Intermediate Troupe | Ages 12-14

Bravo Academy’s Advanced Music Theatre Troupe Program is dedicated to providing the finest music theatre education in the Greater Toronto Area.

Students work with INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS and experienced theatre educators to produce high-quality performances, while receiving ADVANCED LEVEL TRAINING in the elements of music theatre. Admission to the program is by audition only, resulting in a FAST-PACED CREATIVE ENVIRONMENT where budding artists can truly shine. Music theatre encourages children to use their IMAGINATION, work as a team, develop communication skills and build self-confidence.

Intermediate Troupe is an energetic program that works collaboratively with like-minded artists to take your music theatre skills to the next level. Enthusiastic performers will learn to advance their techniques in singing, acting, and dancing!  A wonderful program for the young performer who is ready for a challenge, no experience required!

The Drowsy Chaperone JR. is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another. A man shares with the audience his favorite record - the 1928 musical The Drowsy Chaperone. As he plays the record, the show comes to life in his apartment. Mix in two lovebirds on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess,  gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and a clueless chaperone, and you have the ingredients for a show that will have everyone laughing.

CLASS FORMAT
Our Fall 2021 season will be conducted primarily in-person, with some virtual rehearsals. Students will work towards an in-person performance in December 2021, either livestreamed or for a live audience, depending on what COVID restrictions permit. Rehearsals will be held according to COVID-19 provincial guidelines. Should in-person rehearsals not be permitted, Bravo Academy is able to provide a rich virtual experience for all students.

Auditions

All of our Troupe programs are audition-based. Troupe auditions are held annually in May for the following school year. Once accepted, students also audition for their role(s) at the beginning of each term. While students do not require past music theatre experience to audition, successful applicants are those that demonstrate a high level of singing and acting ability in the auditions. In addition, a positive attitude, willingness to learn, and overall energy are major factors.

Full audition requirements, along with helpful preparation tips and resources, are available on our Audition page.
