WINTER SERIES 2014-2015
A Broadway musical revue starring kids in 1-5th grade. This will be a one hour Broadway extravaganza of songs that were made famous on Broadway by kids. Singing, dancing and acting our hearts for an hour. We will hold auditions for everyone in this age group but we will only cast 15 cast members total. If there is a high demand for this show and program we will cast a separate group that will have their own performance dates.
SHOW DATES: Jan 9th and 10th
You know this show! Who doesn’t! Enough said other than I am so excited to be directing this show for the first time ever. This will be for boys and girls in 6-8th grade. We will hold auditions for everyone in this age group but we will only cast 15 cast members total. If there is a high demand for this show and program we will cast a separate group that will have their own performance dates.
SHOW DATES: Jan. 16th & 17th
This was our high school production this winter. GREASE is a favorite among rock and roll fans of all ages. Here is Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding “Burger Palace Boys” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies” in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their “Summer Nights” as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as “Greased Lightnin'”, “It’s Raining on Prom Night”, “Alone at the Drive-In Movie” recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. An 8-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals along with innumerable school and community productions place Grease among the world’s most popular musicals.
SPRING SERIES 2015

SEUSSICAL THE MUSICAL (PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTION)
The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo,
a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge–not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
