Musical Theatre at DAB
Our Musical Theatre program are true triple threat classes that are in 2 semester increments: Semester 1 (August 2023-December 2023) and Semester 2 (January 2024-May 2024). Sign up for 1 semester or both! The students in the second semester classes will participate in the end of the season recital.
Our Musical Theatre program will be divided into 2 different class options called Musical Theatre: Rising Stars and Musical Theatre: Broadway Bound. The students will learn how to audition technique, theatre improvisation, dance technique, and participate in theater exercises throughout the classes. The classes are tuition based and will fall under the regular class prices listed on the Class Prices page. In addition to tuition, the Musical Theatre classes will have an additional fee which are listed down below.
Musical Theatre: Rising Stars
Rising Stars is for ages 6-18 and for those that are interested in musical theatre, for beginners, and will be participating in a cabaret style musical production at the studio at the end of Semester 1. For Semester 2, the Rising Stars will be cast in and perform a small musical production that will be performed outside of the studio.
Musical Theatre: Broadway Bound
Broadway Bound is for ages 8-18 and for those that are fully committed to musical theatre, for those that can learn quickly, and will be participating in a small scale production at the studio at the end of semester 1. For Semester 2, Broadway Bound students will be cast in and perform in a larger scale musical production outside of the studio. Their core class will be tuition based and on Thursdays. In addition to the core class, the Broadway Bound students will have rehearsal on Fridays. Not every student will have to attend every Friday so it will not be included in tuition but is included in the Musical Theatre fee. Lastly, the Broadway Bound students are allowed 2 excused absences per semester. If multiple absences occur, the student's part will be recasted or scenes will be taken away.
Musical Theatre Show Fees:
On top of the monthly tuition for classes, there will be a Musical Theatre show fee in the amount that will cover the cost of the music license and rights, the show kit which includes the music and scripts, costumes, programs, posters, ads, scenery, props, any additional rehearsals, and for Broadway Bound-Friday classes. The fee for Semester 2 classes is more because the performances will be at a rented theatre rather than at the studio for Semester 1.
Rising Stars Semester 1: $50
Rising Stars Semester 2: $TBD
Broadway Bound Semester 1: $150
Broadway Bound Semester 2: $TBD
The fees will broken up into separate payments unless paid in full is requested.
Those dates are August 15 and September 15.
