Overview

The Musical Theatre Concentration in Theatre Arts prepares students for the necessary triple-threat of acting, singing, and dancing.  Along with the acting training, musical theatre students participate in private, one-on-one singing lessons every semester, and dance classes every semester in Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Modern, Hip-Hop, and Theatrical Dancing. Students also study singing techniques for Cabaret and Choral performances, audition techniques, and culminate their work in a Senior Showcase for agents, casting directors, and other industry professionals.
