Company participation is encouraged for students who want to pursue musical theatre either in school, community, regional theatre productions, attend a musical theatre collegiate program or a career on Broadway. Companies are designed to give students purposeful performance opportunities, build their resumes, participate in master workshops with pros, and get the best training possible. Performance experience is required and/or other training to join this class. All students are serious about progress.
Auditions are required and companies are formed after annual auditions. Auditions are usually at the beginning of August. CAPA Company is a September to May commitment. Conflicts must be submitted by email to teachers and directors. No conflicts are accepted for the Company Showcase Dress Rehearsal and Performance. The Company Showcase is normally the first weekend in May. For the Company Showcase, students will wear basic pieces from home and will be provided additional performance attire for the performance. In addition to tuition there are semester supply fees. Companies meet once weekly until showcase production week where they meet for three additional rehearsals.
