Grades 6, 7 & 8

2022-2023

Fame Musical

In addition to our CORE acting and musical theatre classes, 6th-8th grade students have an exciting array of electives to choose from this year! CORE classes are designed to provide students with a fundamental understanding of either acting or musical theatre and are the same curriculum each term. ELECTIVE classes are for students looking for an in-depth exploration of a particular topic and change every term. Take both CORE and Elective classes for a well-rounded theatre education!

There are no scheduled CORE classes for this age group during the spring term.  They will return for the fall term.
