ArtWorks Academy believes performing provides opportunities for growth and development. Collaborating with peers to produce a play or musical teaches students the importance of teamwork, while building self-confidence. Senior Production Company productions are open to students with varying levels of experience in 7th-12th grade.
Each semester this class will rehearse and perform a full-length 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!
Students will perform in Grease: School Version (January 20-22, 2023). In the spring semester students will perform in TWO musicals: Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical (June 8-11, 2023) and Singin’ in the Rain (June 16-18, 2023). The production of Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical is the full-length production and will be done with all K-12th grade students in Beginning Musical Theatre, Junior Production Company, and Senior Production Company students. BMT and JPC students will play the children’s roles and SPC the adult roles.
Classes for Grease: School Version begin August 29, 2022.
Students enrolled in Senior Production Company for Grease: School Version will automatically stay enrolled for Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical and Singin’ in the Rain (unless you let us know otherwise). New students wishing to enroll for the spring semester to be in Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical and Singin’ in the Rain will be able to get on a wait list. After Grease: School Version is over, we will notify students on the wait list if there is room in the class. Classes for Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical and Singin’ in the Rain begin the week of January 30, 2023.
Tuition is $109 per month. Students taking more than one class (i.e. Senior Production Company and a dance class) will receive a discounted rate on additional classes.
In addition to the $109.00 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 character shoes and boys can wear black jazz shoes or dress shoes (depending upon the show).
Performances for Grease: School Version will be January 20-22, 2023 at the Main Theatre at Randall University in Moore, which is located at 3701 S. I-35 Service Rd. Performances for Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical (June 8-11, 2023) and Singin’ in the Rain (June 16-18, 2023) will also be at the same location.
Tickets will be $10-$12 each. They will go on sale two weeks before the show. Parents will receive an email with instructions on how to purchase tickets.
“ArtWorks Academy helped me discover my passion for Musical Theatre. The owners, Katie and Michael, became my biggest role models, and I made life long friends. This theatre is the reason I was able to get into Oklahoma City University’s School of Music. If you’re looking for a foundation for your future success, go to ArtWorks Academy!” -Mackenzie M.
