The Muny has partnered with iTheatrics to develop the Make a Musical program in local middle schools underserved in the area of musical theatre. In spring of 2016 Ferguson Middle School was selected as the pilot school for this program. Click below to view a video of their experience.
The program is designed to evolve over a three-year period. The combined resources of The Muny and iTheatrics give these schools not only the tools to create a musical but also the foundation for an artistically and financially sustainable theatre program. Each school receives the training and materials necessary to produce a fully-developed Broadway, Jr. musical. The teachers attend workshops with master teachers from iTheatrics and are mentored throughout process by a local project advisor from The Muny.
