July 28 - August 10, 2015

Carthage offers a summer Music Theatre Intensive for Chinese students. Develop your understanding of American language and culture while polishing your music theatre performance skills!


Participants will build skills in acting classes, voice classes, and dance classes taught by music theatre professionals. These core skills will be integrated into a “triple threat” performance in our music theatre workshop scenes class.
