The Young Performer’s Workshop is an intensive 15-week musical theater program designed to teach children ages 8-18. This is a hands-on program designed to meet the needs of beginning, intermediate and advanced performers interested in working in theatre. Throughout the fall semester, students have the opportunity to learn about the many facets of theater arts, from acting, singing and dancing to stage management, props and costumes. Each session ends with a weekend of Festival de Spectacles. Potential shows for this session may include Shrek the Musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and Seussical: the Musical.
