Music Theater Troupes
This fall, we're shaking things up! We're upgrading our Music Theater Program to give students more flexibility and more opportunities to do what they do best.
Below you'll find details on our Troupe offerings including:

WHAT'S NEW THIS SEMESTER?
Students will be placed into group dance & acting classes based on ability (rather than age). We want to set up all of our students to get the most out of every one of our classes, and we think this change will help us get there.
We're adding an additional performance to both of our Center Stage shows. This is something our families have requested for years, but hasn't been possible until now!
We've added a Level 3 Showcase for our Level 3 students. This will be an opportunity for our top-tier students to create a showcase all their own, with a little help from a FAME instructor. This is definitely going to be a highlight every semester!
We've added a combined Dance & Acting Showcase that will feature students from all 3 levels, directed by our Acting & Dance instructors.
We've added extra weeks of our dance & acting classes.
We've masterminded a way to offer MORE show opportunities without totally burning everyone out. Students will now be eligible for 1-3 Troupe shows per semester-season. We know our students are busy, but we also know they're creative and dying to try new types of theater, like straight plays (that's theater talk for no song & dance) and holiday shows. See what we're thinking here.
Students in either Troupe will be eligible for additional 'featured' roles in both Troupes. What do we mean by that? Here's an example: we may choose a Center Stage show that calls for a 1st grade character. Rather than casting a 6th grader as a 1st grader, we may feature a 1st grader from Rising Stars. Think our production of "Newsies" a few years back.
Students/parents will have the option to opt-in/out of our mixed cast shows based on the show's content and/or rehearsal schedule.
In Rising Stars, students will discover their confidence and love for music and theater through weekly rehearsals and classes. Readers/non-readers alike are encouraged to join this class! Rising Stars students will also have the chance to be cast in our additional holiday & straight play shows.
Tuesdays & Thursdays 3:30-6pm
4 payments of $275
As a part of Center Stage, students will be trained in singing, acting, dancing, and rehearsal/performance skills, all while having fun and making new friends. Students in Center Stage will be cast in one of two mainstage shows per semester, and also have the chance to be cast in our additional holiday & straight play shows.
Monday-Thursday, times vary
4 payments of $425

All students must participate in placement auditions to join Troupe. These auditions will help staff place students in the appropriate group class levels, and to give our Troupe directors an idea of where they will fit into our upcoming season. Students who are not available for the above audition date will be asked to provide a virtual audition. However, it should be noted that casting preference will be given to students at in-person auditions.
Returning 'Kids Troupe'/Rising Stars families: we know these auditions are a little more structured than what we've done in the past. Rising Stars Director, Mrs. Sarah has you covered! She will be at auditions have her eye out for any nervous audition-ers.
Questions about auditions? Email our Troupe Program Director, Mrs. Adrianne here.
