Was your child born to perform? This five-day program lets theater enthusiasts between the ages of 12 and 14 explore the world of musical theater in a fun and nurturing environment where everyone gets to perform. Students will be placed in a daily rotation of classes in music, dance, and acting as well as group activities, afternoon rehearsals, and a group performance at the end of the week.
Led by Boston Conservatory at Berklee faculty members, this program is the perfect introduction for students who have always wanted to give theater a try, as well as those who have already gotten started and wish to advance their craft. No prior theater experience is necessary.
Preparation and Placement
Students should wear movement-friendly clothing (loose shorts and long tee-shirts are fine), including sneakers or flat dance shoes (no flip-flops or sandals). If weather permits, classes may be held outside. Since the air temperature inside the studios may vary, students should dress in layers so that they may adjust to be as comfortable as possible.
At the beginning of the program, students will be given a folder in which to hold their script and should bring their folder to the Conservatory each day. Students are expected to attend all days for the duration of the session.
Below is a list of items students should be prepared to bring:
- Refillable water bottle
- Dance bag with all of the student's dance shoes and extra clothes
- Colored pencils and a sharpener
- Healthy snacks
Though not required, students are permitted to bring laptops, computers, tablets, etc. Wireless internet and electrical outlet plugs are provided throughout the campus. Please keep in mind that it is the student’s responsibility to keep their items safe. Boston Conservatory at Berklee is not responsible for the loss of these items.
Each day, students will engage in a variety of fun and inclusive exercises and lessons that will help them develop foundational skills to become collaborative musical theater performers. Specifically, students will explore the areas of acting, singing, dancing, and playwriting within a safe learning environment. All activities are hands-on, and all students are expected to participate fully. Each day will have an energetic “camp-like” feel, including warmups and games, outdoor time (weather permitting), and group discussions, among other things.
The program’s faculty is composed of esteemed Boston Conservatory faculty and alumni with extensive knowledge and experience working with students in this age range. All of them bring the highest musical and educational standards to the classroom in an enjoyable and engaging environment, making this program truly exceptional.
Instructors for 2019 Day Sessions: Musical Theater will be announced this spring.
