YSP Pre-Teen Musical Theatre Intensive Registration

February 23 - May 31, 2018

Event Description

Two Weeks: July 30 - August 11 
Monday - Friday, 8:30 AM - 2:30 PM

The Pre-Teen Musical Theatre Intensive is a great fit for students looking for focused, intense theatre training. The pre-teen program introduces students, ages 9-12, to the joy of participating in a show. Students work with a director, choreographer and music director over the course of two weeks to present a junior production of a Broadway show.

Broadway Junior musicals are condensed, author-approved versions of classic musicals, custom-tailored to the needs of young people. The music is written in keys that are appropriate for developing voices. Students will attend daily classes where material from the show will be used to teach them skills in areas of music, drama and dance. All classes are taught by master teaching artists. Two performances of a 60-minute Broadway Junior performance on The Hanover Theatre’s mainstage will be presented on Saturday, August 11. The 2018 production will be Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR
Please note, this is an intensive program which works at a fast pace and expects students to be flexible, adaptable, responsible, focused and capable of handling a high sensory environment.

$700 (non-refundable)

A $250 non-refundable deposit must be made at the time of registration. The balance of $450 and all other requested registration materials are due no later than May 31 and is also non-refundable.

About Disney's Beauty and the Beast JR:
Based on the original Broadway production that ran for over 13 years and was nominated for 9 Tony® Awards, and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney's Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance. The show features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Menken and Tim Rice.
The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
