SPRING CLASS OFFERINGS

 

Spring Break Workshop: Pirates! Cowboys! The Musical!

Join us for a rootin'-tootin' good time in this week-long performance workshop. Students will rehearse five musical theatre production numbers in an original script: Way out west on the coast of the Caribbean, the town of Kettle Gulch Beach has a problem. The residents do not get along. Only a musical rumble will settle which group is best - the pirates or the cowboys. Performers will expand their knowledge of musical theatre repertoire while learning valuable performance skills.
