Intermediate Workshop - Fall 2019

LBMP's Fall 2019 session consists of 15 weeks of classes. This includes 11 weeks of classroom rehearsals, 4 weeks of rehearsals onstage, and one weekend of performances. Classes take place once a week after school. In these weekly classes, students will learn proper stage etiquette, gain confidence, sing, act, and dance while working toward a final performance. At the end of the 15 weeks, all students perform in a full length production complete with costumes and sets.


This spring's production is Disney's The Lion King Jr.!

View story synopsis here.


Fall classes for students ages 11-16 are referred to as "Intermediate Workshop" classes. At this age, all students have substantial individual speaking roles in the final performance. They also focus on singing and dancing and they perform in group numbers throughout the final production. Students in the Intermediate Workshop class have more responsibility and are challenged more as performers


Please note that this class does not perform in the same shows that lead and supporting casts perform in. The Intermediate Workshop students put on their own show and are referred to as the Time Steps cast. They are not in either the Musical Notes or Top Hats casts.


Weekly Classes on Fridays 3:45pm-5:45pm (6:30pm on some weeks)

This class is almost full - only 1 spot left!

Classroom Rehearsals:

These classes begin at 3:45 and run till at least 5:45. Beginning in the third week of class, Linda will request specific students to stay one extra hour for blocking rehearsals.
