Classes are listed in order of age range from youngest to oldest.
installments are due the first of each month
Broadway Pros (Ages 12-15)
Mondays 5:45PM – 6:45PM • Teacher: Aimee Ferenz
The intensity of study grows as students at this level travel through the ages of Broadway Musicals learning dance combinations from different eras of musicals while also focusing on acting through song. This is great preparation for musicals at schools, community theaters and the Mainstage Center for the Arts Musical Theatre Company.

This is a Musical Theatre performance based class where students will be working on DESCENDANTS: THE MUSICAL; full-scale musical which will be performed at the Dennis Flyer Theatre! (Please see prerequisite information below). All students will refine their skills in singing, dancing and acting in the real world application of a full musical. Performances will include professional designers and students will get the real feel of taking a production from start to finish. These are 90 minute classes September through March, 2 Hour Classes in April and May. Can be paid in full for a slight discount or in 9 installments. Performance classes also require participation in Tech Week rehearsals in Lincoln Hall at Camden County College as well as for all performances.
* Students in the class that are not yet in high school must also be enrolled in Broadway Pros, Harmony Show Choir, Encore Show Choir, Showstopper Acting or Private Voice Lessons at Mainstage Center for the Arts.
Improvisation (Ages 13-17)
Tuesdays 7:00PM – 8:00PM • Teacher: Courtney Bird
Tons of fun is the best way to describe a class in improvisation. Young actors will be introduced to the “rules” of improvisation and sharpen their ability to think on the spot through exercises and games. While they are having a blast, they will discover new and exciting ways to tell a story, create a character and build a strong ensemble.
Ace Your Audition (Ages 13-17)
Thursdays 6:15PM – 7:15PM • Teacher: Courtney Bird
This class is designed for those young performers who want to learn how to command a room and catch a director’s eye. Skills will include how to select, prepare and present the best audition material. Students will be encouraged to bring in the audition materials they need to prepare for school performances, or college and community theater auditions. Being the best prepared at an audition is often the key to success. Because of the unique nature of auditioning, rather than recital performances the culmination of this class will be a panel for a selection of Regional Theatre Professionals on Sunday, June 9, 2024 in the evening (exact time TBD). Students will be asked to perform their audition pieces and will receive written feedback from our panel of artists.
Acting Company (Ages 13-17)
Thursdays 7:15PM – 8:45PM • Teacher: Courtney Bird
This is a performance and skill based class geared to those students who want to strengthen their acting skills and have the opportunity to perform in fully staged non- musical plays.
