Hi CMT Workshop Families:


We hope you are all doing well and have had a restful summer.  We have exciting news!  Our CMT Workshop Fall 2020 Session schedule is here.  


We will be working with both the Ormond Beach Performing Arts Center and Amanda’s Dance Center in Ormond to offer our classes in the Fall Session in a safe manner for our students while following the CDC guidelines.  


We have two calendars this year the PAC calendar shows all classes that will be held at the Ormond Beach Performing Arts Center location, 399 N. US1, Ormond Beach.  The ADC calendar shows all classes that will be held at Amanda’s Dance Center location, 873 Hull Road, Unit 2, Ormond Beach.


Our full Fall 2020 Session schedule for both Theatre and Dance classes will run from September 8th through Dec. 13th as noted on both of the Fall 2020 calendar sets.


The Fall 2020 Session will end with a performance during their last scheduled class of the session.  This performance will be videotaped and uploaded to our Google Classroom for parents and family members to watch, in lieu of hosting a live audience to comply with social distancing requirements per the CDC Guidelines.  


Registration for all CMTW Fall 2020 Session classes will be held on-line through our CMTW registration portal starting Friday, August 28th.  https://dancestudio-pro.com/online/cmtw


The Teachers, Staff and Board members of CMT Workshop have all of you in our thoughts and we all miss all of our students, the theatre, classes and the opportunities to perform. Thank you for your understanding through this difficult time.

About Us

The Children’s Musical Theatre Workshop, Inc. (CMT) is the brain child of Cynthia V. Simmons, Nancy Jo Mosser, Scott Winchester and Robert Arcuri, and was originally called the Starshine Kids. With the premise of adapting Musical Theater for young children and honing their singing, acting, and dancing skills, The Casements Cultural Center along with The City of Ormond Beach decided to give the Starshine Kids a chance, and a home.  In June, 1981 starting with just 5 students, The Starshine Kids of Ormond Beach had their first class. Over the next ten (10) years, moving to the Ormond Beach Performing Arts Center, growing to 300 plus students a year, performing countless shows, having numerous camps, and being involved within our community, Starshine Kids grew to be known as The Children’s Musical Theatre of Ormond Beach.  When the group incorporated and received their 501(c)(3) status in 1996, they officially became Children’s Musical Theatre Workshop, Inc. 

Today, CMTworkshop, Inc. is a one of its kind family atmosphere performing arts educational organization for young people in the Volusia and Flagler areas and is dedicated to providing school age students the highest quality performing arts education with a focus on training in the musical theater disciplines of voice, dance and acting. For over thirty-nine (39) years, the CMT’s unique performance-based programs have served students at all skill levels. 

CMT's programs currently serve over 200 students annually and include:

·         Performing and theater arts courses for children and young adults including voice, dance, acting and related theater arts.

·         Outreach programs/partnerships with community, educational and social service organizations.

·         A Season of fully-staged musical productions featuring young performers.

·         A multi-session Musical Theater Summer Camp with a Performance.

·         Needs-based scholarship and financial aid for all programs.
