The Musical Theatre Intensive program is by audition only and it is for ages 11 to 17. One of the elements that sets this program apart
from any other program in the City of Vaughan is that students in our program are chosen to be there based on their audition. In addition
to this each child is featured, individually focused on and encouraged. We are able to do this by limiting our acceptance to 20 performers
per session/production. At the end of each session the performers will put on a full-length final production. On top of working towards
our final performance, we also have special workshops lead by the owner and professional actor Sarah Magni, in which participants will get
an exciting look into the professional theatre world. Each student will learn how a theatre audition works and will be given a chance to
workshop mini-audition pieces for Sarah. We also have special guests coming in all the time to bring new insight into theatre education.
Last summer our special guests included a make-up technician, opera singer and music therapist.
Thatz Showbiz is a unique summer theatre day camp in Vaughan with a unique vision. The program gives its participants a taste of the
professional musical theatre training experience combined with the gratifying and enjoyable experience of performing. It’s an intensive
that for the first time in Vaughan brings the techniques used by Broadway professionals, and the joy of putting on a top notch final
performance together in one program. Students chosen to take part in this program are treated like professionals and learn how to be
just that, all the while receiving individual attention and care and harnessing and expanding their techniques in all aspects of theatre,
improv, voice, dance and audition technique. We prepare our students for a potential future in theatre in its many forms, all the while
never forgetting how fun and rewarding performing is. Some of our students will go on to study theatre, music and/or dance professionally
using the tools we’ve given them along the way. For others, this is an experience in their lives that enables them to be stronger and more
confident in any career path they choose. We have had both students in the early stages of their careers in showbiz and students who are simply
in our program because they love it and feel it is fulfilling and expands them as a person in one way or another. Whether our students look
toward a future in acting or just joins us because it is a passionate hobby, the reaction has always been the same “I loved it and can’t
wait to come back!”
