Caught in the Act is led by Stacy Spears and is a program designed for young singers, actors, and dancers ages 10 to 15 looking for an immersion experience in the world of musical theater. One of the program's many strengths is their ability to deliver a completely developed product, from lead roles all the way through the cast to the members of the chorus. Educational aspects in addition to the theatrical skills offered through the program include research, oral presentations, writing autobiographies for the program, creating costumes and props, memorization skills, and much more.
The rehearsal process offered by Caught In The Act is extensive. Full cast music rehearsals are held and correct vocal technique is stressed to develop better diction, intonation, balance and blend. All cast members participate in acting workshops focusing on character work, improvisation, reacting, staying in the moment, and choreography rehearsals. Breakout groups are also held throughout the workshop and can include vocal lessons, small group choreography, blocking rehearsal, character work discussion, acting class, and prop and costume making.
