Winter / Spring 2019: Classes


"ELVES" (ages 4-5)

The tiny Thumbelina and the teeny Tom Thumb join up for fun! Tom tries to make his fortune with the help of Timothy the Turtle and Leap the Frog. Then Beatrice the Butterfly takes Thumbelina to visit the Princess of the Petals where they learn an amazing secret. It all becomes a party when the very silly Jitterbugs show up! Join us and you’ll see the smallest of the small can have the biggest fun!

This musical is just right for non-readers who love to play-act and pretend. The class also plays lots of fun imagination games in a gentle environment.

There they meet some new friends, like a Baby Lion Cub and a Fashionista Scarecrow, along with a Golden Robot Boy and the lovely Princess Ozma. Now they must save Oz from the wicked Nome King and restore Ozma to the throne, in an exhilarating adventure full of magic, comedy and excitement!

"CENTAURS" (ages 8-12)

Some young people, hoping for stardom, suddenly find themselves on the Silver Screen in famous Hollywood musicals from Broadway’s best! They discover there’s no business like show business in Annie, Get Your Gun, learn the art of film comedy in Singin’ In The Rain, and marvel at the World’s Fair in Meet Me in St. Louis. But when they get sucked into Grease, can they rock out and make their dreams of fame come true? Great shows, hilarious characters, and incredible solo songs. Star in your own mini Hollywood musical!

This musical gives every student a star-turn. Plus exciting theater exercises that build confidence and creativity in a supportive, lively setting.
