The Guild has announced The Guild Music Theatre School, beginning September 18. Led by Lori Linkletter, Artistic Director of children’s theatre and community programming at The Guild, Theatre School at The Guild will focus on training young performers in music, theatre, dance and more.
“The Guild is proud to be partnering with the talents of Lori Linkletter,” says Executive Director Alanna Jankov. “The Guild Music Theatre School is a natural next step in fulfilling our mandate in supporting Island artists.”
With a team of qualified instructors including Sarah MacPhee (theatre) and Lacey Koughan (dance), classes will be held every Monday from 5:30–8 pm. On top of music, theatre and dance, each week will feature a different element of theatre such as lighting, stage makeup and improv, with some of the best guest instructors the Island has to offer.
Students will have the opportunity to put into practice everything they’ll learn with many performance opportunities on Tthe Guild stage, including two Christmas shows — Elf and Fairytale Christmas Carol — and a spring production of Into the Woods Jr and TBA. There will also be two summer productions of Aladdin and The Lion King.
Registration can be completed online or in person at The Guild Box Office.
