Saturday Theater Programs

Walnut Hill and The Center for Arts in Natick (TCAN) are pleased to offer three different six-week theater intensive programs for young actors,

March 25 through April 29. Each takes place on Saturdays at our Natick campus.

Youth Musical Theater Class - ages 10-12

Teen Musical Theater Class - ages 13-17
$525 (includes lunch each week)

Teen Acting Class - ages 13-17

These "master class–style" programs build both onstage and auditioning skills. The youth and teen musical theater classes focus on movement, acting, and musical theater styles. The teen acting class focuses on classical and contemporary monologue work geared towards auditioning.

All of the classes are taught by expert faculty and the Saturday programs are led by Walnut Hill theater faculty member Kirsten McKinney, an award-winning choreographer who has worked on more than 200 shows, and has over 20 years of teaching experience in the area’s most prestigious high schools and colleges.

The Spring 2017 program dates are Saturdays, March 25 through April 29. No auditions are required and parents are invited to the last class and a celebratory post-class reception.

Private Vocal Instruction Add-on
Musical Theater Voice Repertoire

Students ages 13–17 can opt to take up to a maximum of three 30-minute voice lessons, for a total of 90 minutes of individual instruction. Please note that extra lessons cannot be added once the program is in session.

These private musical theater coaching sessions are taught by Walnut Hill Theater Department faculty member Gina Fiore. The lessons will focus on developing skills such as diction, interpretation, and vocal style through the study of musical theater repertoire.

The additional charge to your program fee for these lesson(s) is as follows:

One 30-minute lesson - $40.00
Two 30-minute lessons - $70.00
Three 30-minute lessons - $105.00

We feel that these lessons can be a strong complement to your musical theater intensive experience and we hope that you consider taking advantage of this option.
