Musical Theater

Matt Boresi, Artistic Director


The Musical Theater Program at the Music Institute of Chicago teaches the fundamentals of stage performance through work with musical theater professionals, while fostering creativity and problem-solving skills. The productions have a Chicago theatre aesthetic - physical, ensemble-based shows presented in our well-equipped black-box theater. Everyone is encouraged to discover and improve their acting, dancing, singing, stagecraft and, in some cases, writing skills. In addition to the vocal work done with their musical theater ensemble, students are encouraged to study voice privately with MIC's outstanding voice faculty.


Covid Protocols

In order to keep everyone as safe as possible, all musical theater classes and performances will be held with participants wearing masks and social distancing being strictly observed.

The session ends in a performance of a mini-musical created by the campers.
