Our teen program is designed for students seeking a pre-professional experience. Teens attend daily company rehearsals focusing on music, drama, and dance for a final production. Students are cast in and present three performances of a full-scale Broadway musical at the end of the session on our stage.
This year, LAMusArt is proud to present “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown” as its mainstage production.

Due to demand for the Teen Musical Theatre Intensive, students must submit a qualifying audition application.
Qualifying audition applications must be submitted online through our application portal. Only qualifying students will be granted access to register. Submission will be via google forms, and can be found here or by clicking on the button below. Please note that these auditions will not determine roles for the musical, only qualification for the program.
Decisions will be announced via e-mail.
What You Need
