Musical Theatre with the Masters!
Advanced Placement Work in Musical Theatre,
Taught by Leading College Educators!
"SSTI Online gave me training that I didn't think was possible through a digital platform! You get an incredible opportunity to work with the instructors in very small group settings, which provides a lot of individual attention. SSTI allows you to get to know yourself as an artist on a much deeper level!"
-Sydney K, SSTI Online Fall 2020 Student

WORLD CLASS FACULTY
Top instructors from top programs delivering coursework straight from their campus classrooms.
Weekly focus on technical growth provides a tool kit for success in college auditions, and beyond.
"These past 9 weeks of college training with SSTI Online Fall have been AMAZING! I learned so much from each professor and loved watching my classmates grow as artists throughout the session. It has created such a loving and safe environment, even over Zoom, and I have made lifelong friends."
"This was such a fantastic experience. Before SSTI Online, my confidence was a struggle and I almost felt like I could never do musical theater again. I thought I wasn’t good enough, but this environment and these teachers have me falling in love with it all over again"
"SSTI Online allowed for a lot of 1 on 1 coaching and guidance specifically designed for each individual. The feedback I got from the teachers was constructive and so helpful. The special topics classes were a blast and so interesting. If you are on the fence about doing this program, do it!
"SSTI online was such an amazing experience. Not only did I grow as an artist but also as a person. I loved the individuality within the classes and how invested the professors were. The SSTI family and faculty are the best and have completely changed my life."

In-person or online, we still eat, sleep, and breathe musical theatre. And let's face it, until now, summer was the only opportunity for a high schooler to gain exposure to the highest level of theatre education from college instructors. This changes with SSTI Online.
Each Sunday will begin with SSTI's 'Circle Time' gathering, a moment to gather with your entire session and create memories. You'll then rotate within small groups (6 or less) to individual courses, taking two 1.5 hour classes per week. The small class sizes have been created to ensure that each student is able to work and perform in every class.
Your classes will include selections from:
Fundamentals of Acting the Song
Musical Theatre Dance (variety of styles)
Vocal Technique (small group, private optional)
Movement and Physicality
Acting and Monologue Coaching
We will then have 6 scheduled evenings for Special Topic courses. Some topics for this offering will include:
Musical Theatre History
Meet the College Q&A with Program Chairs
Mental Health for the Performer
Students will have the ability to add on additional private lessons with teachers as their time and availability allows.
