The Musical Theatre of Anthem (MTA), a leading nonprofit theatre company, is launching an array of new and returning classes for their fall schedule, offering an immersive theatre experience to aspiring artists of varying age groups.
Starting from August 15 through May 14, the MTA will host weekly Improv Games for children aged 9 to 16. The students will get a chance to learn the skills of improvisation, fostering creativity through fun-filled games and scenes. The class will be held every Tuesday from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. with a full series fee of $225 or a drop-in fee of $10 per class.

Simultaneously, the theatre will provide a Weekly Acting Class for kids between 7 and 14 years old under the expert guidance of Laura O’Meara. The class, suited for all levels of aspiring actors, will be held every Tuesday from 5:45 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. and follow the same fee structure as the Improv Games.

Young singers aged 7 to 14 can look forward to the Weekly Vocal Technique and Audition Prep Class. This class focuses on group Musical Theatre singing techniques, including harmony, dynamics, and diaphragmatic breathing. Scheduled for every Tuesday from 6:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m., the class also offers coaching on audition cuts for MTA auditions.
For budding dancers, the MTA offers a Weekly Dance Audition Prep Master Class for ages 12 to 18, conducted by Lyndsie Clymer. The class aims to enhance overall dance techniques, while preparing students for future MTA shows. The classes, which will concentrate on jazz, ballet, and tap, occur every Tuesday from 8:15 p.m. to 9:15 p.m.

The MTA’s fall schedule also includes an Intermediate/Advanced Drama Session for teens aged 12 to 18. The session will culminate in an original production by Jim Gradillas and Michelle Marie. Additionally, MTA will host auditions for the Improv Squad and Improv Zone on October 11. Classes for these groups will meet on Wednesdays, with a final performance slated for November 29.

All the classes will take place at MTA’s theatre performance space at 42201 N. 41st Dr., Suite B100, Anthem. For more information, visit or contact Jackie Hammond at [email protected].
