The Goodman's Musical Theater Intensive (MTI) is an entirely FREE, seven-week pre-professional program, introducing and supplementing the musical theater knowledge of 14 to 18-year-old students in the Chicago metropolitan area. Held at the Goodman, this program gives students the opportunity to learn skills from local theater professionals as they enter the rigorous world of musical theater performance.

MTI acquaints students to the demanding lifestyle of performers as they refine their skills in:

  • Acting
  • Dancing
  • Singing
  • Storytelling
  • Ensemble Work

Designed to build spaces that validate the voices of its participants and examine their own potential for creativity, MTI introduces students to the essential elements of the creation of musical theater, culminating in a performance on the Goodman’s stage. This ensemble-building program invites students to look beyond the lights and sounds of Broadway to the social, political, and cultural implications of musical theater.
