Academy Productions are a chance for the next generation of performers to put their knowledge of theatrical craft and artistry into practice and gives them a chance to stand A.P.A.R.T. from their adult counterparts and have their moments in the spotlight to shine. 

We offer students registered in our Academy Productions a rich collection of professional and personal development opportunities throughout the rehearsal process.  Something new we will offer with every show your child is cast in, is  An Actor's Lab Workshop tailored to the show they are in--this can include a Mini-Acting Masterclass or a Workshop with an Industry Guest Artist to gain valuable insight, tips, tricks, and insider knowledge they can then take and apply to their performances. Additionally, each production is staffed with experienced, dedicated, and professional teaching staff and coaches that help students learn, explore, and discover acting, dancing, and voice techniques and who are invested and committed to helping each student identify personal areas of strength and opportunity to help students improve their performances, confidence, and self-esteem.

ABOUT THE SHOW

Something is slightly amiss in this comedic and fun cabaret style show, where roles are reversed and boys get to sing their hearts out as leading ladies and girls get to strut their stuff as leading men. If you've ever dreamed of being able to sing or perform a role traditionally designed for the opposite gender, this is the show for you! 

**All race and ethnicities are encouraged to audition**

WHAT TO PREPARE FOR IN PERSON AUDITIONS:

Please prepare a 16 - 32 bar cut of a "gender bending" song. If you are a boy, please prepare a song that is traditionally sung or performed by a girl. If you are a girl, please prepare a song that is traditionally sung or performed by a boy. Please bring TRACK music in the correct key (CD, phone, etc.). An accompanist will NOT be available for this audition, so please do not bring sheet music. A capella singing is discouraged.
