“We have something for everyone at the Conservatory, and we are very excited that our signature Musical Theatre Production classes will be producing two full-scale musicals this spring: Ever Happily After and Anything Goes,” said Julie Rowe, the Theatre’s director of education. “The musicals will be performed on the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s stage, compete with professional production values: sets, costumes, lights, a full orchestra and more. Enrollment fees are all-inclusive, covering all costumes and performance-related costs.”
Over 600 students per year come from as far as Miami, Wellington and Fort Pierce to study at the Conservatory. The connection to the Theatre allows students the opportunity to perform on the Theatre’s stage and work alongside professionals both onstage and off, with hands-on workshops and master classes that offer students an opportunity to learn first-hand from nationally known directors and Broadway performers, agents and local instructors.
Upcoming opportunities include a free “business of the business” seminar open to all local students and their parents that will take place at the Theatre on December 6. The seminar will walk families through the process of working and succeeding in show business.
An exclusive program is the Theatre’s “In the Style Of” series, which offers an extra-special opportunity for Conservatory students to be selected for free, unique dance workshops with cast members from the Theatre’s upcoming 2015/16 musicals Billy Elliot The Musical, The Will Rogers Follies and Kiss Me, Kate.
