Musical Theatre of the 21st century breaks the boundaries of traditional musical theatre. A non-stop amalgamation of singing, dancing, and storytelling, today’s musical theatre demands of its performers like never before. In Crossing the Chorus Line participants will receive practical and performative training in the dynamic world of today’s musical theatre, providing participants an energetic, senior level class that focuses on vocal and acting technique, as well as movement styling for contemporary musical theatre. In the spring of 2021, Crossing the Chorus Line will work on material from Hadestown, a folklore opera telling the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. With great movement sequences and dynamic stories, come and ride that train to the end of the line, performing solos and group numbers such as Road to Hell, Chant, and Wait for Me.


SPRING VACATIONS: No classes will be held over February (15-20) and April (19-24) vacation, but these weeks will be used to make-up weather-related cancellations.
