The Graham Academy’s Youth Musical Theatre Program is designed to ignite imagination and boost confidence while providing aspiring young performers with opportunities to learn from passionate performing arts professionals. Through a performance-based multi-disciplined program participants develop a deeper appreciation for live Musical Theatre Performance.
With classes beginning in September, this performance arts program provides weekly training sessions culminating in a series of performance opportunities featuring our talented students who, on occasion will be joined by professional guest artists. Our program is designed to challenge the experienced participant while cultivating the techniques of novice performers. All youth with an interest in Musical Theatre are welcome.
Senior Groups will be led by Ian Locke and Ryanne Spencer year-round, with Yvette Coleman (50% of Fall semester), and Kelly-Ann Evans leading year-end productions in the spring*.
