NEW!! Small Group Voice Workshop–Winter Session
Ages 12-16 (7th-11th grades)
If you love to sing, this is the class for you! Students will work each week on developing their singing voices through individual and group singing. Students will learn good breath support, healthy tone production and will come away from the class with at least one solo piece ready to perform or use in an audition! Students will spend the first half of the course learning the basics and singing together. As we head into the final weeks of the course, the students will begin to hone individual pieces in preparation for the culmination of our semester: an intimate recital for family and friends where the students will share all they’ve learned on March 21st at 6pm! (This class tuition is a ONE time payment NOT a monthly tuition.)
Tuition: $220 for the full session (NOT monthly)
Play Production: Game of Tiaras
Ages 13-17 (7th-12th grades)
When the aging king of a Magical Kingdom (England) decides to split his empire between his three daughters, Cinderella, Belle, and the Snow Queen (who in no way resembles a copyrighted character), terrible tragedy ensues. Terrible, hilarious tragedy. Combining the gut-wrenching plot twists of Game of Thrones, and the soul-numbing despair of Shakespearean tragedy, this adaptation of King Lear will leave you dying with laughter as the hilarity ensues.
