Kids Musical Theatre Course | Spring 2016 | Liberty Junction Theatre

Kids & Teen Musical Theatre Course – ANNIE!

Our musical theatre course is like no other course offered in Mississauga! For the past 7 years, we have been made famous by our “instructive musical theatre courses” helping kids & teens to improve in their acting, singing & dancing skills. We help absolute beginners to kids and teens who have agents. We train each child in a positive and safe atmosphere over 2-3 month period. Our musical theatre course will help kids and teens to build confidence on stage and to grow as actors as they become “Triple Threats”! Read Melanie’s blog with character descriptions.

Rehearsals begin the week of March 21, 2016! Once we have cast the musical, we begin blocking the scenes and teaching students stage directions and stage movement. We engage them in vocal warm-ups and exercises to help develop their acting skills. The Director will challenge the students to further their acting range. The Vocal Coach teach the students how to breathe properly, sing on key, work with them on their solos, ensembles and harmonies and with expression! For the dance component, performers will learn choreography challenging for their level and ability.

Our director designs what lighting will look like for each scene, researches and edits sound effects for the musical. Our stage manager and creative team resource props, make costumes and set pieces to bring everything together! All of our dedicated staff are committed to making the production a success!
