About Our Music Theatre & Opera Program

Offering exceptional training in music theatre and operatic repertoire. Designed for singers of all ages & skill levels: from the beginner to the pre-professional.

The magical worlds of music theater and opera combine music, theater, dance, poetry, and visual spectacle. Join us as we train young musicians to captivate the sensibilities of the audience as they learn to create beautiful music!

Participants in the PIMF Music Theatre & Opera Program will perform a variety of selections from beloved vocal masterpieces (see below), which include music appropriate for every age and skill level. Students in this program receive hands-on training to discover the many levels of preparation and production required to create compelling music and opera theatre performances.

This Year's Program Will Include Selected Scenes From:

  • West Side Story

  • Beauty and the Beast

  • Lion King

  • Phantom of the Opera

  • Wizard of Oz

  • And more!

Are you interested in a major role? If so, upload your audition video here. Audition uploads must include five to ten minutes of solo repertoire. Vocalists should perform their most current, well-prepared pieces. We recommend (but do not require) that uploads include two contrasting pieces. Recordings may be accompanied or unaccompanied.
