about the summer intensive

Whether or not you dream of performing on Broadway one day, the nurturing yet rigorous musical theater training provided at The York will strengthen your theater skills as well as ignite creativity, encourage collaboration and boost self-esteem—all tools you can take with you on whatever path you choose to pursue. All classes taught by working professionals with the Master Classes conducted by Broadway’s top creative artists. Classes focus on acting, singing and dancing.

The York MTTP 2021 Summer Intensive will be all virtual this year, and with gifts that only The York can give: Students will be creating new musical theatre songs with our Songwriters in MUFTI songwriting teams!

Summer of 2020 saw the MTTP connect with The York Songwriters in Mufti contest, in which authors created brand new songs each week on a theme announced by The York every Monday. MTTP took that and ran with it, incorporating our students together with several of our Mufti songwriter winners, working WITH the writers on these brand new songs. It was a huge success!

This summer, we're back by popular demand with a program that only The York can offer: A chance to get in 'on the ground floor' with up and coming writers!

Video Highlight from Summer 2020

Once you become a part of The York family, you stay a part of The York family. We often invite current and past students to perform for special events throughout the year. In fact, in 2019, several of our students performed at the annual Oscar Hammerstein Award Gala honoring the Broadway legend André De Shields. Here's proof!
