Ever wanted to sing like the performers on Broadway? Now you can! These musical theatre classes are for young people who are passionate about singing onstage and who want to build their skills while having a great time!
Singing in the musical theatre style is about the story first. Musical theatre performers aren’t cast just because they sing well (although this does count!); they’re cast because they look the part, can dance or move well, and can both act and sing. Musical theatre singers also need to know how to make a variety of sounds.
