The Musical Theatre Intensive is a cutting edge, five-week course providing rigorous musical theatre training anchored in the core belief of the Stella Adler Studio, that growth as an actor and growth as a human being are synonymous.   Impassioned acting rooted in craft is most essential in the pivotal moment when a scene becomes a song.  


Combining current Broadway professionals with the Studio's master teachers, the Musical Theatre Intensive is a one-of-a-kind experience that integrates performance and analysis of the musical theatre form with training in voice and speech, movement for the actor, and effective audition techniques.  


Designed for the professional actor with requisite skills in song and dance, the Musical Theatre
Intensive immerses students into a deeper, more precise understanding of their acting ability and development of acting skills while connecting their work with the rest of the world.

Faculty* also include Peter Flynn (Director of Musical Theatre Programs), Mark Fifer (Musical Director), Andréa Burns (In the Heights), Brooks Ashmanskas (Tony Award Nominated Actor), Jason Little (Hedwig), Wally Dunn (Spamalot), Betsy Parrish (Master Teacher, La Cage Aux Folles), Alithea Phillips (Head-of-Voice), James Tripp (Head-of-Acting) and Joanne Edelmann (Mimi Garrard Dance Co).
