Sing! Dance! Act! Actors meet once a week for a 2-hour rehearsal period. Students receive training in music & voice, acting, and dance through choreography instruction. NEMPAC provides an opportunity for younger students to work with older students which has proven to work very well, providing guidance to the younger students, while giving the older students leadership roles. Casting in each musical is based on interest, prior experience and attendance to the program. Students missing 3 or more rehearsals will not be able to participate in the production performance. Dress Rehearsals are Mandatory.

Student participants will receive one complimentary ticket to Actor Shakespeare Project’s teen production of Twelfth Night! All students must be accompanied by an adult, tickets will be made available for sale. 

INTERN OPPORTUNITY – Our Interns are students in Grades 7 – 8 who are interested in gaining experience in production and stage management. Interns will be paired with either our Music Director, Stage Director or Production Manager to assist in production needs, rehearsal and additional production support. Interns will also have the opportunity to assist in tech and staging a few scenes. Please contact ameek@nempacboston.org for more details.
