Show Stoppers: A Musical Theatre Program for Kids

Rising young stars will create and perform an original pocket-sized musical play in just two weeks! QT's first annual summer musical program takes students through the entire of process of creating a musical play from auditions to writing and rehearsing, ending with a final performance! Queens Theatre employs actively working theatre professionals with extensive backgrounds in both performance and youth performing arts instruction.   They are veterans of respected arts education organizations such as Story Pirates, O’Neill Theatre Center and Arts Connection.  At the beginning of each session, the students are given a theme from which they will create their scripts. The theatre’s director/choreographer will lead the students in the creation of the script and characters as well as a dance.  The theatre’s musical director works with the kids to create short original songs.  They also learn a kid-friendly song taken from a Broadway or movie musical.  At the end of each session, the students take the stage and perform their fully realized musical play for family and friends. 


Open to ages children ages 7 to 14!

QT Show Stoppers Summer Musical Theatre Program is open to all kids – no experience in the performing arts is needed to join in the fun.  Acceptance into the program is on a first come-first served basis. Auditions for roles will take place once the session has begun.
