Every child deserves a chance to be in the spotlight! Whether your kid is a stage veteran or a fresh-faced newbie, they will experience musical theater in a whole new way. With our tag-team approach to casting, every child gets a starring part as well as being in the ensemble. 

The Kids Company staff will rehearse shows full of acting, singing, and dancing, while incorporating positive lessons through the theater arts. Our cast members will build confidence, flexibility, empathy, and find themselves uplifting the strengths in others. In our welcoming and inclusive atmosphere, our kids will find themselves astonished by what they can accomplish! 

Fall in love with a wonderful new show each week! You’ll be amazed by how hard these kids work and how much fun they will have! With only six days of fast-paced rehearsals, our cast will put on a final Saturday performance for friends and family.

Young performers (ages 8 to 13) who are wanting to learn musical theater from professional teaching artists. No experience or audition is required, and every child gets a part. Students must be 8 years old by the first day of the workshop and should have a 3rd grade reading level.

Tuesday-Friday rehearsals are 9am-4pm.
Saturday’s dress rehearsal is 2PM-4PM with the performance at 4PM.

Business Review

"I just wanted to drop you a note to congratulate you and all of the staff on such a fabulous performance! It was amazing in so many ways- it was really, really well done but it was also so clear that the kids were having so much fun and it was so equitable! You all did such a wonderful job making sure that all the kids had the chance to have a significant part and clearly they felt that."  

"If you ever decide to do programs during the school year, he would definitely be in!"

"We just wanted to thank you for everything you and your team did. We really really appreciate the extra effort and care." 

"Just a quick note, in advance of the show tomorrow, to say thank you to the whole team. We had a great week and, once again this year, we just adore the staff at MTW. We really appreciate the quality of the program you deliver!"
