Each semester 3rd-8th grade students in Junior Production Company (JPC) will rehearse and perform a musical. Students will be instructed in every aspect of the production process. Auditions will be held during the second week of class. All enrolled students will be cast in the production. Each student will have their moment to shine!
We offer three sections of this class, all of which are held at our Main Campus. Please enroll in the section that works best for your schedule.
Students will perform in The SpongeBob Musical: Youth Edition. (January 12-14, 2024), as well as Disney’s Newsies JR. (June 7-9, 2024). All who enroll and audition will be cast in the show!
Classes for The SpongeBob Musical: Youth Edition begin the week of August 28, 2023.
Students enrolled in Beginning Musical Theatre or Junior Production Company for The SpongeBob Musical: Youth Edition will automatically stay enrolled for Disney’s Newsies JR (unless you let us know otherwise). New students wishing to enroll for the spring semester to be in Disney’s Newsies JR. will be able to get on a wait list. After he SpongeBob Musical: Youth Edition is over, we will notify students on the wait list if there is room in the class. Classes for Disney’s Newsies JR. begin the week of January 29, 2024.
Tuition is $86 per month. Students taking more than one class (i.e. Junior Production Company and a dance class) will receive a discounted rate on additional classes.
In addition to the $86.00 monthly tuition, there is also a $125.00 Production Fee due each semester, as well as an annual $35 Enrollment Fee. The Production Fee helps cover the cost of theater rental, show royalties, costumes, sets, props, etc.
Some Saturday rehearsals will be required. In order to use class time as efficiently as possible, we try not to block scenes or teach songs with small groups of students during the regular class time. We do this on Saturdays, so the class time can be used for songs and scenes involving the majority of the cast. We notify all students and parents of the potential Saturday rehearsals at the beginning of each semester. There are generally one to two per month, but not all students will be called. We give you a chance to let us know in advance of any conflicts you have on the scheduled Saturday rehearsals.
Students should wear clothes which allow for ease of movement to class. Girls need tan Grecian sandals and boys can wear black jazz shoes or dress shoes (depending upon the show).
“My daughter has been at ArtWorks Academy since she was in the 1st Grade. She is now in 5th and I believe that ArtWorks has taught her so much more than just being in a musical. It has taught her how to be a leader in her school and given her the confidence to do things like Student Council, the talent show, and perform around town without fear. She loves attending ArtWorks and wakes up on those days excited about what she is going to learn when she gets there. My son has only been in Senior Production Company at ArtWorks Academy for a year and his favorite thing is the group of kids he gets to perform with. They are all so nice and talented.” -M’Leah T.
