The magic and wonder of Musical Theatre is its ability to transport audiences to a different time and place. And the performance venue certainly plays an important part in setting the scene for the production.

RISE has incorporated theatre curtains, integrated speaker systems, and premier lighting equipment to ensure its facilities are production-ready. Our students are given the opportunity to perform with these great amenities while also learning firsthand about these important components of a Musical Theatre production.

Musical Theatre is a full sensory experience for both the actors and the audience, and our goal at RISE was to provide the facilities and equipment to make productions like this possible.

Winter/Spring 2021 Productions

Our Musical Theatre Production Class is an immersive experience for students that gives them comprehensive training in all aspects of performance through putting on a production while exploring their entire creative self.

Students will learn creative and performing arts skills through acting, dancing, voice, and creative arts (costume, set, & prop design) technique and how to work with other actors while engaging a captive audience in an end-of-class production.

Our Facilities

We offer 3 spacious studios for our musical theatre students to learn and prepare for productions:

  • Studio A is 1,500 sq. ft.
  • Studio B is 1,200 sq. ft.
  • Studio C is 600 sq. ft.

All of our studios feature high ceilings, mirrored walls, and in-wall speaker systems. Studios A & B are separated by a floor-to-ceiling acoustical floating partition that allows the studios to open up into one large performance space for in-house productions complete with theatre curtains and premier theatre lighting.

Studio C is a smaller, fully-mirrored space ideal for our acting classes.

Performance Opportunities

Our unique campus offers both indoor and outdoor performance opportunities for students enrolled in our production classes. Our goal is to give students as many opportunities as possible to perform in front of an audience.

The 2,400 sq. ft. expanded studio space and 2,400 sq. ft. outdoor lawn were both specifically designed with musical theatre performances in mind. 

Teaching Methodology

RISE Musical Theatre follows age-appropriate curriculum for each class and only performs family-friendly productions.

Students begin with introductory Musical Theatre classes that teach the foundations of Musical Theatre and beginner terminology. With some entry-level instruction complete, students are encouraged to participate in one of our production classes and gain experience performing on the stage.

Additionally, RISE offers various levels of Acting classes for students looking to learn practical skills that can immediately improve their performance techniques.
