"The Rebel Convention was so much fun! And such a great opportunity for me to remind myself why I do what I do, and what I'm training for, and challenging myself to take my next step in my artistic journey. [The workshops] made me step out of the palying field that I normally play in, and made me step out of my comfort zone. Thank you, @rebeltheatrics, for letting me a parft of something bigger and igniting a fire, a want for me to go bigger!! If you can't tell, I had a really amazing time!" - April 2022 | Dallas, TX.

The Parent Track
Musical Theatre can be a family commitment. Which is beautiful. When I (Kellie) was a kid, it was wild that I had a "dance dad." Now, we have parents waiting in the lobby for their kid after an audition, ready to shower support. However, not all those parents know this world. Are you in insurance? A CEO? In a corporate position? Yeah, the arts world must be blowing your mind.
Join our leaders and special workshops JUST for you, the parents. Get support, have an open forum, speak directly with producers, administrators, casting directors, and emtional wellbeing support, and more to help you learn while your kid learns. We got you.
