Musical Theater Intensive

High School Students


Our Musical Theater Intensive is specially designed for 9-12 grade students with a passion for performing, and a strong desire to work in a professional setting. These intensives focus on providing students the opportunity to immerse themselves into challenging material alongside a professional rehearsal process, preparing them for their next steps in their theatrical endeavors.


9 to 5: the musical

9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s. this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.

Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?
