Formerly Community Choristers, Studio Connect Musical Theater (SCMT) is excited to announce our
Fall 2021 Musical, the beloved classic, Annie!

We will be returning to in-person 90 minute weekly rehearsals with full enrollment capacity.

As for weekly rehearsals, enrollees, ages 7 - 14, will often divide into age groups, both to best nurture our children 7 - 9, and challenge our older group of 10 - 14 year olds.

In addition to working towards show production, children's skills in singing, dancing/choreographing, acting and teamwork will be honed with our nurturing, expert team.

Weekly on Tuesday

Begins September 7th

Rehearsal Time: 5:00 - 6:30pm

Monthly Tuition: $65

Note: There will be a Cast & Parent meet & greet on Tuesday, September 7th from 5 - 7pm. This will be an opportunity to receive information about weekly rehearsals and ask questions, as well as an opportunity for the directors to get a chance to get to know each cast members' singing, dancing and acting comfortability.
Actual rehearsals begin on Tuesday, September 14th.

"I believe that not only is musical theater fun, but there are SO many life skills to work on, such as confidence, public speaking, processing emotion, ensemble skills and team work. I LOVE seeing the kids grow in confidence to create and perform as they develop their skills in our program!"

Blake is a local music educator who grew up in central Illinois and moved to Bloomington in 2014 to pursue a degree in vocal music education from Illinois Wesleyan University. While there he participated in numerous operatic and musical theatre productions both collegiate and professional.

Blake first came to Kindermusik through the summer musical theater program, and was quickly taken by the positive atmosphere and musicality of students and staff.

Along with teaching Kindermusik courses, Blake is passionate about helping children connect emotionally to music through studio lessons. He began listening to classical music and opera in high school and was inspired as a performer and hopes to inspire that same love of singing in his students.

SCMT is currently full for our Fall 2021 production of Annie Jr.
