learn how to be a triple threat from triple threat pros!


The Music Theater Workshop at MSA offers students the opportunity to participate in an exciting, professional and in-depth study of the world of musical theater. The focus of this workshop is to give promising performers a real life musical theater experience by teaching the integration of drama, voice, and movement for the stage and choreographed dance in an intense conservatory-like setting.
Students are given the opportunity to work with a team of skilled professionals to hone their craft and build technique in all three musical theater disciplines. Mornings begin with a rigorous dance and vocal group warm-up in order to prepare for a day spent in a professional setting and taking master classes from industry professionals living in LA, New York City, and Chicago. Master classes will focus on audition technique, original broadway choreography, and business skills. The afternoons will be spent in rehearsals learning choreography, group and/or solo vocals, and theatrical staging and excerpts from famous musicals. These rehearsals culminate in a showcase on the last day of the workshop.


Participation in person versus virtual will remain TBD based on enrollment numbers and COVID-19 restrictions at the time of the intensive. Should social distancing requirements remain the same (March 2021 Governor Northam’s Executive Orders/VADH & CDC guidelines), students will be guaranteed a HYBRID format (at least half of the week onsite in person). Enrollment will be limited to 50 students (split into 3 groups) and first come first serve. Should guidelines change for better or for worse, we will modify plans and notify families of any changes.
Intensive mornings will be led by virtual guest teachers from around the country. Each day will be a new experience with two new guest teachers. Intensive afternoons will be led by in person directors & choreographers. These teachers will rehearse with the group for the full week to prepare showcase material. Showcase format will remain TBD based on COVID-19 safety protocols at the time of the intensive. There will be a showcase created each week. Students are strongly encouraged to register for both weeks, but will have the option to register for only one.
