Musical Theatre Companies

The Musical Theatre 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!

Students perform in the following groups:

  • Early Childhood Junior Company – PreK3-5
  • Early Elementary Junior Company – Kindergarten-Grade 1
  • Middle Elementary Company – Grades 2-3
  • Late Elementary Company – Grades 4-5
  • Middle School Company – Grades 6-8

High School students are invited to join us for “The Sound of Music!”  High schoolers need not audition to be part of the ensemble but must audition for featured roles.  Click here to find out more information about The Sound of Music!

The Musical Theatre Companies rehearse on a Spring and Fall semester schedule with two performances at the culmination of each semester.

Registration for the Musical Theatre Companies is open through Monday, September 9th, although students who desire a solo or speaking role are encouraged to attend auditions on Thursday, January 9, Friday, January 10 or Saturday, January 11.  Students may also audition for the Youth Musical Theatre Troupe’s production of The Sound of Music at the same time.
