The Youth program offers the unique opportunity for every student to participate in every show, with no double casting. We do not mandate parent volunteer hours or require parents to purchase a certain number of tickets. We focus our musical theatre training by teaching the basics of singing, dancing, and acting. Our originally-written workshop shows culminate in a fun performance for the community, family, and friends.
In the Youth Workshops, there are no lead roles; everyone has lines, several dances, and songs to learn*. Students experience working with adult "Guest Artists" who serve as mentors, many of whom are former students themselves. Students experience a full "tech week" with lights, live musicians, costumes, and props, which starts the Sunday before the show. And of course - the SHOWS!
* With Disney or other productions that we do not write ourselves, not every student will have lines. Those productions put more focus on an ensemble.
Class Times: 5:00-8:00 p.m., one day a week.
Workshop Fee: $235.00 for a seven- week session.
Based on one of the most treasured Disney animated films of all time, and featuring some of the world’s most memorable songs, Disney’s Sleeping Beauty KIDS is pure, delightful fun.
It's Princess Aurora's sixteenth birthday, and three fairies — Flora, Fauna and Merryweather — must use their magic to save her from the spell of the evil sorceress, Maleficent! The fairies ensure that Aurora falls into a deep sleep that can only be ended with a kiss from her betrothed, Prince Phillip. To prevent Phillip from rescuing Aurora, Maleficent kidnaps and imprisons him. The good fairies are the last hope to free Phillip so that he can awaken Aurora.
This classic fairy tale comes to life in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty KIDS, which features many roles for a large chorus, from King Stefan and Queen Stefanie's loyal subjects to Maleficent's slimy goons... as well as other fairies and animals.
