YOUTH WORKSHOPS


 

The Youth program offers the unique opportunity for every student to participate in every show, with no double casting. We do not mandate parent volunteer hours or require parents to purchase a certain number of tickets. We focus our musical theatre training by teaching the basics of singing, dancing, and acting. Our originally-written workshop shows culminate in a fun performance for the community, family, and friends. 


In the Youth Workshops, there are no lead roles; everyone has lines, several dances, and songs to learn*. Students experience working with adult "Guest Artists" who serve as mentors, many of whom are former students themselves. Students experience a full "tech week" with lights, live musicians, costumes, and props, which starts the Sunday before the show. And of course - the SHOWS! 

* With Disney or other productions that we do not write ourselves, not every student will have lines. Those productions put more focus on an ensemble.
      Class Times: 5:00-8:00 p.m., one day a week.
      Workshop Fee: $225.00 for a seven- week session.

Elf The Musical JR.

 

Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa's permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr.

 

Journey "under the sea" with Ariel and her aquatic friends in Disney's The Little Mermaid JR., adapted from Disney's Broadway production and the motion picture (featuring the enormously popular Academy Award-winning music and delightfully charming book and lyrics).

The Saga of Sweet Hannah Sue or Nobody's Perfekt

 

We find the town of Savannah and it's good citizens preparing for the marriage of Jones and Hannah. The cow people are on a cow hunt and the lactose intolerant Indians wander through. All is well until the heroes get glued to their horses. It must be Salty Sam and his six siblings. But wait! The villainous Salty Sam and Sam Jones are one and the same person! Which proves there's good in all of us. After all "nobody's perfect".
