Sing For the Stage (or just for the joy of it)

Sundays, January 25- March 8th
11 am – 1pm

Free Introductory Class January 18th

Singing is effortless when you are grounded in solid technique and connected to your “authentic” voice. Whether you sing in your church, temple or school choir, are a dancer who loses confidence when having to sing, a young artist who is preparing for your college auditions, or you’re just beginning to sing again after decades of hiatus, Alisa’s “Authentic Voice Technique” can give you the tools to create a healthy foundation as well as avoid the vocal strain or burnout that can come from singing incorrectly. The class will introduce essential voice & audition techniques that can be used in any performance or audition setting. Artists are free to focus on their existing repertoire or work on new songs to expand their repertoire.

Join us this summer to experience the wildness and hilarity of  performing inside on the THT stage and outside in the park. Midsummer is a great romp of a play. Ensemble members will have intensive training in voice, movement, text and physical comedy as they prepare the production. Direction by Lindsay Pontius and Kendra Gratton. Lindsay has directed over 12 Midsummers, 15 Romeo and Juliets and 8 Hamlets just to name a few. She hails from Shakespeare & Company where she acted, directed and taught in the professional actor’s workshop as well as the Shakespeare in the Schools program. Kendra is a choreographer extraordinaire working with Middlebury Community Players and developed the movement for Middlebury Actors Workshop production of  Richard III.

THT goes Broadway with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. In this hands-on experience, actors will learn music, choreography, acting and more as they rehearse for this big, fun and colorful musical production. This summer, Young Company is lucky to have Douglas Anderson, THT’s executive director who is also the artistic director of the Opera Company of Middlebury. Doug is a successful professional director who has directed countless hit musical theater productions and will be directing this musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber (Cats, Phantom of the Opera). 

Everyone signing up for class will be in the show. Auditions for specific roles will be held June 22nd at 6 pm for Midsummer and 23rd at 6 pm for Joseph. Some scholarships are available.
