Take a Class, Audition for a Show!
About Classes at Journey Theater Arts Group
Enrolled students, ages 8 – 18, have the opportunity to audition for a Journey Broadway-style musical! Younger students may serve as helpers at our shows, and students ages 10 and up may work on a backstage crew.
Classes are held once a week for two hours, and run for ten consecutive weeks. During the tenth class week, a showcase is presented in which each class performs a brief prepared presentation, showcasing what they have learned over the session. Every student participates in the showcase. Classes are a great way for students to gain valuable theater arts training, develop confidence and make life-long friends!
