Our Youth Musical Theater Workshops showcase student actors ages 8-18 and teach them to shine! Classes meet two days a week for instruction in musical-theater performance with the Barn’s dedicated and talented staff of theatrical and educational professionals. The workshop culminates in student performances that are open to the public.  We’ve had rave reviews from our young thespians, ‘The Ridgefield Theater Barn Kids (RTBK)”.

Theater Barn Spring Workshop 2019

“Broadway Scores!”


Directed by Missy Slaymaker-Hanlon
Musical Direction by Stefano Penã
Vocal Coach & Asst. Musical Director Anya Caravella

Broadway is known for their singers, dancers, actors and … baseball players?!?!?   How about chess, crossword puzzles, tennis and football?  Yup!  All that and more can be found in our Spring 2019 Musical Revue: “Broadway Scores!”

Theater Barn students meet twice weekly to learn material from shows such as “Damn Yankees”, “Promises, Promises”, “Chess”, “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” and more.  This workshop will focus on building an ensemble of student actors who adopt both the skills needed to perform onstage and the teamwork needed to be succesful.

Working with Director Missy Hanlon, Vocal Coach Anya Caravella and Musical Direntor Stefano Pena, students will have the benefit of small group lessons with peers after school once a week, and cast rehearsals on Saturdays.  The non-competative, low pressure environment insures that the emphasis is as much on fun as it is on learning.  Join Us!

Student Production Crew

The production crew volunteers their time to work with all casts and chooses to fill a backstage role. Stage manager, stagehand, set building, lighting and sound board ops, costumer, dresser, scenic artist is just a short list of the roles to be filled. Crew is assigned where the production needs them most. Crew members are also assigned a role in the play. The work is rewarding and counts towards volunteer hours for school and religion classes. RTB is a non-profit organization. For 10th grade and up, limit 6 students.
