Musical Theatre is designed for those performers who desire to be "the triple threat." The department includes acting, singing and dancing techniques for all ages, and the coordination within oneself to do all three techniques successfully at once. Within each class, instruction in both historic and popular (age appropriate) musicals is taught. The end result is to have a trained performer ready to audition for OCSA, or any college Musical Theatre program.
