Performer Training (Invite Only)
Much like an athlete trains between games, a performer should practice their skills and learn new ones between productions. BackStory Theatre is excited to announce our brand-new Performer Training. Different from other BackStory programs, Performer Training will focus on developing the performance skills of the participants. The program will begin late August with the fall musical and conclude in late April with the spring production. When performers are not working on a production, they will meet once a week for special training sessions. Please see schedule and commitment details below.
The cost of fall and spring show participation, along with continuing mid-season advanced instruction sessions, is wrapped into the total program cost. Additional production fees, such as cast t-shirts, scripts, and optional fees such as volunteer opt-out, will be due separately in addition to the base membership cost.
Advanced Training sessions will explore topics such as:
Tech for performers
Music sight reading
And much more!
