Our Youth Musical Theater Workshops showcase student actors and teach them to shine! 

Spring 2020 Workshop

The Theater Barn Kids Spring 2020 Musical Theater Workshop is full of movie-musical magic!  During this session, students in Grades 3 through 9 will work with Program Director Missy Slaymaker-Hanlon, Musical Director Stefano Peña and Vocal Coach Anya Caravella to learn the skills they need to perform their own musical production.

With an emphasis on education and teamwork, the workshop meets with students twice weekly: one afternoon each week in peer-groups to hone skills as well as Saturdays (to be scheduled) for rehearsing with their entire cast.  Dates and times for each of three separate casts can be found on our website registration page.

Our final project, a musical revue, will draw materials from Broadway shows that were inspired by movies.  Musicals such as The Wizard of Oz, Footloose, Hairspray, Singing In The Rain and other film classics will be explored.

Open to students in Grade 10 and above, RTBK Student Crew is a tuition-free program where participants support the production by working backstage as part of the Technical Crew.
