Auditions for Teen Stage Ensemble!
Teen Stage Ensemble (TSE) is an audition-based program designed to strengthen skills in the performing arts. Students will meet twice to three times a week to gain a broad education in auditioning, scene work, dance, musical theatre, and overall performance. Guest instructors will be teaching master classes once a month. Students will focus on body work, vocal technique, and character development.
In the 2nd semester, students will build on their 1st semester monologue and scene work as they delve into a play specially chosen for the ensemble's strengths. Students will also be performing in a Cabaret event alongside our Mainstage performers!
