Centre Stage Program
Musical Theatre Training for ages 4-16.

Students will get the thrill of being in a professionally produced show, complete with sets, costumes, lighting, sound and more while gaining confidence in themselves and creating lasting relationships with like minded individuals.

Students will learn dance skills, strengthen their vocal technique and play fun and imaginative improvisation games.
Equal amounts of the two hour class allotted for singing, dancing and acting and students will be introduced to the songs, characters in the show we are producing as well as in the show, preparing for in-class auditions together with their directors. Each week kids will be encouraged to find their voice, and to begin to make personal connections through fun team building games and exercises.
At the end of the term students will have learned one complete number for the show to be showcased to parents.
APRIL - JUNE
In our Perform term, students will finalize all character work and acting scenes, and learn the remaining musical numbers.
The young actors will be filled with the confidence it takes to get on stage and perform their hearts out, and are given the chance to mentor and learn from other groups when the student body assembles into a single rehearsal cohort before our June production. When the lights go down and the curtains go up, the cast will have multiple opportunities to perform for the Squamish community at Eagle Eye Theatre, creating memories they are sure to treasure forever.
JANUARY - MARCH
In our second term students will continue to develop their characters and scene work, dances and songs while strengthening their knowledge of Broadway style performance. This term students will continue to learn song and dances from the show, and strengthen their acting and vocal chops through games and exercises.
