That's a wrap! A special shout out to our Education Department's Onsite Fall Semester, Mondays, Ages 4-5 & 6-8 students on an incredible Final Sharing! This past Monday, both classes shared the musical theater skills learned throughout the semester, and belted out four fabulous musical theater numbers with passion, bravery, and confidence. Not only did they perform for an invited audience of family and friends, but they had the opportunity to share their work with the other Monday class! What a way to end the semester! 🎉

Bravo and thank you to our Monday Teaching Artists, Ruchir, Trey, Heaven, and Kevin, for providing a positive, playful environment each week, and bringing the joy of musical theater into the hearts of these young people. ⭐

Bravo to our Education Department's Onsite Fall Semester, Saturday Ages 4-5, 6-8, & 8-12 students on their fabulous Final Sharing this past weekend! Throughout the semester, these students participated in daily physical and vocal warm-ups, learned vocals and choreography to Broadway songs, and explored their individuality through ensemble-based theater activities.

We were so proud to see our Saturday, Ages 4-5, 6-8, & 8-12 students share the musical theater skills learned throughout the semester as well as perform show-stopping musical numbers with confidence. In addition, we were so happy to see students making lasting connections with new friends.

A special shout out to our incredible Teaching Artists, Steph and Kevin, for creating a positive, high-energy class every single week. Thank you for sharing your incredible skills and talents with the next generation!
