Virtual Showcase
Ages 6 to 19

Broadway may still be dark, but ACT at Wagner wants to shine the light on young talent this summer with our first-ever virtual showcase. Young actors will have the unique opportunity to practice and refine their performing arts talents with one-on-one mentoring from our ACT teachers along with a special master class guest. Participants will share their work in a virtual showcase at the end of the month.

August: Ode to Broadway

After the longest dimming of the lights in history, we will re-introduce some popular Broadway shows. Actors will select a vocal piece, monologue, or dance routine from a Broadway show suitable for all audiences. Actors can select one, two or all three talents to submit for review and selection by the ACT teachers.
