A great fit for students looking for focused, fast-paced theatre training.  The pre-teen program introduces students to the joy of participating in a show.  Students work intensely with a director, choreographer and music director over the course of two weeks to perform a junior production of a Broadway show.  Broadway Junior musicals are condensed, author-approved versions of classic musicals.  Students attend daily classes where material from the show is used to teach them skills in areas of music, drama and dance.  Performances of a 60-minute Broadway Junior show are held at the end of the program.
