Work Study Program

We are so excited to pilot a NEW Work Study Program for 9th-12th grade students that allows our amazing young people to work behind the scenes during the entire rehearsal process for one of our spring productions. 

This independent Work Study Program will allow students to learn from the Director/Choreographer/Costume Designer one-on-one, creating a schedule that works for all involved and allowing our students' backstage creativity to shine in our spring productions!


How to Register:

  1. Anyone interested in the Work Study Program must complete this application.

  2. Once completed, please submit the application to Janine Merolla (

Important Notes:

  • If you are chosen for a Work Study Program, this will preclude you from auditioning for that particular show. Since your efforts will be back stage and rehearsals will require students to focus on their work study position, it is just not possible to also perform in that show. If time and energy allow, students are of course welcome to audition for the other 6th-12th grade show!

    • NOTE: This does not apply to the Assistant Costume Designer program for Disney's Frozen KIDS.
