Thespian Troupe 88622 will present a "tale as old as time" Oct. 12 and 13. Disney's Beauty and the Beast Jr. is Corbett Prep's entry into the Florida Junior Thespian Mainstage Competition, new this year for middle schools. A professional panel of judges is visiting middle schools across the state to screen full-length productions this fall for a chance to perform at the state thespian competition.
To foster a love of music, our program gives all students the chance to explore making music in a variety of ways.
All students have the opportunity to participate in musical activities twice a week, learning music fundamentals and exploring music of many cultures and historical periods. Students sing and learn drums, recorders, band instruments, Orff instruments, electronic keyboards, and computer programs.
Students who choose to take their musical experience to a more advanced level may join the Spirit of IDS Chorus (3rd grade), Warriors’ Pride Chorus (4th -5th grades), Middle School Musical Theatre (6th- 8th grades), and Beginning and Advanced Bands (5th-8th grades). Middle School students may also participate in the All-State Chorus Prep club, where they prepare for auditions for the highly competitive choral group that performs at the Florida Music Education Association conference. These enrichment opportunities give students even more experiences to embrace and develop their musical talents.
Many students also choose to further their students with private or group lessons in voice or instruments after school in Corbett Prep's Community School of the Arts.
A Corbett Prep fourth grader is making his Broadway debut in Kinky Boots. He is the second Corbett Prep student to appear on Broadway this year.
CAMP IDS students in kindergarten through middle school come to experience what it takes to put on a production in this intensive musical theatre camp. In just two weeks, they learn their lines, songs, dances and set changes. The students will perform Through the Looking Glass on June 22 and 23 at Corbett Prep.
