Rise and Shine! Join us in 2018 for...
In an exciting collaboration with The Creative Arts Department at Burr and Burton Academy, Weston offers high school students with an interest in musical theatre an incredible opportunity to learn what it takes to be a Broadway performer.
"Acting, I've come to understand, is about more than pretending to be a character. I have learned skills that I use on a daily basis. When giving a speech or reading an essay, I use projection, something I learned from being on stage. When I speak with teachers or possible employers, I make eye contact. As I continue to get more comfortable on stage, I become more comfortable with myself." Olivia S.
In a challenging yet supportive environment, students will take their acting, singing, and dancing skills to the next level with unsurpassed instruction from Broadway and Regional performers. For 2018, students have the option to enroll in one or two weeks of camp.

Students will learn the original Jerome Robbins choreography, songs and scenes from the show, explore scenes from the musical's source material, Romeo and Juliet, and engage in special workshops such as stage combat, audition technique, and tap. Students will share what they have learned on the Weston Playhouse Main Stage at 4:30 on 7/20, and then attend the professional production of West Side Story at 7:30. Tuition: $350.
