Shows are not cast until November – students can still join after casting for ensemble roles.
Our programs are developed on a once a week format so students can participate without conflicting their busy schedules. The students attend rehearsals/classes in each area of study: MUSIC, DANCE and ACTING. Casting begins in early November when our production staff has the chance to see the students’ capabilities. Everyone gets a role as either a lead, supporting or ensemble member, which is a reflection of each individual’s abilities and helps them further develop his/her own style. Their strongest achievement will be their performance in a full-scale Broadway style show at the end of the season, which is accomplished through invigorating work and dedication.

WHY STUDY THE ARTS
Studies show that participation in the performing arts increases a child’s verbal ability, expressiveness, reasoning, and logical thinking. The performing arts teach children about people unlike themselves: other times, cultures, ideologies. They learn to see, hear and think differently, and gain valuable perspective on their own cultures and beliefs.
Studying the arts will stimulate and develop the imagination, as well as refine cognitive and creative skills. Performing arts encourages self-discipline, self-expression, calmness, and fulfillment. The confidence that your child will gain from the performing arts will positively affect every aspect of their life.
Performing arts, like any talent, must be nurtured and practiced consistently to ensure the best possible results. It is suggested that those interested in performing should continually participate in any school or community program available, such as drama, dance, chorus and band.
