About the Course.

Since 2008, our mission has been to help students celebrate their individuality, increase their confidence and hone their natural talent.  Our instructive musical theatre courses are designed to improve their acting, singing & dancing skills while creating a safe place for students to be accepted in a community. 

Each week, students develop their performance abilities, creating a dynamic character so at the conclusion of the course, they have the opportunity to ‘strut their stuff!’ at local theatre with full tech & professional costumes.

We pride ourselves on the individual attention with each student. For example, we have a “check-in” to kick off each rehearsal, inviting students to share thoughts about their day, so that we can better gauge how they are feeling physically and emotionally.Melanie Miles, Creative Director

FAQ’s – Tips & Tricks

Friendly auditions are to “place” you into the right course and a challenging role that will help you grow in your acting, singing and dancing. Your audition will be in 2 parts: a 1-2 minute monologue and a song of your choice (no pop songs please!) Sign up for a Dance Call suitable to your level.

We are looking for individuals who want to risk, rather than perfection. Have your monologue memorized, (know it inside & out!) that way, we can give you a direction and see how you ‘run with it’. Take chances in your song to story tell and bring us into your world!

The week prior to any show is referred to as Tech Week. During this week, all actors move from the rehearsal studio into the theatre where the performance will open its doors to the public. Tech week can be long and arduous, but necessary to pull the performance together with all the technical elements. It allows the actors to become familiar with the stage, set, lighting, costumes, makeup, an audience and each other. Often times, Tech Week is categorized as being the ‘best’ part of the rehearsal process, as it is where the relationships that have developed over the course of rehearsals transform into a family. We invite neighbouring elementary schools into the theatre to participate in watching a matinee. “Media Night” is where the local press and our photographer are invited to capture action shots of the cast backstage & onstage. A performance from each cast will be videotaped as a keepsake.

Tips for survival of Tech Week:

  1. Stay hydrated! Drink lots and lots of water.
  2. Pack healthy snacks and meals for you to consume over the course of the week.
  3. Bring homework to occupy your time spent in the theatre, you may not always be ‘used’ on stage.
  4. Sleep!
Beauty and the Beast tells the story of a cold-hearted prince who has been magically transformed into an unsightly creature as punishment for his selfish ways. To revert back into his true human form, the Beast must first earn the love of a bright, beautiful young woman whom he has imprisoned in his enchanted castle before it is too late. With a rich cast of characters, including vain Gaston, the Silly Girls, debonair Lumière, tightly-wound Cogsworth, warm-hearted Mrs. Potts, fatherly Maurice, and many, many more!!  This musical is bound to have your child prosper into a well-rounded performer!
