Musical Theater Summer Intensive: July 9 - 27, 2018
In keeping with Prospect’s commitment to support the next generation of musical theater artists, this program is an opportunity for students ages 12-17 to build their performance skills by working with a professional director and music director to present a new musical revue, premiering original songs and monologues written expressly for young people by some of NYC’s most exciting emerging composers and lyricists. The intensive offers a variety of workshops and master classes with Broadway performers, to deepen general knowledge of theater practice, strengthen vocal and acting technique, and enhance overall confidence. Past master class and workshop instructors include Hunter Bell, Jenn Gambatese, Cady Huffman, Jose Llana, Kenita Miller, Evan Pappas, Rashidra Scott, and others.
Participants work with Prospect's professional artists bring to life a brand-new musical. With Prospect staff and the teaching artists, program participants will workshop and premiere original songs while building their technical skills as actors, singers, and dancers. This program is intended for students with some previous musical theater experience who are excited to learn in a fast-paced environment, take artistic risks, and collaborate in an ensemble.
The program runs Mon - Fri, 10a - 5:30p, from July 9 - 27, 2018 and will be held at professional studio facilities in Manhattan. The culminating performance will take place on Friday, July 27 afternoon at the beautiful TimesCenter (242 West 41st Street) in midtown Manhattan, steps from Times Square.
