One session: July 10-14, 2017
Guest Broadway performers lead teens in a weeklong series of master classes on the “triple threat” skills of musical theater – acting, dancing and singing. Participants sharpen their performance skills, gain knowledge about the auditioning and casting process, receive professional headshots, and learn about the Broadway industry from working professionals. The week culminates in a showcase for family and friends. Auditions are not required, although previous theater training or experience is necessary.
