Spring Musical

(Show Announcement Coming Soon)

Our Spring Musical is the most popular experience of all our Backlight classes! This experience gives performers the opportunity to play leading roles in full Broadway musicals, performing as the character they have always dreamed of playing. Roles are split amongst actors so that each student is given only enough as they are personally able to handle and comfortable with trying. This makes the Spring Musical experience perfect for performers of all levels of ability!

  • Classes on Mondays 11am-1pm or 1:30pm-3:30pm
  • Beginning October 2
  • Performances on June 1 & 2, 2024
  • Cost: $140/month

This class will include a showcase in which students will share the stage with performing artists from Third Coast Comedy Club in Nashville in what is sure to be a night of belly laughs for all!

Learn how to be part of backstage production team and receive hands-on experience as a Backlight Apprentice! This is a new experience in partnership with the Independence High School Theater Program. Backlight Apprentices will receive access for 8 months to the Backlight Masterclass Video Series and receive once a month in-person hands on training in various production areas at Independence High School. Each month will focus on a different production element such as: costuming, light design, set design/building, prop building, directing, stage managing…etc. Apprentices will not only learn how to do the tasks involved in these fields but they will work with Independence Theater Students to prepare those elements for a live performance that will take place at the beginning of April 2024 (exact date still TBD) as they work as part of the production team themselves.

  • Cost: $50/month
