About The Class
A musical theatre intensive in acting, singing and dancing, Musical Theatre Workshop celebrates its 19th year as Harrisburg's premier training program for the young professional. Tuition includes a trip to New York City to see a Broadway Musical and take a workshop with a Broadway performer. This workshop culminates in two live performances that have been rehearsed and curated by the students of MTW.
This year, students will have the opportunity to see Paradise Square and work with Kristen Beth Williams, one of the swings of Paradise Square. You can learn more about Kristen Beth Williams and Paradise Square below.
About Paradise Square:
Paradise Square is a musical set in New York City in the 1860s during the Civil War. It was a dark period in U.S. history, when the nation was divided over the status of slavery, the central issue that drove political, economic, and social policies of the era, and it influenced the moral character and artistic expression of Americans. Paradise Square focuses on the inhabitants of the Five Points, America's first slum in Lower Manhattan, within walking distance of the large mercantile employers and the dockyards at the island’s southern tip.
