Musical Theater Training Company

The Musical Theater Training Company, a 2-week training program, provides professional training for the serious student in American musical theater. Taught by expert faculty, company members train in singing, acting and dance technique in daily classes. They then apply these skills in rehearsals, working toward a polished, final showcase, which is attended by members of Arena Stage's artistic team. Members of this elite ensemble learn the importance of training within their art form, experience the professional rehearsal process within a company, and begin to develop a professional network.


The Musical Theater Training Company is housed here at the Mead Center for American Theater, Arena’s new complex built with a commitment to the next generation of theater artists. Classes are held on-site in Arena’s rehearsal halls, where professional productions rehearse. The final showcase will take place in Arena’s newest, state-of-the-art Kogod Cradle.


Serious, focused students entering grades 10, 11, 12 and the summer after high school graduation are encouraged to register.

No audition is required. Company members will be evaluated in dance, singing and acting on the first day.


The Musical Theater Training Company faculty represents the high standards of musical theater and education professionals. All members are returning faculty, have worked regularly on Arena Stage's mainstage productions, and demonstrate the excellence that comes with arts training.
