Why TSAS? I was aware of its excellent reputation, and knew the school’s environment and goals for student learning were what I wanted to be a part of. More importantly, I’ve stayed at TSAS for nine years because it has exceeded my hopes and expectations in providing an incredible learning process for all. The mutual respect and relationships formed between students, faculty, administration, and the entire staff all work together to build better futures for our kids and improve the world we live in!

Musical Theater

This course entails developing skills in vocals, dance and acting. Class performs at all applicable venues and performs the annual “big” musical which is democratically selected by the students. Lots of hard work but even more fun!
