Workshop and intensive offer a unique opportunity for hands-on theatre education. Together students will embark on an arduous journey to create a live musical theatre event. Along the way their multi-tasking will build confidence, teach life skills, foster collaborative relationships, and educate the imagination.

MTVarts’ performance-based youth arts education, artsIQ, provides opportunities for artists ages 8 to 18 to take the stage and engage nearly 2000 elementary students in a live theater experience as part of the YES series. Public performances are also offered. Our educational series not only has a positive, long-lasting impact on the students involved but on the community as a whole.

Those who are not cast in a speaking role will be divided into one of two ensembles.  The RED ensemble will perform the first weekend and the BLUE ensemble will perform the second weekend.  Both ensembles will have the opportunity for a YES school performance. 

Named, speaking roles will perform BOTH weekends and ALL school performances.

No conflicts can be accepted for named, speaking roles for any performance/final dress rehearsal, school or public.  Conflicts for rehearsals the week of September 19 and 26 are strongly discouraged and need special permission.
