The Blake SUMMER Musical Theatre Institutes for 2018!
Nine years ago, the Summer Musical Theatre Institute was established at Blake HS with a mission to present both dynamic and highly – relative performing arts training in Musical Theatre for students both interested in “better” summer training as well as for high school and middle school students who simply love the performing arts and want to take time in the summer to have fun with the many interrelated aspects that make them up.
We have enjoyed eight outstanding summers and assembled a great teaching staff from both the professional field as well as everyday school teachers in musical theatre. We have taken care to make sure the staff can relate to students in the program and promote the development of every participant.
Our idea is to make sure that training was provided as well as great fun. You might agree that this is not always easy. However, past history shows that our staff delivers on this mission and our students not only re-register summer to summer but continue to develop the skills for which you set high expectations in your classrooms. Many of our graduates have gone onto college and professional careers in musical theatre, and partial credit for that can be seen in our efforts not only to train the students but we remain available to all of our participants for future audition assistance as well as our commitment to provide written recommendations students come to rely on from us.
In addition, we are cheaper in cost than any other institute/”camp” in the area. We feel that great training can be provided without charging a fee beyond the reach of most families.
This year we are offering a high school musical theatre experience with HAIRSPRAY as well as a Cabaret Evening of performances by all participants in the institute to demonstrate their overall development in the institute. The Middle School Program will be presenting ALADDIN, JR.
Students will receive training in:
- Vocal singing
- Dance for musical theatre
- Comedy and Drama
- Performance skills for Musicals
- Design concepts for musicals
Our goal is to return to you a more prepared and better-focused student for next school year.
Auditions are April 27 and 28 at Blake. Contact us for your audition time at the sign-up genius links:
