The second three-week session, “Introduction to Musical Theatre,” will be held July 10-26 for students ages 8-12. Classes will meet Mondays and Wednesdays from 1-3 p.m. CST.

The Youth Theatre Mentoring Program is offered for the first time this year for students 13+. The program is designed for students with previous theatre experience who want to refine their skills by working on monologues, songs, etc. for auditions and college admissions.
