About VTMTA

Vermont Musical Theatre Academy - Revealing the Artist Within!

The Vermont Musical Theatre Academy (VTMTA) at Spotlight Vermont in South Burlington is an integrated program of study and performance in voice, acting, dance and theater arts for middle and high school age students.

We believe every student is unique. It is our job to endow them with the skills, technique, confidence, and resources to launch their creativity into flight. Our Specialized program fosters development of the individual artist, as an ensemble, soloist, and vibrant member of the community and culture. Every week, students will immerse themselves in voice, drama, and dance classes taught by experienced professionals with NYC, Broadway and TV/film credits. In addition to the learning musical and theatrical material, students will also have the opportunity to take master classes, ranging from on-camera work to technical stagecraft. Each semester will culminate in a performance, showcasing each student’s talents, progress and unique voice. Enrollment is now open for our 2019 - 2020 season!

It’s clear that the students at Vermont Musical Theatre Academy are receiving some of the best training around. Not only are they talented beyond measure with the ability to interpret a song well beyond their years- but more importantly, they are professional and kind. This is because Jen, Tim Barden, Bill Reed and the rest of their faculty foster not only the performer, but also the person- something that is invaluable for any young artist. It’s truly my pleasure to be able to work with these students. I look forward to seeing where they go!
