Musical Theatre 2-Week Extension

The Musical Theatre program includes both the 5-week Theatre Arts Program and a 2-week Musical Theatre Extension.


The 2-week Musical Theatre Extension program begins after the 5-week Theatre Arts program has concluded and focuses on Musical Theatre training.

Students must conclude the 5-week Theatre Arts training before beginning their specialized training in Musical Theatre. Students may NOT just attend the 2-week extension.

Students will receive classes in Voice and Acting for the Song from experienced NHSI and Northwestern faculty.  At the conclusion of the 2-week program, students will perform a song cycle based on the work explored in their classes.

I learned a lot about how to act the song and play a character I had never played before. I really enjoyed working on the [musical] production.”
