Not closed at all, but a very vibrant and wonderful place for kids who love to perform. If your SF kid has the Broadway bug, you have to check it out. Both afterschool and summer programs. My daughter has found a home away from home at

I wish that every child could have the opportunity to sing, dance and act in one of Musical Theater Work's productions. This company, located at the Randall Museum, produces such wonderful shows, complete with live orchestra music,

MTW provides children who have a real drive towards performing an environment second to none. The training is intensive for good reason, it's truly a group effort to put on a show. The instructors give guidance in song and dance, theater history, costume, lighting, staging, props....... and to a professional level. I was overwhelmed by the level of experience the instructors could impart to my daughter, and their dedication to the craft. I highly recommend any aspiring song and dance "kid" to get involved, the experience can solidify a great path toward their goals. The classes are 1 to 2 days most weeks, toward the performance week it's more, but a scedual is provided months ahead, so you know what to expect. The rehearsals lead to a 4 day run of the show, which was amazing! Truly a great experience!

MUSICAL THEATRE WORKS is a unique Theatre Academy and Performance Company for students in grades K-12. MTW offers an opportunity for students to learn about and experience all aspects of 'real theatre' taught by professional Directors, Designers and Instructors. The schedule for MTW is published early, but can be changed, as necessary, as the season progresses. Because not every student is in every scene, some students need to wait until their scene is being rehearsed. We endeavor to not call students to rehearsals unless they are needed. The time commitment for MTW can be considerable if the student is part of the Main Stage Performane Company which produces full-scale, full-length Broadway Musicals that take 4-5 months to prepare.

The casting is based on what each student brings to their audition and how well prepared they are. Our Directors offer suggestions and advice during the auditions so that the students can do the best possible job. As in 'real theatre', roles are assigned based on a student's experience level, their audition, their appropriateness for the character, and their potential to succeed in the role. Every student is cast in a specific role.

MTW is proud of the level of instruction that is offered and the broad spectrum of students that are attracted to the Company. With its considerable outreach program, MTW's diversity has grown and reached so many talented students throughout the Bay Area.

The schedule with Musical Theatre Works is ever-changing. Kids are expected to wait around for hours until they're needed on stage. Some of the backstage help is extremely rude. I wouldn't ever do this again, nor recommend it to anyone!

Cons: Huge time commitment, most kids have extremely minor roles, very expensive for the experience
