DISCOVER. CREATE. PERFORM.
New Music Theatre Intensives is committed to training young and emerging artists in new methods and styles to prepare them for professional opportunities.
Bravo Academy’s New Music Theatre Intensives premiered in 2013 with the production of Make Me a Song by William Finn, produced in the immersive setting of the Norman Felix Art Gallery. The program was created to provide INNOVATIVE music theatre training, specializing in CONTEMPORARY musicals for our next generation of performers. Giving them the EXPERIENCE and opportunity to be led by a team of respected industry professionals. Since its inaugural performance, the program has produced eight inventive productions including a WORLD PREMIERE. It has grown from one intensive to five intensives per year. Each one comprised of a small group of talented and skilled performers admitted via audition.
New Music Theatre Intensives provide innovative, modern, advanced and highly specialized music theatre training for both young and emerging artists. Through producing contemporary music theatre, our intensive programs assist and advance artists as they work towards professional careers. We strive to challenge and educate artists to reach their potential. We aim to develop and produce new Canadian musicals and work with leading Canadian professionals and artists.
NMTI gives opportunities for all Music Theatre Actors, Directors, Music Directors, Writers, Composers, Choreographers, Stage Managers, as well as Set, Costume, Lighting and Projection Designers.
