July 31 – August 11, 2017
Monday – Friday, 10AM – 6PM
Stage One is a two-week workshop that gives the young aspiring musical theater student, 14-17 years old, an in-depth experience in the world of professional musical theater. Students participate in classes and master classes, from 10AM to 6PM, weekdays from July 31 to August 11.
Throughout the two weeks, students hone their vocal, dance and acting skills under personalized, supportive instruction from musical theater professionals. In addition to daily training in acting, music and dance, Stage One also incorporates daily master classes from different DC theater professionals.
With a different master class instructor every day, this is an incredible opportunity for high schools students to work with award-winning actors, directors, choreographers, musicians and casting directors.
At the end of the two weeks, students are given the opportunity to share their experiences in an informal class demonstration for family and friends. There is no formal showcase.
Auditions for Stage One have already taken place. Please check back in 2018 for information about next year’s program.
