Musical Theater

Students in this magnet perform in a choral setting, as well as yearly musical theater performances.

In the sixth grade, students learn singing, acting, and movement basics. Students are introduced to monologue and solo work and perform throughout the year.

Seventh grade Musical Theater students continue to learn about acting, singing, and movement and in this year students begin to prepare for their high school auditions as well as continue to perform in musical review and non musical theater performance.

The eight grade brings the culmination of three years of work with the production of a full scale Broadway musical. Previous shows include "Grease" and "The Wizard of Oz".

There are many opportunities for performance for Musical Theater magnet students including performances at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn Cyclones Games, yearly production of "Dragon Slayer" (an original musical performed in conjunction with the Council for Unity) as well as opportunities to attend Broadway shows.
