Winnipeg Studio Theatre offers Musical Theatre classes for youth and adults throughout the year. For more information on the program contact Brenda Gorlick at firstname.lastname@example.org or click on the drop down tab on the StudioWorks menu.
In the past few years some of the performers who have received their professional start with WST have gone to work on Broadway. Samantha Hill just completed her run as Cosette in Les Misérables following her starring role as Christine in Phantom of the Opera. Nyk Bielak is currently understudying a leading role in Book of Mormon. Alexandra Frohlinger was in the new Broadway musical Soul Doctor and is now on tour with Cinderella. Stephanie Sy was in the US touring production of Rock of Ages and Josh Assor has been part of the Mary Poppins Broadway ensemble. Also four of our former students were part of the final 50 selected from across Canada chosen to be part of Over The Rainbow, a TV special searching for Dorothy in the Mirvish production of Wizard of Oz. We are proud of their accomplishments and realize even more that the work we do is an important contribution to the professional artistic community in Winnipeg.

StudioWorks is the training wing of Winnipeg Studio Theatre and has guided hundreds of students to find their passion in the world of musical theatre over the past decade. WST would like to celebrate the many emerging artists who have been scholarship recipients or who been mentored by the artistic team. We look forward to offering ongoing guidance and support to practitioners of our favourite art form – Musical Theatre.
