For all students who participate in our spring online courses, you are automatically registered for our Cyber-Cabaret. The theme for the cabaret is The Art of Self Expression, and all participants will be coached through musical theatre and a variety of genres expressing the importance (especially today) of expressing ourselves through art and its healing powers. The cabaret will culminate on Nantucket as a season opener on our White Heron stage. Through this online experience, students will be instructed and coached in aspects of musical theatre and the audition process.

"This above all: to thine own self be true,

And it must follow, as the night the day,

Thou canst not then be false to any man."
