For vocal students learning contemporary song, music theatre is often referred to as the ‘modern American opera’. It’s a full dramatic immersion where acting, singing, and even dancing all come together in a vibrant art form.  While musical theatre productions used to be a staple of most high school’s annual calendar, in many locales it’s now reserved for highly specialized secondary or post-secondary institutions, meaning that the majority of students will find it difficult to access an affordable and well-run program.

For us here at the Merriam School of Music, beginning a music theatre program was a natural fit.  Our theatre, equipped with lights and video board, makes an ideal setting to explore the fundamentals of the genre.  And of course, our teachers play a huge role in that.

The program, currently run by Christa Richards and Stephanie DeCiantis, takes various groups of young singers through the paces, to consistently deliver positive experiences, engaging performances, and lasting memories.

Our musical theatre team themselves have extensive performance and educational experience in music theatre, a rare and unique combination of skills that we’re incredibly lucky to have!
