Fairytale Land has been turned upside down!!
Summer 2014 will be the seventh year of our very successful and popular Junior Arts Summer Workshop, and this year's workshop promises to be super fun! The play will be an original story written by Debra E. Leopard called Little Red Riding Hood and the (not so) Big Bad Wolf. This full-length play was produced several years ago during the summer workshop and has been embellished with new characters and much more comedy. The tale takes place in Fairytale Land, run by Mother Goose, who is in dire need of a vacation! While she is gone, the trouble-making Brownies cause total chaos in the land, and everything gets mixed up. Many familiar characters, and some brand new ones, including a brunette Goldilocks, a Used Car Salesman Big Bad Wolf, Rapper Three Bears, Grumpy Cinderella, a Wicked Witch turned cheerleader, Cowardly Lion turned Boxer, Firefighting Scarecrow... and so on. Lots of great roles for both boys and girls! Participants in the workshop will audition and are guaranteed a speaking role. Students learn about theatre by participating in a real community theatre play from start to finish. Students will learn about many aspects of theatre including acting techniques, character development, taking direction, and basic theatre terminology. They will be directed by a professional with over 37 years of experience in a quality production. This is the perfect opportunity for young actors of all skill levels to again valuable stage experience!
Tuition is $185 plus a non-refundable deposit of $25.
Also included are a pizza party and a show t-shirt!
Enrollment is limited so don't delay!
