Musical Theatre Marathon: Beetlejuice
June 8-12, 2020
This one-week workshop will use excerpts of scenes and songs from condensed versions of this popular musical to share with friends and family on the last day of class. Beetlejuice tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager whose whole life changes when she meets a recently deceased couple and a demon with a thing for stripes. And under its uproarious surface (six feet under, to be exact), it’s a remarkably touching show about family, love, and making the most of every Day-O! No experience is necessary to enjoy a week of exploring an amazing show!

Seminar style classes in all aspects of the theatre-making. Students will collaborate as an ensemble to create and perform a theatre piece centered around the Broadway hit, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
Musical Theatre Marathon: Hadestown
July 13–17, 2020
This one-week workshop will use excerpts of scenes and songs from condensed versions of this popular musical to share with friends and family on the last day of class.
