Theatre Arts

Prep musical theatre students

CCM Prep's Theatre Arts programs offer classes and workshops that teach essential skills for students interested in musical theatre performance and acting for the stage and screen. Musical Theatre students receive instruction in acting, vocal music, dance and both audition and performance technique from CCM collegiate and Prep faculty.
