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.
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 in small groups. Week One focuses on songs and scenes from the musical theatre canon, while working on core skills in singing, dancing, and acting. Week Two welcomes the creative team of The Music Man as students begin to prepare for their finale performance. Week Three ties everything together and culminates in a performance on the MainStage followed by seeing the professional production of The Music Man
Students receive a t-shirt, two complimentary tickets to their finale performance, one complimentary ticket to the 7:30 performance on August 4th of Tenderly, and one complimentary ticket to the 7:30 performance of The Music Man on August 18th, where they will be recognized for their three weeks of study. Additional discounted tickets to The Music Man are available for friends and family for the August 18th performance.
"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 Saunders, Burr & Burton Academy.
