Schools and students have the opportunity to present a variety of categories for adjudication and feedback.  

Each performer or group receives an onstage workshop specific to his or her performance. 

Multiple Master Classes are offered throughout the day. We will be announcing our special Broadway guest teachers in the coming months.

Students are encouraged to meet and have fun during breaks from competition. Theatre games, laughter and engaging with one another is a part of what makes the MTCA experience special!

Professional Development classes are offered throughout the day for Directors, and Chaperones.  We offer a variety of workshops to grow your level of expertise!
