The Musical Theater Training Company

The Musical Theater Training Company, a two-week training program, provides pre-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.
