Musical Theatre Companies

The companies are designed for students who want to be a part of a fun musical theatre experience! Auditions are optional and all levels of performers are invited to be a part of this show! In this ensemble-based show, every performer is in every song within their age group’s company, singing and dancing.  The show will include all three companies and will be performed with full lighting and sound. The rehearsal process will also include educational elements about the theatre and performance! A wonderful opportunity for any child or teen who wants to have fun and experience the world of musical theatre!
