TexARTS Triple Threat (T3) is a pre-professional musical theater program. This program is for committed students who are considering a collegiate program or future in musical theater. Students study dance, voice and acting technique, and select and rehearse songs, monologues, and other appropriate audition material. Members perform in special productions and represent TexARTS at public performances around the community. Enrollment into TexARTS Triple Threat is by audition only, interested students should register for the summer Dance Intensive August 5-9. Please contact the Education Manager, Cassie Eckerman for more information.
The Musical Theatre Academy (MTA) is a production-based class for both youth and teens. Students meet weekly on Saturdays to rehearse a fully-produced musical. Along the way, they learn choreography, voice and acting techniques. The program concludes with public performances in the TexARTS Kam and James Morris Theatre. TexARTS suggests that technique classes are taken in addition to MTA. The Fall MTA Session runs August to November and the Spring MTA Session runs January to April.
