In the West Side Heights

Musical Theater Training

in collaboration with Teatro del Pueblo

The Ordway Center for Performing Arts and Teatro del Pueblo have designed a collaboration to deepen the impact of the arts through a series of activities that build equitable relationships, lift communities, and engage diverse artists in professional development and relationship building.

As a part of a two-year commitment to this work, we are pleased to announce a 6-session series of free classes in the fundamental disciplines of Music Theater Song Performance, Audition Techniques, Dance, and Musical Comedy scene study.

Our current series runs February 27 – April 3, 2017. The next training series begins April 24, 2017. Registration information coming soon!
