Year-Round APA

We Listened To You!

We have had so much interest in our Fall APA programming this year that we decided to make it even EASIER to be involved!

This year we will implement a few options to our APA program. FALL APA students will be offered THREE different options for enrollment.

DANCE track will feature BalletMet dance classes on Monday and Thursdays from 4:30pm-6pm. This track is available at a cost of $950 for 14 weeks of instruction (September 9-December 19).

ACTING track will feature instructors Beth Josephsen and Ian Short and run Tuesday and Wednesdays from 4:30pm-6pm. This is available at a cost of $950 for 14 weeks of instruction (September 10-December 18).

MUSICAL THEATRE track will feature BOTH dance with BalletMet and acting with Beth Josephsen and Ian Short. This track is available at a cost of $1600 for 14 weeks (September 9 – December 19).

The Musical Theatre track is the most comprehensive and beneficial training we offer. However, we understand the demands outside of theatre on students and parents. This led us to re-evaluate our programming and make some changes.

With the Dance and Acting tracks, we would encourage students to take at least bi-weekly voice lessons with our Senior Voice Staff. This is not required, but strongly encouraged.

In the Winter and Spring we will have specialty classes lasting 6-9 weeks for those in our single track classes that will round out their education (for example, Movement for Actors). There will be several class options in Winter and Spring and we will announce the specific classes and programming later in the Fall.

As always, APA students are the first in line for auditions at CCT as well as with our co-producing partners (Short North Stage and CATCO is KIDS), as well as being offered opportunities for master classes, new works and discounted Academy Classes.

Auditions for Dance, Acting and Musical Theatre tracks will be held on 8/19 at 4:30pm. Dancers will be asked to perform a 1-minute dance piece as well as a 1-minute song cut. Actors will be asked to perform a 1-minute monologue 1-minute song cut. Performers interested in the full Musical Theatre Track will be asked to perform a 1-minute song cut and a 30 – 60 second monologue (all song, monologue and dance pieces are of the performer’s choosing).

If you are interested in auditioning for ANY of these options, please email Jesika Lehner at APA@ColumbusChildrensTheatre.org
