Musical Theatre Studio class is the centerpiece of our department's curriculum and the place where students will bring together not only the skills they are working in acting, dance, and voice class, but also where they build their content knowledge and understanding of the art form overall. It is essential for our students to gain a thorough understanding of the history of the art form: the shows, the creative teams, and the way that the genre was shaped by each historical era. Freshmen students take "Musical Theatre Studio I". Sophomores and juniors take "Musical Theatre Studio II". Seniors participate in "Senior Study" which incorporates elements of each.
