It’s time to start thinking about summer programs if your middle or high schooler is planning on furthering their musical theatre studies this summer. Even though it’s still February, summer is just around the corner and there are many local programs in the DC metro area that are fantastic!
1. Aimee Bee Inc will be offering a one week half-day workshop intensive for students to learn about contemporary musical theatre. It will take place from 9:30am to 1pm, June 27 through July 1, in Alexandria, VA. We will be exploring songs from shows that are currently on Broadway and the week will culminate in a cabaret style performance. Check out my website for more details and email me with any questions.
2. Signature Theatre’s Stage One is a two-week workshop for ages 14 to 17. Auditions are held in Arlington, VA on March 26th or by video submission. Taking place at this Tony award winning theatre, students are immersed in musical theatre for two weeks. Click here for more information!
3. Theatre Lab’s Summer Musical Theatre Institute produces two full-scale musicals each summer over a three-week experience. This summer, students ages 13 to 19 can audition for either or both Jesus Christ Superstar and Carousel. It’s a great opportunity for students to gain performance experience on a large production. Check out their website for more details.
4. High School Summer Musical Theatre Institute at Catholic University of America in Washington, DC offers rising high school juniors and seniors an opportunity to hone their musical theatre skills in a two-week residential program. Click here for more information!
If you’re looking to improve your musical theatre skill set this summer, there is absolutely a program in our local area that will fit your goals.
Did I miss any local programs that you would recommend to your friends interested in Broadway? Please comment and let me know if there’s another program I should add to my list and tell my students about. I’m always excited to learn more!
