artsIQ is a unique program featuring an intensive weeklong summer workshop teaching the fundamentals of theatre and introducing the youth production. When casting the show all participants are guaranteed a role. Once cast the students go into a six week rehearsal period for a full-scale musical on the stage of the Memorial Theater.
Participants may choose from three tracks:
artsIQ KIDS offers youth ages 8-12 the basics of theatre through acting, music, and choreography instruction complete with a field trip to the Memorial Theater for a behind-the-scenes look at MTVarts' summer musical.
artsIQ JR offers youth 13-18 an opportunity to engage with experienced instructors as they learn music and choreography in a 3-day intensive. An audition experience is part of both KIDS and JR with all participants earning a role in the production.
artsIQ Tech Track was developed around a kinetic curriculum experiencing the behind-the scenes aspects of production. Field specific experts teach at the beginner level and the workshop culminates with production team positions for each workshop participant. *not offered in 2021
