The MMAS Sr. Performance Team is a semester long course designed to challenge and strengthen the skills of teen aspiring artists. This course will bring students through musical theatre history in an accelerated fashion paying close attention to proper singing technique, creative movement and dance, and character and ensemble driven storytelling. In the fall 2021 semester students will study the iconic work of Bob Fosse. Additionally, participants will explore Yorkey and Kitt’s concept musical Next to Normal. From choreography that broke the rules of traditional dance to a musical that tackles coming of age and familial struggles within the present-day American home, participants will be challenged by the groundbreaking work of both traditional and contemporary musical theatre.

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.
