Proscenium Theatre Space

Musical Theatre Space

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.

Fall 2021 Production Classes

Our Musical Theatre Production Classes are 7-week immersive experiences for students that give 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.

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.
