The Academy of Music offers fun and engaging programs in musical theater for children ages 6 to15. During the summer, we provide two sessions of musical theater workshops that focus on acting, singing and dancing as well as auditions, costuming and props for the stage. These workshops are directed by outstanding and supportive professionals with notable accomplishments and who provide participants with opportunities for artistic exploration, self-expression, education and teamwork by exposing them to all aspects of musical theater. A Broadway-style musical revue performance is shared on the last day of workshops.
During the months of January, February and March, we run rehearsals for our Academy Youth Production company that includes practicing production numbers, choreography and scene work , culminating in a musical theater performance on our historic stage! The Academy Youth Production’s premiere performance in 2011 was Willy Wonka Jr. which played to a nearly sold out audience. In 2012, we staged Disney’s Camp Rock and in 2013 we will perform Phantom Tollbooth, Jr.
