OnStage | A professional theatre experience
Grades 3-12 | Tuition: $300
OnStage bridges the student's work in our classrooms with a professional theatre experience. This program is only open to students who enroll in our School of Theatre Training. This performance experience affords students the opportunity to bring their training and talent to the stage and work alongside professional directors and designers.
This intensive five-week program occurs every spring and requires commitment from both students and parents. Open Enrollment students participate in a lottery to receive placement in OnStage. Conservatory students are exempt from the lottery and receive early registration into the program.
After the all the registrations have been filled, students audition with a one-minute monologue and a 16-32 bar cut of song. Foundations students are not required to have either prepared, as a short monologue will be provided, and we will either have them sing “Happy Birthday” or sing scales with our accompanist.Directors, with advisement from Education staff, place students into one of the four show groups. During callbacks, directors will make the final determinations on casting the roles for the production. Spring 2020 titles include: The Sound of Music G2K Ed., Hairspray Jr., Wilde Tales, and Antigone.
