Children’s Theatre Program

Our Children’s Theatre Program prepares students with the skills needed to either enter college as a theatre major or pursue a career as a professional singer, dancer, and actor. The program focuses on the fundamental aspects of theatre including music, learning dialogue and lyrics, dance, set design, costumes, and props.

Students will learn contemporary vocal techniques to build their vocal skills safely. A solid acting technique is taught that will help young actors break down a script and deliver a truthful, organic performance. Dance terminology and choreography, movement skills, and relaxation techniques are taught in each class to equip young musical theatre performers with the strength to move with grace and ease.

The following Children’s Theatre program classes will be held at Enchanted Garden in Ridgefield – 165 Danbury Rd.
