Musical Theatre

Jenny Rizzo / Zoé Dupont Foisy / Alcina Chiu

The MCT Musical Theatre class runs from September to May.  It is split into fall and winter sessions- with winter additions building on fall experiences.


In the fall session, the students will begin the creation of a new musical piece, book, music and lyrics (no experience of this required!) with a writer / composer. The creation process will focus on imagination and collaboration. We will sometimes invite theatre artists to present MASTERCLASSES to the students (ie. clown, mime, mask). The fall session will lead to a presentation of works in progress on the final day of the session.

In the winter session, in addition to the continued creation of the piece, the students will prepare and rehearse the final musical product, which will be presented on the final day of this session.


Musical Theatre is split into two groups, juniors and seniors. All students begin as one and will split into two groups to work on their separate areas.  At the end of one year the performances combine. The songs, dances and script that the senior group wrote throughout the year are performed as the opening to the show. Juniors and Seniors then join together for one large Musical Theatre show.
