EJS Musical Theater Department

EJS has a long tradition of staging fun and amazing full "Broadway-style" musical productions. All classes are inclusive of students and participants despite their level of experience. All productions are taught and rehearsed in a learning environment and our production results have been spectacular! Our cast members range in age from 4 years old to 20 years young with all ages in between. We consistently receive feedback from many astounded audience member not expecting to see the caliber of performance that they witnessed! But most importantly, we have many students return year after year to participate in our productions because of the fun, positive and educational experience they receive!

Our past productions have included Annie, Fiddle on the Roof, The Music Man, Anne of Green Gables,  Cinderella, The Sound of Music, the Wizard of Oz and more...

We have three distinct theater seasons every year:

  • Fall Little Theater Productions: This season typically runs from September to December. All productions have small casts and are performed in a 200+ seat theater. These productions are an excellent opportunity for a student to experiment and discover their talents in an intimate class setting and performance environment.
  • Spring Mainstage Productions: This season runs from January to June. All productions have a larger cast and are performed in a 400+ seat theater. These productions are produced on a larger scale, are quite elaborate and A LOT OF FUN! Parents and students repeatedly express to us how wonderful it is to be able to participate in such a unique theater experience.
  • Be A Star! Summer Camps: Over the summer months, students enjoy our comprehensive, intense and really fun camps where they, in the span of 2 weeks, learn, rehearse, stage, design, costume, organize and perform an entire musical! Students get the opportunity to take part in all aspects of a theater production and have fun learning the ropes!
