TexARTS Triple Threat (T-3) is a pre-professional musical theater program for committed students who are seeking advanced training and are considering a future in musical theater. Students study dance, voice and acting technique, and work on audition material, selected songs, monologues, and choreography. The T-3 company performs in special productions like TexARTS’ A Cool Yule holiday show and represents TexARTS at public performances throughout the community. Enrollment into T-3 is by audition. 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 on Saturdays for approximately 14 weeks and work with professional creative teams to rehearse and mount a fully-produced musicals. MTA productions are enrollment-based, meaning every student is cast in the show based on their placement audition. Many shows are “double cast,” giving students more opportunity to take the stage. Throughout the rehearsal process, they learn choreography, vocal, and acting techniques. The program concludes with public performances for friends and family in the TexARTS Kam & James Morris Theatre.
TexARTS recommends students enroll in technique classes to compliment MTA experience. The Fall MTA Session runs August to November and the Spring MTA Session runs January to April.
