2017 Kids Theatre Musical:
This is a great program for kids (ages 5 1/2 - 10) who want to try theatre for the first time or enjoy a nurturing environment to cultivate their performing skills. The cast will work together on a short musical including acting, group singing numbers and creative choreography. In the true spirit of multi-arts education, cast members will typically assist with a design element of the show - from mask-making and costume design to scene painting. they'll be able to experience the behind-the-scenes elements of a theatrical production! No acting or performance experience is necessary - children who are just testing the waters are welcome to come audition! It's a different show and a brand new experience every year, so if you've been in one of our shows before, come join us for another one.
Participants register and pay for the program after they are cast. The tuition cost for this popular program will be $300 which includes over 40 hours of instruction, as well as materials (script, CD of the music, costumes) and souvenirs (a t-shirt designed for the show, keepsake program and poster).
The cast will rehearse two evenings each week (Mondays and Wednesdays) from 6-8pm. Rehearsals are held: March 6 & 8, 13 & 15, 20 & 22, 27 & 29; April 2 & 5, 17 & 19. Tech Week is Monday-Thursday, April 24-27.
Performances will be on Friday, April 28 at 7:30pm; Saturday, April 29 at 5pm, and Sunday, April 30 at 2pm.
Friendly, low-key auditions are held approximately 6 weeks before the performance. Students do not need to prepare anything beforehand - every individual will get a chance to read something from the script and the whole group will sing "Do, Re, Mi" together.
