We’ve decided to split our beginner/intermediate class into two seperate classes to accommodate younger students as an introduction to musical theatre. This class is for the beginner aged 5-9, who has no musical theatre experience.  Students will learn songs and simple choreography, but will have very few lines to learn. Basic theatre movements and singing, expression of feelings and telling stories through movement and dance will be emphasized.

Synopsis of The Little Mermaid, JRJourney “under the sea” with Ariel and her aquatic friends, adapted from Disney’s Broadway production and the motion picture (featuring the enormously popular Academy Award-winning music). Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories, Disney’s The Little Mermaid JR. is an enchanting look at the sacrifices we all make for love and acceptance. In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home – and her fins – behind and live in the world above. But first, she’ll have to defy her father, King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, and convince the handsome Prince Eric that she’s the girl whose enchanting voice he’s been seeking.

We’ve decided to split our beginner/intermediate class into two seperate classes to accommodate younger students aged 7-11 who have some experience, but aren’t quite ready for the competitive troupe. This class is for those with some experience in musical theater and will focus 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. There will be two 30-minute performances on-stage with costumes and props the weekend following the last class.

Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon KIDS is an adaptation of the fourth of Mary Pope Osborne’s award-winning fantasy adventure books from the Magic Tree House book series. This time around, Jack and Annie’s tree house takes them to an exotic island with pirates, where the two discover the power of friendship and the simple pleasures in everyday life.  The siblings meet Captain Bones, a mean old pirate who captures the two and forces them to help him find buried treasure. It’s up to Jack and Annie to find their way back to the tree house and make their way home.
