This fun-filled and enriching summer program is designed to nurture each child's self-esteem and to foster self-discipline, arts appreciation, creative thinking, trust and teamwork. We provide a supportive environment that encourages participants to have the confidence to try new things and to believe in their own abilities as they express their talents and have fun on stage. We also offer every child the thrill of participating in an actual show on the same stage as some of the greatest performers in the history of American entertainment — the Academy of Music!
Outstanding and supportive professionals with notable accomplishments will direct the workshop. Instructors will provide participants with opportunities for artistic exploration, self-expression, education and teamwork by exposing them to all aspects of musical theater. Classes will be held on stage and in the hall of the renowned Academy of Music Theatre in downtown Northampton.
A Broadway musical revue will be staged Friday afternoon to showcase the week's work. Parents and friends are invited to attend this special performance.
