What your children will be learning in the musical theater program:
Communication Skills

Many students find that theater helps them develop the confidence that’s essential to speaking clearly and effectively. Acting onstage teaches students how to be comfortable speaking in front of large audiences.

Motivation and Commitment

Being involved in theater productions and classes demands commitment and motivation. By example, we teach each other that success comes to those who are committed to the task at hand.

Concentration

Being on stage stresses concentration, and once you have learned that skill as an actor, it can be transferred to other activities.

Self-Confidence

Theater training teaches you confidence in yourself. Your accomplishments in theater show you that you can handle a variety of jobs, pressures, difficulties, and responsibilities.

Goal-Orientation

Many aspects of theater involve setting and achieving specific goals. Learning to be task-oriented and capable of finding practical ways to achieve goals.

ENJOYMENT!

The joy of watching an audience react to the work you have completed and the joy of working in a collaborative artistic environment with other students focused on the success of the performance. Most importantly, the work that we complete together in Theater at its core is founded on the concept of making this world a better place. We are bringing joy and meaning to people’s lives and prompting them to think about the human condition.
