Musical Theater (Winter/Spring 2020)

Theater for Preschoolers
Preschool musical theater

Ages: 4-5 Years


This wonderful class introduces musical theater to children, and now we put the spotlight on them! Through acting games, improvisation, singing and dance moves, your child will be performing in no time. If your child is already performing for you at home, or your child needs a little more encouragement, then this is the class for them! At the end of this semester, the class will have the option to perform on a stage with costumes, lights and sound in front of 500 people. Here’s a chance for your child to strut their stuff!
