About Us:
Sunset Theatre Company was founded in 2005 in Los Angeles CA. We were founded on the principle to instill students with a passion for the arts. We have both after school enrichment classes, preschool classes as well as studio classes. Our company focuses on Musical Theatre. We believe that every student and child should have the opportunity to experience the performing arts. Whether they are experienced or not they will learn the tools they need to succeed. Most of all we want our students to have fun. We want them to always remember the time they spent with Sunset Theatre Company and to always have an appreciation for Theatre.
Arts education is a very important element in schools today. We follow the Michigan Performing Arts Standards in our curriculum. We use an abridged script as well as various techniques and games to educate students and stress the process of theatre. The camp culminates in a performance for family and friends to allow the students to show off many of the skills they were working on during the term.
