Meet The Directors

Morie Williams:

WHAT:

“The Best of Broadway JR” is a musical theatre workshop and production. Exploring Pop Rock musical styling students will train with a “Triple Threat” mindset. A “Triple Threat” is an industry label for someone that can sing, dance, and act.

Following CDC guidelines for outside activities, participants will learn techniques to strengthen their vocal, dance, and acting abilities. Our 12-week workshop culminates with a multi-performance production of “The Best of Broadway JR” on or around August 22; pending COVID 19 conditions. Following California’s State Board of Educations Arts Standards for public schools we’re able to meet and exceed the requirements of our state for public schools. The overarching goal is for students to attain lifelong, creative, cognitive, social, and emotional benefits from studying the arts. We look forward to calling “places” with you soon.

SCHOLARSHIP:

Dancing Through Life &  COVID-19 

While the pandemic has been especially hard on the live theatre and arts communities, T3 continues to work for equity, diversity, and inclusivity. Our individual needs-based scholarships are intended to include those that would otherwise go without access to performing arts training. Unfortunately, due to the times, we are without the resources to provide our traditional scholarship program this summer. The GOOD NEWS is we are introducing a new student-parent Work/Study Program (WSP) that can waive up to half of a student’s tuition.

How The T3 WSP Works:

Participants will need to show proof of income and/or enrollment in a benefits program. Once approved, both students and parents/guardians will take part in the WSP, working directly with T3 to sustain our program with your fundraising, administrative, customer service, carpentry, and technical skills.

PARENTS: will participate in the WSP Committee to strategize ways to raise the funds needed to balance our administrative, production, and scholarship program costs. One parent will be chosen to be the lead of this committee.

STUDENTS: will give 12 hours in administrative, customer service, carpentry, and/or technical work in support of the current production.

How to Apply:

Complete the WSP Online Application HERE before June 8, 2021. Once approved, both the awarded student and one parent/guardian will be required to attend a welcome WSP Committee Meeting (date TBD) where you will receive more details about the program and your specific roles and expectations. Details about this meeting will arrive with your approval email.

To apply for the T3 Work/Study Program (WSP) Complete the online application and attend a  committee meeting. You will receive an email regarding this meeting.
