The intermediate troupe is for younger students aged 7-11 who have some performance experience. The focus is on developing a deeper understanding of story-telling through movement, music and the art of vocal expression. Staging concepts will be used regularly and students will be expected to attend most rehearsals. The intermediate class has two performances on the stage at Avondale Towne Cinema.

Synopsis:  Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka KIDS follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats, but the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory – or suffer the consequences.

The Competitive Troupe is an audition-based musical theatre troupe for students aged 10 to 18, who have performance experience. Students receive instruction from our award-winning director Shell Ramirez and choreographer Maria LaNave-Johnson. Students gain experience in all aspects of musical theatre production, including vocal training, choreography and acting techniques. We produce two full musicals per year, one in the fall and one in the spring.  

Synopsis:  Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek.  One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he’s handed a task – if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn’t be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.

Classes are held in the upstairs studio at Core Dance, on the square in Decatur,
