Music / Musical Theatre

Let your inner Broadway star out on Arts Umbrella’s stage!

Sing. Dance. Act. Play. Our Music & Musical Theatre classes cover all aspects of performance from solo singing to group harmonies and choreography. Students explore technical and artistic sides of the craft, all while building a repertoire of ensemble pieces.

In our classes, kids, youth, and teens find their voices by developing the connection between the body, music, and storytelling. Students learn about artistic expression and build confidence as they practice, play, and perform.

Why Musical Theatre

Fun and dynamic, Musical Theatre is multi-disciplined, combining acting, singing, and dance. Classes may introduce theatrical terms, get silly during warm-up exercises, and engage young actors in memorizing a fun repertoire.

Musical Theatre also teaches projection, enunciation, articulation, and pronunciation – encouraging young musical theatre actors in their self-expression and helping to build self-confidence. Experienced instructors guide the journey, providing feedback and encouraging students to be supportive of their classmates.

Why will kids love Musical Theatre? Because from the dance steps to the harmonies, Musical Theatre shows us what teamwork looks like.

Music & Musical Theatre classes

Ages 2-6

Little ones get hands-on with our Theatre & Music classes for ages 2-6. Grown-ups can play along during Parent & Me sessions, while classes like Making Music introduce fundamentals like melody, rhythm, and collaboration in fun and interactive ways.

Ages 6-12

Musical Theatre classes at various community program and Arts Umbrella locations help kids and youth tell stories through singing, dancing, and acting. Young actors collaborate with cast mates, incorporate direction, and put together a smashing performance.

Students ages 10-12 can get serious about their Musical Theatre adventures in our Year-Long Theatre Intensive Programs, where they’ll learn to command the stage, improve vocal technique, and refine their skills.

Ages 13-19

Teens undertake a year-long Musical Theatre journey in our Year-Long Intensive and Pre-Professional programs. Guided by seasoned artist-instructors, students work together to collaborate, excel, and produce impressive public performances at venues like the Waterfront Theatre and Performance Works.

Showcasing your talents in multiple performances each year, supportive instructors who are also industry professionals, and the camaraderie of a cast are a few of the reasons this may be the Musical Theatre program for you.
