Spotlight on Young Performers
Spotlight on Young Performers is designed for students who wish to focus more specifically on a higher level of dramatic studies after completing our signature Broadway Bound program. Students are guided through the rehearsal process, putting together a production, and working as an ensemble in a fully staged junior production of a Broadway musical. The semester finishes with a weekend of public performances.
For the advanced young performer – grades 5-12. By audition only.
