Creative Kids Theatre

About

Do you have a son or daughter who dreams of being on the big stage? A child who is often singing or dancing around while doing their chores? Maybe you have an actor on your hands who like to over dramatize daily events? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we have the perfect program for you!

 

Creative Kids Theatre is a one of a kind experience in Calgary for children ages 6+ yrs. Our unique Mainstage Musical Theatre program provides Triple Threat training to children and youth who wish to develop their talents and skills for the stage. Participants will receive 2.5 hours of training per week: 45 minutes of Dance Instruction, 45 minutes of Drama & Acting and 1 hour of Vocal Coaching. From September to December the weekly training will focus on skill building and developing the foundations required to be part of a theatre cast. Beginning in January the students will launch into weekly rehearsals for a full scale Broadway Junior musical production. The students will perform a full scale show complete with costumes and sets on the stage in May. 

 

Our Musical Director and Director/Choreographer will work together to select a show that is appropriate for the children and youth in our cast. When necessary (depending on enrollment) we will offer a Junior & Teen cast to produce 2 full scale Musical Theatre productions.  

The best part about this program is that it is open to all children. There is no audition required to join Creative Kids Theatre. We welcome all children and youth who have a love for the stage, passion for performance and wish to develop their talents through hard work and dedication. All participants will perform on the stage. Special parts and lead roles will be determined by the Musical Director and Director/Choreographer.
