Dive into the magical world of theatre! Everyone who signs up will participate in the collaborative process of putting on a play or musical for the community (provided they are able to work cooperatively in a group setting for extended period with minimal conflicts) . Through the rehearsal process, each participant will be cast in a role as they rehearse and prepare scenes, learn songs, choreography and staging in a safe, supportive and instructive setting. By show time, each performer will have a Marquee moment to shine, sharpen skills as a performing artist, and stand up taller after the final bow! Rehearsals require more dedication than workshops and are a longer time commitment each week and recommended more for performers who are able to withstand the rehearsal process. Check out our Audition Q&A for the scoop on auditions.
