Creative Generation Musical Theatre
Miss Margene’s Creative Generation Musical Theatre is a quality music group of young people ranging in age between five and twenty five years of age, which sing and dance in a wide variety of performances throughout their home state of Utah as well as across the United States.
The repertoire of C.G.M.T. includes shows featuring Broadway hits, pop tunes, holiday and patriotic favorites, popular country, and a parade of production numbers that will take you down memory lane with our “Back In Time" show.
Creative Generation Musical Theatre is under the direction of Margene Conde and Gary Jensen.
Margene Conde, Artistic Director and Choreographer, brings many years of experience choreographing for community theaters to our group.
Gary "Doc" Jensen, Musical Director and Arranger, is responsible for all of the special arrangements and all instrumental accompaniments for Creative Generation Musical Theatre.

If a performer misses a class or rehearsal, it is your responsibility to get any missed information about performances, fund raisers or schedule changes that may have been discussed during class.
Our Musical Theatre group performs year round at a variety of venues. Performer's participation is a one year commitment beginning annually in September. Performance parts and solos are given to those who earn them based on attitude, participation and technical readiness. We will not put a child in a situation where they will not be successful.
Unless otherwise noted, performers are expected to arrive at performance location 30 minutes prior to scheduled performance time. If a singer must miss a performance, it is your responsibility to notify Miss Margene in advance by calling 801-557-0429 so that problems of staging, partners and solos can be addressed. Please do not let the directors and other performers down! If a performance is missed without notification, a performer may be reassigned to alternate positions for the next performance.
