Chicago: High School Edition

In one of the longest running Broadway musicals of all time, Merry Murderesses Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly vie for the spotlight and headlines while on death row. During this intensive program, you will receive training in acting under the tutelage of professional teaching artists. No prior performance experience is required to audition, but students participating in this program will be expected to learn, grow, and become part of a professional arts community. We are committed to fostering Education programs that reflect the diverse population of Collier County. Students from underrepresented groups and diverse backgrounds are encouraged to audition.




Ensemble roles are still available. Please contact Steven Calakos, Director of Education, for audition and scholarship information.
