We are very excited to introduce you to our theater classes, which gives you the opportunity to learn about theater and acting from local theater directors and teachers. Sharpen your musical theater skills in Broadway Bound or join our Drama Club!  Students ages 6-10 will be challenged to stretch their imaginations and flex their acting muscles in age appropriate theatre activities specially developed for each class.


BROADWAY BOUND

Actors will spend the year exploring character, learning choreography, and proper singing technique under the direction of an expert musical theatre educator. Broadway Bound will allow each actor to deliver lines, sing, dance, and be part of a theatrical ensemble which builds stage presence and self-confidence.

Directors Laura Backley and Nick Foster are experienced music educators with backgrounds in musical theater direction. Both instructors share a passion for teaching and creating a life-long love of musical theater in children.
