Current Broadway performers and NYU professors bring the Big Apple to the Big Easy. This session is for serious students who would like to be challenged in a nurturing, yet fast paced setting. Last year our faculty consisted of Tommy Bracco (Newsies), Janet Decal (Wonderland), Adam Kaplin (Kinky Boots), and so many more.

This is an evening session and dinner is included nightly.

Our 2018 Summer Intensive Registration Begins
February 1, 2018!

JPAS Summer Musical Theatre Intensives provide a challenging and high quality musical theatre education to students of the metro New Orleans area. The students who attend our Intensives are challenged and enriched through an encouraging and inviting environment. Summer Intensive welcomes children grades 3-7 and 8-12 each summer. Registration begins February 1 and often fills up very quickly! Individual attention and fun are our goals, so space is limited. Young performers have the opportunity to work with professional artistic staff. At JPAS, we place the child first and give them the opportunity to spread their wings in a creative and remarkable way. For more details on this program contact Lynne Bordelon at 504-885-2000 x 213.
