This exciting and intense workshop is for the child who is serious about theater. Each actor must commit to working hard and learning every facet of putting on an Off-Broadway show. The director, choreographer and musical director provide training in acting, singing and dancing through the vigorous rehearsal process. The semester will also include weekly workshops conducted by Applause faculty members. Students will also receive at least two Masterclasses with top industry professionals! The semester ends with a performance in a beautiful Off-Broadway theater. Invite your friends and family to the shows, which are frequently attended by agents, managers and casting directors looking for new talent. Workshops are by audition only. Please call to make an appointment.

Class Policies

This is an audition only performance class created for the student who is more advanced and wants to immerse him/herself in the world of theater or dance.
RETURNED CHECKS: A $30.00 fee will be charged for each check returned from the bank for any reason.
MAKE UP CLASSES: There are no make-up classes for the Weekend Workshop program because each class is working on different material for the end of semester performance.
