The MMAS Jr. Performance Team picks up the pace as it continues to challenge the young aspiring musical theatre performer. Targeted to students ages 10-14 with 2-3 years’ prior experience, this musical theatre course is designed to further develop and refine the three key areas of musical theater performance: singing, acting, and dancing while preparing participants for future local and regional theatre competitions. In the fall 2021 semester, competition team students will be working on material from Jason Robert Brown’s musical 13. Following the story of Evan Goldman’s move from New York City to a small town in Indiana dubbed, “The Lamest Place in the World,” 13 unearths the many challenges of growing up as well as the struggles of fitting in as an adolescent. Featuring songs such as, “What It Means to be a Friend,” “A Little More Homework,” and “Brand New You” join us for a challenging yet extremely fun and rewarding experience.

FALL SEMESTER 2021 NOTABLES:

THANKSGIVING VACATIONS: There will be no classes held on Wednesday, Nov. 24, Thursday, Nov. 25, and Saturday Nov. 27 as this is traditionally a heavy travel time for families. Class hours will be made up at the discretion of the instructor.

MASK PROTOCOLS: Unvaccinated Students and visiting family members to MMAS are required to wear masks.

FINAL PERFORMANCES: We are hoping to present live performances at the end of the semester. Streaming is always a safe possibility depending on recommendations at that time. We will evaluate as the semester progresses.
