OnStage

Performance experience for our
School of Theatre Training students

OnStage connects your student's work in the classroom with a professional theatre experience. They will bring their talent to the stage while working with seasoned directors and designers! This program is only open to students enrolled in School of Theatre Training (SOTT) or dance classes.
This intensive five-week program happens every spring. It requires commitment from both students and parents. Most SOTT students take part in a lottery to receive placement in OnStage. Conservatory students receive early registration into the program.
Directors, with the Education team, place students into one of four shows – two musicals and two non-musicals. During callbacks, directors make the final casting decisions before rehearsals begin.
