The Guild Presents:

The next Guild Music Theatre School semester begins January 7th. The fall semester was very successful with 3 fantastic music school shows. There was a Remembrance Day tribute show and many students also performed in the community theatre production of “A Fairy Tale Christmas Carol” at The Guild.

The Guild Music Theatre School provides experiential training for young performers in music, performance, speech and articulation, dance, stage etiquette and safety, props, costuming and more!

Guest instructors working in the industry have been invited to enrich skills and knowledge for the students.

Theatre training is accomplished through experience by learning, rehearsing and performing in full productions at the end of each semester in front of an audience on The Guild stage.

Music Theatre classes will be at The Guild on Sundays from 3:30 to 5:30 pm for Advanced students and Mondays from 5:30 to 6:30 for Beginners and 6:00 to 7:30 pm for Intermediate students.   Advanced classes are for older students who have had past performance experience, not necessarily based on age or grade.  Intermediate students may be invited to the Advanced class based on their abilities.

Students will apply their theatre skills on The Guild stage later in the semester performing in 3 musicals:  “Pajama Party!”, “Disney: The Movies & The Music” and “Into the Woods, Jr”, along with a Showcase event.

There will also be two summer productions: Aladdin Jr. and The Lion King Jr. by audition only!

Registration can either be completed online below or in person at The Guild Box Office.
