  We are excited to announce that CMTW has been approved a very limited summer camp that will be following the CDC guidelines for summer camps.


To our CMT Workshop families:


We miss you all.  We know this has been a difficult adjustment for everyone.


The Ormond Beach Performing Arts Center is still closed until further notice for all regular classes and shows. 


We are excited to announce that CMTW has been approved a very limited summer camp that will be following the CDC guidelines for summer camps.  There is a maximum of 27 students per session (9 students per class room) and we have been approved for June and July camps. 


We have been told that no regular classes and no performances are allowed to be held at this time at the PAC.  With that information, without knowing when that will change and with no practical options left for this year to be able to perform the shows, we are sad to announce that we are canceling “Pirates 2” and “Crazy for You".  We had hoped to be able to move them to the summer- but we are not allowed by the City to have more than 27 total students with no contact and no performances in June and July.  It is impossible to do our shows with those restrictions. 


If you are interested in signing up your performers for summer camps, the dates are as follows:

June 15-19 (1 week camp)

June 22-26 (1 week camp)

July 13-17 (1 week camp)

July 20-24 (1 week camp)

9am- 12pm 5yrs old (as of 6/1/2020) through 5th grade $125.00 1pm-5pm 6th grade & up $150.00


Registration is done on-line through the CMTW dance portal website https://dancestudio-pro.com/online/cmtw .  And information will go out separately through and email and on CMTW’s FaceBook page.


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 J. 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 twenty-five (25) years, the CMT’s unique performance-based programs have served students at all skill levels.

CMT's programs currently serve over 350 students annually and include:

  • 14 performing and theater arts courses for children and young adults including voice, dance, acting and related theater arts.
  • Two (2) performing ensembles for middle and high school age students.
  • 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.
