THEATER ARTS CLASSES
A wide variety of core classes in drama, voice, dance, and specialty training are offered each semester. Each class lasts for two-hours and runs for 9 weeks. During the final class week, a ten minute Showcase of what they accomplished during the semester is presented by each class for the other students as well as family and friends. Every student participates in the showcase and has a chance to perform! Students enrolled in classes are then eligible to audition for the current main-stage production.
Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most fantastic stories, Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach Jr. is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale. When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach which promptly rolls into the ocean and launches him on a journey of enormous proportions. Throughout his adventures, James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, disagreements, and even a shark attack! Featuring a wickedly tuneful score by Academy Award-winning songwriting team Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land), this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.
The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments. Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to 1950's New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the American "Jets" and the Puerto Rican "Sharks." Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.
