Musical Theatre Workshop Jr.:
Raise Your Voice!
Directed by: Rachel Fournier & Josh Hahn
Raise Your Voice is a brand-new revue featuring songs from across MTI's Broadway Junior collection. From Broadway Junior musicals based on classic titles like Guys and Dolls and Oliver! to beloved Disney shows like The Little Mermaid and Mary Poppins, Raise Your Voice offers a fun introduction to musical revues. This cabaret will feature solos, duets and large group numbers and is the perfect opportunity for Center Stage’s young performers. Participants will not appear in all musical numbers and rehearsals will be based on which numbers a cast member is placed in.
