March Break 2018: Rainforest Adventure Integrated Arts Camps Are Coming!

This March Break, grab your suitcase and embark on a wild adventure! Join the Avenue Road Arts School as we swing from tree to tree exploring all of the creatures, critters and flora that make up these exotic lands. Children will draw, paint and sculpt, using a wide variety of materials and techniques, while creating unique art works inspired by the rainforests of South America, Central Africa and Southeast Asia. To explore the theme further, campers will participate in drama and music activities.

Main Audition Date: Monday, February 5th, time slots in 10 min increments from 4:15pm

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.
