Our emphasis is on the process of putting on a show, integrating theater games and acting exercises throughout the rehearsals. All auditioners are asked to come to callbacks the next day. At callbacks, we try out scenes from different potential shows, all learn a piece of a song together, etc. By trying out different shows and material with the entire group, we are seeing what shows and how many will best fit our actors that session. Our aim is to challenge our actors in different ways each session they sign up at Arc.
We endeavor to nurture our actors, instill self-confidence, and a love for the process of putting on a show. Each cast will have two performances of their show at the culmination of the session, in either May or June, depending on the schedule. Sign up for an audition! For the audition, please prepare a 1 minute song and a 1 minute monologue. If you need assistance finding a monologue, email galit arcstages. We are happy to help!
All sections audition on the same day. If you can't make the audition time, please contact us to set up another audition time.
A conservatory program, the Teen Intensive will consist of professional training from actors and directors with extensive experience in the business.

Classes & Workshops – Arc Stages
Join a cast and learn the transformative nature of our theater program. Musical Theater Levels. Our musical theater program teaches vocal, dance, and acting skills in a creative, supportive, and FUN environment, culminating in stage performances for each level of study. Musical theater comes to life through a series of engaging scenes. This is a highly supportive environment for youngsters to develop their courage to act, sing and dance. The level of challenge fits the needs of the group so that this introduction to musical theater is a positive experience for all.
Each class will include acting, improvisational games, creative movement, singing and scanned rehearsals with costumes and props. The last class will have a presentation of their mini-show with scenes and songs on the last day of their class in the studio. This does not have a stage performance. Perfect for those wanting to get a sampling of musical theater but might be intimidated by being on stage in front of a large audience.
There are no auditions for this class. There are several choral scenes and lines are distributed to fit the comfort and skill level of the individuals in the class. Cast members learn a mini musical with all of the costumes, lights, microphones, and scenery. Everyone plays a role but they do not have the stress of having to memorize lines - many, however, do. Children will be prompted during the show if need be. Kids are not required to be able to read. This level is intended to be fun and age appropriate.
They will have one performance on stage that is approximately 45 min long.
See a video of a portion of Disney's "Princess and the Frog". We do not hold formal auditions in Little Theater. The process is low key and designed to be fun.
As an introduction to the show they will be doing, cast members play acting games that invite them to pretend to be different characters, to speak using many different feelings, sing a line from a song, and to memorize one sentence and speak it. Teachers will invite anyone who wants to sing a song on their own a chance to do this, but it is not a requirement and there are plenty of other opportunities for us to get to know their talents if they would rather not sing alone.
However, if you think singing a song on their own something your child would like to do, it is helpful for them to have a song in mind. Everyone will get a part whether they sing alone or not. For those that can read, bring a printed script that has been emailed to you and have your parts highlighted. Play the music emailed to you as much as possible.
Those in this cast have varied experience levels. Some have been in several previous productions, others are new to theater. See a mixed selection of videos of our casts. Auditions for this level are still very low key, however they are less imbedded in drama games.
Our stories shine a light on challenges and victories
These actors will know they are auditioning but many come without any true preparation. It is helpful for cast members to have in mind one song they can sing. Everyone is asked to sing a part of a song by themselves without accompaniment and they read or repeat lines read to them.
