Summer StudioWorks Academy
Winnipeg Studio Theatre’s Summer StudioWorks is a musical theatre program offering training in “triple threat” technique: acting, singing and dance to students ages 10 and up. Since its inception in 2004, Director Brenda Gorlick has amassed the finest roster of Manitoban musical theatre specialists. Program offerings include: vocal masterclasses, dance technique, mock auditions, original and show choreography, singing and songwriting, scene work, playwrighting, improvisation, voiceover technique, cabaret work, music interpretation, and more. The weeklong program runs from 9:30 – 4:30 pm daily culminating with a final showcase presentation. We welcome students from across Canada to attend.
Fee for the week: $400.00*
Earlybird fee: $350.00 by May 31st
*Bursaries available based on merit and/or financial need.
We accept up to 24 students into the summer program on a 1st come, 1st served basis. There is an audition process which is more for placement than acceptance and may be arranged at a mutually agreed upon time either in person or virtually. Requirements include a brief song of choice and a short acting scene (supplied by Brenda).
