Performers, ages 11-16, will participate in this audition based advanced musical theatre program in preparation for a production of LITTLE MERMAID. This class will move quickly and be significantly more challenging than the community programs offered thus far by Travelling Stage. In addition to production material, students will learn theatre and audition etiquette and take part in industry master classes. LITTLE MERMAID casting will take place through class assessment and an industry panelled audition.
Each student will also receive a private monologue coaching session with a professional monologue coach as part of the program.
Included in this program:
- Advanced acting, voice and dance instruction in a safe and inclusive environment alongside industry professionals.
- Private and small group coaching.
- An opportunity to perform on a stage in front of family and friends.
- Private monologue coaching
- A headshot & pizza party!
There will be no extra cost for costumes.
We expect full commitment from all participants. This includes reviewing music, choreograph and blocking in between sessions and a commitment to attendance.
