Our program is uniquely designed to give students the opportunity to hone their skills in the central hub for launching musical theatre careers – New York City.
Throughout the program, students participate in a broad array of classes that focus on helping them find the actor within, expand their vocal and physical range, and guide them to learn and apply the emotional, physical, and technical work necessary for quality stage and on-camera acting.
