We are excited to welcome you to our award winning musical theater program! Mike Risko Music, named a family favorite by Westchester Family Magazine for Acting Classes for Kids and Children’s Theater Company and recognized for Innovation by the National Association of Music Merchants, offers students of all ages the opportunity to gain musical theater experience and skills through our classes, workshops and shows. Our programs train students in acting, movement and singing with an emphasis placed on vocal technique and an understanding of music. In addition, our students are trained in microphone use and sound technology. We offer many different classes, workshops and shows for different age groups.
We encourage kids of all different ages and levels to be a part of our program which is designed to fit into a busy lifestyle. Rehearsals are once or twice per week with additional rehearsals added in the week before the shows. Whether their goal is Broadway or they are just getting started, there is a place of everyone in one of our programs. Read on to learn about past and future productions.

Mike Risko Music offers several opportunities throughout the year for young performers to star in a musical theater production. There are opportunities for elementary, middle and high school students to be a part of our shows. We do three shows during the school year and one in the summer. Rehearsals are held in the weeks prior to the show once or twice each week with several performances at the end of the session.
This program is designed to give kids and teens the opportunity to be part of a professional show in a supportive environment. Young actors and actresses of all levels engage in a Broadway style experience that not only fosters a love of theater but provides a great social environment. From backstage to on-stage, participants are part of our productions from start to finish.
Our productions are geared toward all the elements of musical theater with a concentration on music. Since we are also a music school, all students enrolled in our productions receive the added bonus of vocal coaching during the course of the show. Our staff music lesson instructors work with our vocalists to ensure proper technique, voice training and a professional performance.
Some of our musical productions are offered in-house while others are at locations in the community. Programs are offered during the school year and in the summer.
