We handle the planning and you know you're  putting your student's education in the hands of qualified instructors with real world and educational experience.

The Stage Right Young Professionals Program requires an audition and students begin the year together in September. In this school year-long course, students will have intensive class work in musical theatre dance, singing, acting, improvisation, audition technique and more. Students will also learn interviewing skills and headshot and resume etiquette that is current with industry standards. This course is taught in a conservatory style setting with a small class size to give your performer individual attention and focus on their specific goals and needs.


The Young Professionals Program is a full school year program. The first year, tuition for the program is $1,250. 

Once your YPP student has completed their first full year, Education Director Amanda may approve them for continuing education. The YPP program for returning students will be $1000/year



1. Discuss with your performer the commitment of the program. YPP specifically does rely on outside work from students including learning lines, reviewing choreography and and developing their skills beyond class time. In order for students to get the most out of this program, class attendance and memorization of materials is critical to student success so that our staff can provide the best performance feedback possible.

2. Consider trying a 5 week class if a program is already in session. Our 5 week classes are a great way to test the waters with acting.

3. Sign-Up for an audition slot (usually released in June for the following year)

4. Prepare for an exciting year!
