Musical Theater Training Company

The Musical Theater Training Company, our 2-week training program, provides professional training for the serious student in American musical theater. Taught by expert faculty, company members train in singing, acting and dance technique in daily classes. They then apply these skills in rehearsals, working toward a polished, final showcase, which is attended by members of Arena Stage’s artistic team. Members of this elite ensemble learn the importance of training within their art form, experience the professional rehearsal process within a company, and begin to develop a professional network. May be done alone or in conjunction with the Musical Theater Audition Intensive.


We have moved from Georgetown Visitation to Arena Stage’s new, state-of-the-art theater complex: The Mead Center for American Theater! Classes are held in its rehearsal halls, where Arena’s professional productions rehearse. The rehearsals and final showcase are in Arena’s new theater, the Kogod Cradle.


Serious, focused students entering grades 10, 11, 12 and the summer after high school graduation are encouraged to register.

No audition is required. Company members will be evaluated in dance, singing and acting on the first day.
