Teen Performing Arts Academy

The Teen Performing Arts Academy (TPAA) Is designed to enrich, uplift, and enlighten students who are serious about the Performing Arts. The Academy is the perfect opportunity for dedicated performers to learn and hone their craft in an experience that includes professional training and mimics a professional rehearsal schedule. Students will hone their talents as actors, singers, and dancers, guided by professionals from the theatrical industry.

The Teen Performing Arts Academy blends a wide range of master classes, taught by various artists working within the professional Millbrook company, with the rehearsal process for “Mary Poppins, Jr..” Having classes and rehearsals side by side gives students the opportunity to use their training immediately to help them grow and enrich their performances. All master classes and rehearsals are designed to help each young performer achieve at their maximum level. The program culminates in a public performance of “Mary Poppins, Jr”.

The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren’t the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that “Anything can happen if you let it.”
