Call for Auditions
ARAS Musical Theatre Company (Grades 7-12, Winter 2017)

This is a class for students who are serious about learning the skills required to perform in musical theatre.
Students must request an audition if new to the program.
Singing, voice work, choreography, movement, improvisation and character development will be incorporated in this performance-based class designed in a professional, company setting format. This is a yearlong program with the cast working on two productions at a professional theatre venue. One on one singing/music coaching as well as choral work will be part of the program. Costumes, set and props are part of each performance and students will be expected to attend extra blocking, dress and technical rehearsals. Students may choose to register for the full year and participate in both shows or registration will also be accepted for one production alone.
Tuition fees will apply if accepted into the company.
