If you’ve ever wanted to be in a musical or learn more about any of these topics, then Musical Theatre 101 is the workshop for you!
In this crash course, Kristin Sakamoto will lead participants through the basics of auditioning for and performing in musical theatre. Students will learn by doing- singing, dancing, acting, and discovering the best
resources for audition material and preparation.
All students will need the following to participate:
A desire to PLAY and try new things! Musical Theatre is fun!!!
Closed-toed shoes appropriate for dancing (NO Crocs, please!)
Comfortable clothes for movement- skirts must have leggings or undershorts
***If students wear footwear or clothing that inhibits movement, they will not be able to
participate in the choreography portions of the workshop and will be asked to sit out. It
is vitally important to keep everyone safe!***
