Sing Out: Divas!

This spring, AWT’s Sing Out will feature Divas – both songs sungs by famous “diva” artists as well as songs celebrating women and the female journey. Come join us as we celebrate artists such as Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Aretha Franklin, Patti Lupone, Bernadette Peters, Bette Midler, JLo, Beyonce and others*!

All songs will be performed as ensemble numbers or in small groups, to maximize cast bonding and making new friends. If you’re looking to park and bark while spending time with friends new and old, then this is the program for you!

Vocals: All the harmonies | Dance: Very basic movement

*Please note: All songs & artists specified above are examples for demonstration purposes. The final song selection will be determined by the creative team based, in part, on input from the participants.


Basic tuition to participate in an AWT Sing Out is $425. Newbies get a $38 discount. Participants can pay tuition all at once, or in three or four monthly installments.

Is tuition an obstacle for you? Now there are TWO ways to receive tuition relief at AfterWork Theater! Click here to apply for financial assistance or click here to learn more about accruing points through AWT’s new and improved CrewNer program!

Discount types can not be combined. Tuition does NOT cover a print out of your script/score/sheet music or your costume. AWT has a small budget to cover some specific costume needs. From there, we work with participants to piece together costumes sourced from their closets, thrift stores and the good will of the community.  All tuition payments are final and non-refundable for any reason.


Below is the rehearsal and performance schedule for Sing Out: Divas. Rehearsals are generally held one night per week from 6:30pm-10pm for eight weeks. As there are two casts, you may choose to rehearse on Monday OR Wednesday evenings depending on which cast you are placed in. During the second week of rehearsals, you will receive a detailed schedule that specifies exactly what dates and times you will be needed.

ATTENDANCE POLICY: Prior to Launch Day, participants will have the opportunity to list up to two rehearsal conflicts. Once rehearsals begin, participants may miss up to two additional undisclosed rehearsal. After that, it is up to the discretion of the creative team whether or not a participant’s role must be reassigned.

NOTE: the schedule below is subject to change.
