In 2018, students of the Long Island Musical Theatre Festival's Middle School Intensive performed "Hamilton: A Choral Medley." Words and music by Lin-Manuel Miranda as arranged by Lisa DeSpain.
Our 2019 Summer Festival will include a middle school intensive for students currently in grades 6 through 8. This program will be broken into two parts to allow students to register for either one or two weeks. The first week will focus on theatre games, improvisation, vocal coaching and acting techniques, while the second week will focus on preparing a performing DEAR EVAN HANSEN (Choral Highlights) by Benj Pasek & Justin Paul as arranged by Mark Brymer. All students will thrive in this program – both curious new performers, and accomplished young professionals will find a safe environment for risk-taking and learning.
WEEK 1: July 15-19
WEEK 2: July 22-26 Weekdays from 10am - 4pm
