Musical Theater Training Company

The Musical Theater Training Company, a two-week training program, provides pre-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.

Dates: July 24 - August 4, 2017

No audition required.
Alumni have gone on to star in Arena Stage’s Oklahoma! and Signature Theatre’s Hairspray.


Classes are held on-site in the rehearsal halls of Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater, where professional productions rehearse. The final showcase will take place in Arena’s newest performance space, the state-of-the-art Arlene and Robert Kogod Cradle.


Serious, focused students ages 14 - 18.

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