Young thespians (Grades K-5) focus on the fundamentals of acting, singing and dance; they explore body language, improvisation and characterization, vocal tone and flexibility, free movement, non-verbal communication and body awareness. A director, music director, choreographer, and student director guide students through the magical world of musical theatre packed full of adventure, self-discovery and heart, all while experiencing teamwork and pure fun.
