GADA’s Musical Storyteller's Company was created for those who want MORE than what their weekly musical theater class can provide! More performances, more singing, more choreography, more acting, more responsibility, more dedication and more art! For those that have a serious passion for musical theater, the GADA Musical Company gives you the experience, guidance and understanding you’ll need to pursue a career in the performing arts, or just be a better person.
We have the utmost respect for competitive companies, however, we do not compete at GADA. Rather, we believe the most important element of dance and theater is the art itself. It is our belief that a great performance is not one that wins an award, but rather, one that succeeded in its desired message and was performed with the heart.

- SATURDAY REHEARSALS! - classes/ rehearsals will begin late august
- GADA PRODUCTIONS! (Fall and Spring!)
- MASTER CLASSES! - Summer/Fall/Spring master class with touring casts and companies TBD.

WHY JOIN A MUSICAL THEATER COMPANY?
There’s a million things I haven't done, but just you wait.
The Musical Storytellers is a musical theater company that exists to provide gifted artists (ages 10-18) the ability to push their singing, acting & dancing abilities. Through mini-revues, productions, additional materials, and performances, students can grow their potential as performers and more importantly, deepen their respect and understanding for the art of musical theater. If your son or daughter is passionate about musical theater, they may make the perfect addition to the talented GADA's Musical Storyteller Company Auditions take place each May.
MUSICAL STORYTELLER’S IS FOR YOU IF:
THE MUSICAL STORYTELLERS COMPANY
Members are expected to attend all scheduled rehearsals. IF you must miss a rehearsal, dancers must notify sally ASAP in writing (paper or email is fine) and MORE than a week’s notice. MISSING MORE THAN 2 SATURDAYS each semester (sept-dec and Jan-April) is not allowed and will result in being taken out of some, if not all, scenes/numbers.
Dress rehearsals are mandatory (missed DRESS rehearsal which is the rehearsal before a performance = missed performance, no exceptions).
Students are expected to practice at home between rehearsals. Choreography should not have to be re-taught. If a student misses a rehearsal, it is their responsibility to get caught up with a fellow dancer BEFORE the next rehearsal takes place. We try to post youtube practice videos for the dancers to use to practice with.
