) hours per week. Classes are held in the early evenings at our studio in St. Andrew’s Presbyterian church. Performances will take place in the Grand Theatre in the Baby Grand. Performances are the weeks of May 21 – Jun2 2, 2019.

We choose shows that have appeal to young people and that support large casts, and role sharing. Every student who enrols in the class is guaranteed a place on stage as an actor in the production. There are no prerequisites for enrolment – if you have an interest, we will train you! When possible, we share roles so that more students get a taste of being both chorus and a named role. The class runs like a production, and the show is performed ove r a two-week run for a paying audience in a proper theatre, with lights, sound, set, costumes – the works!

Over the years, our musical theatre students have performed Sweeney Todd, Willy Wonka, Aladdin, Little Red Riding Hood, Snowdrops for Katya, Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Into the Woods JR, Shrek JR and James and the Giant Peach JR. The process of rehearsing a show helps to create bonds that last a lifetime, and our students and their families are proud of the results of their hard work.
