One Day Master Classes
During 2016/17, Steel River offered many one day master classes like Stage Combat with Payson Burt, Creating your Home Voice Over studio with Joanne Mercer, Hooping with Brie Knight, College Audition Prep with Aileen McCulloch and many more. Look for a new schedule at the beginning of the 2017/18 season.
Fully staged productions are now available at Steel River Playhouse and run on a staggered schedule all year long! Classes will be offered with scripted materials in Musical Theater, Classical Theater and Dramatic Theater. Shows will be chosen based on number of students interested! Classes are $160 to $210 each (depending on length of workshop), and only run with a sufficient number of students. So we take interest lists until we have enough to do the show!
Here’s what’s up next and coming soon…Make sure to email us if you are interested in joining us so we can assure that a class will run.
