This year we will be staging “Pirates! The Musical”, an adventure-packed musical set on the high seas - arrrrr matey!
This program is intended for students ages 8-12, no previous vocal experience necessary.
There is a part for everyone!
Vocal Director: Keisha Mowchenko
Stage Manager: Erica McFadden
Additional Support: Jacqueline Fetter
Students will be guided through the process of staging a musical, including learning an overview of the production, auditioning, working and rehearsing with their peers, proper vocal and musical theatre technique, helping to envision costuming, set, and props, and meeting with guest instructors to finesse their acting and choreography. At the end, we will stage our production during Easter break week for friends, family, and the public to enjoy!
Students who are interested in helping with set design and costumes will also have the opportunity to contribute, but will not be required to.
Programming starts with a full-day retreat on Sunday, November 19th, 10:00am - 3:00pm. Students will learn an overview of the production, get to know their peers, and immerse themselves in the world of musical theatre! All students will receive a part, possibly even two!
