How to Enroll

  2. Make your tuition payment by June 1.* All programs have limited capacity, so be sure to complete your full tuition payment to reserve your space in the program.

*Please note: This program has limited capacity. Submission of registration materials alone does not guarantee participation in the program. You will secure your spot by paying in full.


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, and group discussions, among other things.
