Red Mountain Theatre Company has been producing a two-week long summer workshop since 1981.  We are committed to unique and high-quality education and training for young people, because no matter what career they eventually choose, the arts inspire skills such as creativity, collaboration, and confidence in their lives.  In continuation of this great tradition, RMTC is delighted to start providing drama and theatre classes during the school year.  We will still offer our Winter and Spring Break workshops, and Broadway Bootcamp will be back this summer!  Below are the classes currently open for registration.

 

 

WINTER CLASS OFFERINGS

 

Winter Workshop: Holiday Sleuths

In this rousing week-long performance workshop, students will master four musical theatre production numbers and create a performance about a holiday mystery: The holidays are over, but all is not as it should be - Santa missed Christmas!  It will be up to our heroes to solve this mystery before the New Year’s ball drops!  Performers will expand their knowledge of musical theatre repertoire while learning valuable performance skills.

Choose Your Destiny

Young performers will explore ways to physically and vocally create a character out of their own imagination.  They will learn improvisation skills and put their characters into scenes together.  Whether it’s on a ship on the open sea, in a fairytale castle, or out in the dusty Wild West, performers will become the protagonists in their own story.
