Performance Workshops

Performance Workshop students go through the entire process of putting on a musical from auditions to performance. Students will learn dialogue, music and choreography in preparation to perform a full scale or junior style show.

The Performance Workshops come in multiple levels based on age group and experience.

Our Performance Workshops are inclusive, and we accept all students regardless of performance background until the workshop fills. Previous Performance Workshop productions include; Xanadu, Carrie, Godspell, Legally Blonde, Urinetown, Peter Pan Jr., Thouroghly Modern Millie, Jr.

Peter and the Starcatcher

Session dates: July 23-August 12, 2018

A Play by Rick Elice, Music by Wayne Barker. Based on the Novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson

Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love. A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure. There are over 100 unforgettable characters, played by an ensemble of actors.This play (with music) uses ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination to bring the story to life.

Ages 13-20 (younger with permission)

The Summer Workshop is an inclusive program and students will be accepted until all available spaces fill.

Hair

Session dates: June 28-July 29, 2018

Book and Lyrics by Gerome Ragni & James Rado, Music by Galt MacDermot

The story of a group of young Americans searching for love and peace during the Vietnam era, Hair is at once both a joyous celebration of youth and a poignant journey through a very tumultuous time. Exploring ideas of
identity, community, global responsibility and peace, the themes and struggles in Hair remain vital and relevant to the times we live in today. Hair features an eclectic score filled with classics, including “Aquarius,” “Let the
Sun Shine In,” “Good Morning, Starshine” and “Easy To Be Hard.” Hair was nominated at the 1969 Tony Award for Best Musical and won a Grammy the same year for Best Score from an Original Cast Show Album. The
2009 revival production won the Tony Award for Best Musical Revival and also received the Drama Desk, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical.

Please be advised that this production contains strong language and explores mature themes. Hair is rated strong PG-15 for frank depictions/discussions of: politics, sex, drug use, abuse, profanity, war, and death. There will not, of course, be nudity in this student production.
