Summer 2021 Company Classes

FS students stand around piano, some looking at sheet music, with FS Teaching Artist seated at piano.

This summer, the two Company Class sessions will function as the ultimate Performance Experiences - major deep-dives into the fundamentals of performance over four weeks, within the world of a popular show title. Students will work with theater professionals to broaden their performance skills, deepen their knowledge of theater, and perform a show as their final presentation. Final Presentations will be shared on a virtual platform for family and friends to view.

Auditions are required for all Performance Experiences. Review our instructions for submitting your online audition, and visit each class link for specific audition requirements and submiting your audition online.

NOTE: these classes are held in-person at the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center. First Stage and MYAC staff will be following and exceeding CDC guidelines without exception as we hold modified classes in the building. More information regarding health and safety procedures will be sent to all registered families.
