Open to High School Students

MTCA provides an opportunity for students to experience the transformative power of Musical Theatre! Students experience a professional “Open Call” Broadway audition process, perform on stage in a professional theatrical environment, compete individually for professional adjudicators who offer constructive feedback, have the opportunity to watch and support other performers, attend exciting masterclasses, and make impactful connections with other Musical Theatre students from around the country.
