Each semester K-8th grade students in Beginning Musical Theatre (BMT) and 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 each 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 Xanadu Jr. (January 13-15, 2023), as well as Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical (June 8-11, 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 audition for the children’s roles and SPC for the adult roles.
Classes for Matilda begin the week of January 30 (see note below).
Students enrolled in Beginning Musical Theatre or Junior Production Company for Xanadu Jr. will automatically stay enrolled for Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical (unless you let us know otherwise). New students wishing to enroll for the spring semester to be in Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical will be able to get on a wait list. After Xanadu Jr. 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 begin the week of January 30, 2023.
Tuition is $55 per month for BMT and $75 per month for JPC. 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 monthly tuition, there is also a 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. The Production Fee due each semester is $75 (BMT) and $125 (JPC).
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.
PLEASE NOTE: Students in Beginning Musical Theatre are not called for Saturday rehearsals, other than one or two at the end of the semester.
Students should wear clothes which allow for ease of movement to class. The following shoes are needed:
Performances for Xanadu Jr. are January 13-15, 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 are June 8-11, 2023 at the same location.
Tickets will be $8-$10 each for Xanadu Jr. and $10-$12 each for Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical. They will go on sale two weeks before the show. Parents will receive an email with instructions on how to purchase tickets.
“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.
