Each session of SSTI is centered around the production of a professional musical, crafted on a larger scale than most of our students have ever experienced.
After being accepted into SSTI (in late Spring), a series of video callbacks are issued to allow our staff to cast the session's musical. This means, unlike all other summer programs, our auditions are not held on site. This not only allows for a higher quality production experience, but it also prevents immediate competition upon arrival. No professional performer shows up on the first day of rehearsal to find out their role. That's camp. This Isn't Camp.
Over the next three weeks, our performers are put to task by our professional team of directors, choreographers and musical directors. With eight hour rehearsal days, six days a week, the process moves quickly and it isn't for the faint of heart. Beyond rehearsals, our cast is called for photoshoots, television appearances, and social media assignments.
