Musical Theater at BMS
Brooklyn Music School offers a range of programs to introduce young performers to musical theater.
BMS Musical Theater Program - Fall 2017
BMS's Musical Theater Program is designed to introduce children into the world of musical theater and performance through a 12-week intensive course that culminates in a fully produced performance of a musical production at the BMS Playhouse.
The program will include specialized training in every aspect that goes into the musical theater craft, including:
- singing and vocal coaching,
- acting and character development,
- movement and dance,
- costuming and set design.
This program is open to all children ages 7-13, who have the desire to share the stage with fellow child performers. Classes are taught by teachers with world-class backgrounds in musical theater, opera, dance and performance. Each child will have a role in the final production and/or performances at BMS concerts. Our program is defined by the philosophy that every child can find their creative voice on stage, combined with intensive training in the fundamentals of vocal performance and building a dramatic vocabulary that ties with their emotions and lived experience.
For our first season, BMS musical theater will be producing an age-appropriate version of the very popular musical “Annie JR.”
Comprehensive, friendly, and exciting, this is the perfect way to introduce your kids to performance and theater!
Price: $540 for 12-week course
Dates: Begins September 9th, 2017
Time: Saturdays 2-4 p.m., with a one-hour chorus session during week
