Putting the Young People Back into the Forefront For Your Next Student Musical

Taught by the team from iTheatrics, the leading authority on music theatre education, this interactive workshop will teach participants new techniques to ensure that their next musical is student centered both on and off stage.

We’ve learned over the years that when students are empowered, the quality of their musical theatre program soars. This approach can be challenging. There are some who think a musical theatre director should be dictatorial and critical in a negative way. We do not believe that approach works; it certainly does not foster creativity. By putting your students’ creativity at the center, your students learn ownership in the art that you collaboratively create, readily remember what was taught because they helped create it, and the process is a certainly a lot more fun and engaging than barking orders all day.

Join Director of Education Marty Johnson and the CEO and Founder Timothy Allen McDonald as they share time tested exercised and techniques that will empower the young people in your musical.
