Musical Theatre

Welcome to the Harrison Musical Theatre Department!

The faculty believes that to achieve success in a musical theatre career, one must first achieve excellence in all three disciplines of acting, voice and dance. The curriculum is made up of classes in: acting, dance techniques, choreography, history, vocal technique, comprehensive/production, technical support and private voice lessons. At the end of each term, to demonstrate artistic growth, students must pass a performance jury.

The Musical Theatre Department at Harrison School for the Arts provides a concentrated study on the disciplines of acting, singing, and dance within the frame of musical dramatic performance.

The Musical Theatre Department’s goal is to provide a rigorous education in the disciplines of dance, music, and drama. Students in the department will study various dance techniques, vocal styles, acting styles, theatre history, audition skills, stagecraft, backstage production techniques, specialty skills from guest artists, critique skills, choreography, music theory, rehearsal techniques, and performance techniques. These artistic mediums also include life skills, time management, and social skills.
