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. 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.

Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
