Grades 5-8

The Lab is a challenging program just for our 5-8 graders, which allows our tweens to take their musical theater training to the next level!

Students will rehearse for a classic Broadway show that gives everyone a chance to shine and hone their skills. The Lab is appropriate for tweens with all levels of experience. The goal is for performers to obtain musical theater training while rehearsing for a show. The “process” – especially teamwork and self-esteem – is stressed as much as the “product” – an hour long performance for family and friends.


A different show is produced each winter (Jan-Mar) and spring (April-June).  Cast size is limited to 24.  Two casts rehearse at a time until the final run-thru, dress rehearsals, and show.  Registration begins approximately 2-3 months before the program starts.  Tuition prices are listed on each show’s page (click the show titles listed above). Make sure you join our email list so you get our monthly newsletter with registration start times, as this program often begins to sell out the night it opens.  Please check our summer page for July/August programming.

In our efforts to be as flexible as possible in this current climate, our attendance policy remains relaxed. While we encourage everyone to attend all rehearsals, during sessions 1-8 and brush-ups, children may be absent when necessary due to illness. For winter 2022, shadowing (attending another group’s rehearsal) is not permitted. We will be offering a zoom make-up each Monday to go over material taught the previous week. Anyone who has missed a rehearsal is encouraged to attend. Beginning in spring 2022, shadowing will be permitted.

Children are required to attend and participate in (and may not arrive late to, or leave early from) our two mandatory rehearsals. These rehearsals include the dress rehearsal (session 9), and the final dress/performance (session 10), all of which are marked as mandatory on the rehearsal schedule. Please make sure to double-check your child’s schedule to ensure their availability for these mandatory rehearsals
