MUSICAL THEATRE PERFORMANCE CAMP

Our campers have the exciting opportunity to produce a full-scaled musical in just two weeks! Each session will lead its participants through auditioning, choreography, staging, and music vocal rehearsals. Parents, family and friends are invited to the see the production on the last day of camp.

SESSION 1: MADAGASCAR – A MUSICAL ADVENTURE

Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the hip hip Hippo and, of course, those hilarious, plotting penguins as they bound onto your stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime. Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar – A Musical Adventure JR. follows all of your favorite crack-a-lackin’ friends as they escape from their home in New York’s Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar.

Ages: 7-10 / Performance June 15 / 6:30 p.m.

SESSION 2: DISNEY’S THE LION KING JR.

PLAY PRODUCTION FOR KIDS CAMP

Every young actor’s chance to be a star! Students in this camp experience the entire play production process, from auditions and learning lines to dress rehearsals and performances. At the end of the program, participants present an all-kids-production. In this special program, students learn theatre skills and gain acting experience through hands-on participation in the production process. On with the show!

SESSION 3: ALICE IN WONDERLAND

After Alice tumbles down a mysterious rabbit hole, she finds herself in a strange land where everyone is raving mad. With the help of a Cheshire Cat, an astute Caterpillar, and a righteous Humpty Dumpty, Alice must find her way home and discover who she really is. A darker, more faithful version of Lewis Carroll's classic tale that reimagines the experience of Wonderland, and ends with an unexpected new twist.

Ages: 7-10 / Performance July 20 / 6:30 p.m.

SESSION 4: THE VERY UNMERRY ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD

Sherwood Forest is in danger of being destroyed and it's up to Robin and his band of dimwitted Merry Men to save the day. When the Sheriff challenges them to a contest to determine the forest's rightful owner, their skills are put to the test. Unfortunately, archery is only the first round. Robin and his men will also have to win a talent show and a beauty pageant. Will this be the end of Sherwood? Most likely.
