Workshops

Periodically throughout the year, KCMT will hold workshops, usually designed to prepare a student for upcoming auditions. These inexpensive, one-day intensives are set up primarily by age and skill levels.

MUSICAL THEATRE WORKSHOPS

KCMT is offering workshops during three weekends in December. This is a great opportunity for actors to brush up on their acting, dancing and audition skills before auditions for the spring shows. Actors will receive feedback on their dancing and acting after completing fun, holiday dance combos and acting exercises.

There are several dates to choose from; however, the sessions will be taught at different skill levels. If you have questions about your level, please contact the listed Instructor and they will be happy to help you find just the right fit. All workshops are held at the KCMT Rehearsal Facility (former Breidlablik Elementary). Registration is made by emailing one of the Instructors.

INSTRUCTORS – Ellie Swanson (emsbug10@gmail.com), KCMT’s Head of Choreography and Olivia Bentley (ocbentley00@gmail.com), KCMT Soloist Director.
