LNT will cast an inclusive & diverse company featuring fantastic roles for teens on our mainstage, working with pros.
Work with professionals and other students dedicated to pursuing excellence and exceeding expectations with dedicated commitment.
All your favorite characters from the movie and the 2018 Broadway production of Frozen are in this enchanting dance-musical which is the vehicle for our most advanced intensive.
Stretch your triple-threat potential as LNT’s professional directors provide participants with new tools and self-awareness to grow your acting, singing and dancing skills (often helping participants exceed what they thought possible of themselves.)
Designed for aspiring professionals, the focus is on honing new skills through a rigorous & intense professional rehearsal process with specialized classes including character-development, physical acting, voice, choreography & dance, theater protocols and “biz-savvy” audition prep.
Highest levels of concentration, collaboration, openness, ensemble-spirit, and self-discipline and self-motivation are demanded.
