JUNIOR Troupe | Ages 8-10

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.

Junior Troupe is a fun-filled experience that introduces young artists (ages 8-10) to the fundamentals of music theatre - the perfect program for the young performer who is ready for a challenge, no experience required!

With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire, Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

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.

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.
