Your musical theatre career starts now!
Join America's top young performers in a professional theatre training experience like no other. Share the grand Muny stage with Broadway and TV's biggest stars in a large scale production. Challenge yourself with college level classes with the best in the business and faculty from the top musical theatre training programs across the country. Set your musical theatre career on the right path.

The Muny, America's premiere summer musical theater, hosts a one-of-a-kind summer intensive for emerging young artists. This three-week program in St. Louis, Missouri invites 12 rising junior and senior high school students from across the nation to participate in an immersive theatrical experience of a lifetime! 

The first portion of the experience introduces you to the professional life of a performer. Students work under the direction of a Broadway creative team as well as The Muny’s artistic and education staff to learn an epic show in 11 days. While rehearsing alongside the stellar cast of Broadway's best, students prepare to perform in The Muny’s premiere production of Chess for audiences of 11,000 a night.

In intimate master classes, students enjoy unlimited access to some of Broadway, television and The Muny's brightest creative talents. Masterclass teachers to date have included two-time Tony Award-winner Christian Borle (Something Rotten!, Peter and the Starcatcher, Falsettos, NBC’s Smash), Tony Award nominee Taylor Louderman (Mean Girls, Bring it On: The Musical, NBC’s Kenan), Ashley Brown (Mary Poppins), Josh Rhodes (Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, First Date, Bright Star), Grammy nominee Alexandra Silber (West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof) to name a few.  For more information on The Muny, please check us out at

During the second half of the experience, students receive pre-collegiate training from guest artists and faculty members from the country’s top musical theatre training programs. Classes include song study, acting, musical theatre dance, improv and audition technique. 

We are seeking bright, talented young performers with a hunger to learn and grow from every experience. You must possess a strong voice, be an excellent dancer with strong ballet/jazz technique, and have the ability to connect with an audience to tell a story. Only 12 junior and senior high school students will be accepted. This means you are entering your junior/senior year in fall 2023.
