Musical Theater

Class Description

At this time, this intensive will be held online for summer 2021. Through a mix of synchronous and asynchronous learning, we are structuring our intensives to be creative, fun, and full of activities. If you have any questions about how we are moving to remote learning, please call or email with any questions.

Back to class safely – While we do hope to continue our in-person learning, please note that this learning experience may need to evolve to an online or hybrid learning platform based on the safety regulations and recommendations by the city and state.


The Musical Theater Review Three Week Intensive combines college ­level Theater, Music and Dance disciplines with guidance in how to create online musical theater content. The goal is to produce a digital performance in a team environment. ​
The program allows students ages 14-­18 to take on the roles of actors, singers, dancers, lyricists, composers and technicians learning what it takes to be successful producers while working together to bring their creative vision to life.
The last week of the Musical Theater Intensive will culminate with a livestream on July 31st.
