Musical Theater Los Angeles (MTLA), owned and directed by Amanda Baird, a graduate of Oberlin Conservatory of Music, has been in business for over 18 years. Assisted by professional choreographers, directors and performers, she runs successful after-school Musical Theater Programs at Buckley, Brentwood Lower School, Brawerman Elementary School, Broadway Elementary, Berkeley Hall, Chandler Elementary, Echo Horizon, Hesby Oaks, Charles H Kim, Westside Neighborhood Schools, and looks forward to starting with our new school partners and students in Pacific Palisades, Venice, Palos Verdes, Beverly Hills and Hollywood this year!

Our staff have degrees in Theater, Musical Theater and Dance coming from a range of schools from Cambridge to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and are all working actors who have performed on stages from The West End to Broadway and everywhere in between. Our staff is professional, talented, warm, and know how to bring out the best in each performer. Not only are they talented performers in their own right, but more importantly they are excellent teachers who know how to make theater fun!

There’s a magic in children’s theater that takes our breath away. Shy children blossom. Eager performers find their natural element. Hard work and discipline, as well as fun, are what make the magic happen. Good theater is the end result of talent, polished by experienced direction, and sustained by the performer’s decision to do his or her very best, and to work cooperatively for the good of the show. Now, THAT’S magic!

We look forward to teaching your children how to create that magic ~ for themselves, and for you!
