Musical Theatre (5-8yrs)


Come join us for an adventure in acting, singing, dancing and artwork.  Popular children's stories are the leaping-off point of our Musical Theatre workshops, and culminate with a fabulous show for our families on the last day.  Classes involve theatre games, story exploration, working off of a custom-written script, simple stage blocking,  learning songs and simple choreography, and creating fun art projects for our sets. Each show has original music written by Christy Zarlengo and Marianne Ryan. 


Fall 2017 Show: The Lorax is the story of a boy who's looking for answers. Living in a ruined town, this little guy wants to know the story of the Lorax, so he goes to the Once-ler, an elderly inventor/manufacturer. Doc Brown—ahem, the Once-ler—tells the boy how the town came to be ruined, and most importantly, what he can do to turn things around.

Join us on October 16th for the free trial class (choose pay later during registration).

"Our 5 year old daughter loves going to her Musical Theater class, and looks forward to it all week. The combination of singing, stories, and artwork keeps her engaged in activities she really enjoys. She loves to perform, and the class manages to both make it an exciting event and keep it low-key so it's not overwhelming." - Karen
