Immerse yourself in a world of show tunes. Join the cast of the main production, create an original rock opera, hone your soloist talents in a cabaret class, and even improvise an entire musical. You can fill every period of the day rehearsing, creating and performing music theater.
SHOWTUNES: Ages 8-11 (Limit 16) Let your voice be heard! In this class, we will learn classic and contemporary show tunes from Broadway and beyond that introduce young actors to singing in a group and using choreography to set a scene and tell a story. This troupe will experience the fun of connecting with each other on stage while making music. We will perform a combination of full and small group songs on festival day. (period 1)
PRODUCTION: Ages 12-15 (Limit 45) The big musical is performed the evening before and the evening of Festival Day on our enchanting outdoor Festival Stage. Our productions feature fabulous costumes, sets, a staff pit orchestra and professional lighting/sound. Campers must commit to TWO PERIODS (2nd and 3rd) of rehearsal time. The last week of each session will include evening rehearsals. Auditions take place on the first two days of each session. For the audition, prepare a short poem or reading and a song (no sheet music necessary!). (periods 2 and 3)
CABARET: Ages 12-15 (Limit 8) Perform musical scenes in the style of a cabaret. You will play specific characters. You will sing solos and duets with harmony and counterpoint. You will perform songs from Broadway shows such as Ragtime, Miss Saigon, Cabaret, Last 5 Years, Wicked, Spring Awakening, etc. You will have a blast! Come prepared with a song to sing on the 1st day, preferably with sheet music (You can sing the same song for the Production audition). (period 5)
ROCK OPERA: Ages 12-15 (Limit 16) If you love comedy and spoofing musicals, you will love Rock Opera. Celebrate the musical form by creating an original outrageously funny musical. The writing and rehearsal process is as fun as the final show. Think Rent. Think Hair. Think Wicked. Now think again. (period 6)
