Auditions are held on January 19th for new members. Show Choir participants from Fall 2018 do not need to re-audition. Please note that that this program is limited to 80 participants, which means we are unable to offer a spot to every youth who auditions.

Our program includes four groups. Each group rehearses a dynamic musical repertoire for performances held throughout the year. The groups are:

Junior Show Choir (grades 4-7)

Intermediate Show Choir (grades 7-12): The perfect talent incubator for performers who aspire to be triple threats. Material is suited to developing skills and potential.

Advanced Show Choir (grades 7-12): Students who are on their way to synthesizing all three art forms - dancing, singing, and acting - get the opportunity to challenge themselves with thoughtful and complex material while continuing to build a solid performance foundation.

Select Show Choir (grades 8-12): A high level of expected proficiency both challenges and rewards performers whose skills call for more demanding material. Commitment to serious artistic growth for the full year (September-June) program is required.

More than just singing groups, Show Choirs are powerhouse performing troupes combining high-energy movement with tight vocal harmonies and expressive vitality. In the world of musical theater, your chances of being cast as THAT character (and getting to sing THAT song in front of an adoring audience) are largely outside your control. Show Choirs demolish that barrier, giving everyone the chance to perform favorite songs and amazing characters from the Broadway canon; past selections have been drawn from Next to Normal, Wicked, Spring Awakening, Sweeney Todd, American Idiot, and many other hot shows — not to mention the work of pop sensations like Queen, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, and more. Join us in this amazing program; it’s your time to shine!
