Classes

Musical Theatre Production

Our Musical Theatre Workshop is a 16-week program that takes the student from audition to performance. The class is structured to mirror the way in which a professional play is rehearsed. The audition serves as a tool for learning and allows us to cast the show while emphasizing individual talents. During rehearsals, the students work on vocal skills such as projection, diction and breath support as well as singing, characterization and dance choreography. At the end of our 16-week program, students perform in a professional theatre space with professional sets, costumes, lighting and production crews. (That is what makes this experience the “real deal”!)

Auditions are for placement, but there is a place for EVERYONE!

Open to young performers ages 7-18. An adult must accompany each performer to the audition.

What to Expect for the Student:

Wear clothes you can move in and closed toe shoes (no Uggs, please)
Your picture will be taken for audition purposes only
You will learn a dance combination, you may be asked to read from the script and you will sing a song taught at the audition.

What to Expect for the Parents:

Please arrive ready to fill out all registration forms which include information about clothing sizes, shoe sizes and allergies
Please arrive with cash, check or credit card (made payable to MZStageworks. Credit cards have a 3% fee) to pay for the remainder of the semester
Make plans to stay for a brief parent’s meeting (usually about 15 minutes) beginning as soon as the audition begins. All fees are DUE at the audition!
