Join CYT at Shepherd Kids for a musical theater adventure through The Lion King!

For 10 weeks students will explore the fundamentals of acting and musical theater performance using the characters and music from the show.  They will have the opportunity to audition, be cast, and rehearse.  Although this is not the Broadway show, students will perform a showcase at the end of the session that incorporates all they have learned.

This class takes place at Shepherd of the Desert, but is part of the CYT Phoenix spring session and students 8-18 are eligible to audition for our spring MainStage production.
