Teen Company 2022-2023

A 2 Semester year-Long Program

Spring Teen Company show – Head Over Heels!

WE GOT THE BEAT! Head Over Heels is the hot new musical set to the music of the iconic 1980’s all-female rock band, The Go-Go’s! It follows the diverse royal court of Arcadia on their journey to keep their famous “beat.” Head Over Heels is a mix of ancient Greek mythology, queer celebration, and Edwardian fashion.

Join our Teen Company for ages 13-18! Teen Company is an audition-based program designed for students who have a passion for the arts and interested in taking their craft beyond high school. Members receive coaching and training in voice, acting, dance, and other various disciplines of theatre in weekly classes and workshops culminating in the SPRING MUSICAL which is reserved for Teen Company members and graduates.

The year-long program consists of two semesters
  1. Fall Semester – Training, Technique, Building Tools and a final cabaret performance in December
  2. Spring Semester – Full MainStage Production
All students participate in an audition process in the early fall with classes beginning shortly thereafter. Teen Co. alumni must re-audition every year.
 

Teen Company meets weekly in the fall

*A note on attendance: This class builds upon itself. It has been structured so that minimal conflicts will still allow you to enjoy most of the depth of the material. That said, full attendance is, of course, preferable in order to get a full overview but minor conflicts can be negotiated.

Tuition: $1600 (or $800/semester)
