Fairytale Players | $100* – FULL

Mondays, January 30 – April 3, 2023 |  4:30 p.m. – 6 p.m.

Ages 10 – 13

Doesn’t everyone want to live a fairytale life where good triumphs over evil? Now you can by learning basic theatre skills through rehearsing and performing a familiar fairy tale for friends and family. The Not So Mysterious Disappearance of Cinderella is a hilarious new version of Cinderella offers up a much more contemporary twist to the old tale. This time, Cinderella goes missing and everyone in the kingdom is a suspect. Packed with humor, fresh takes on classic characters, and plenty of pop-culture references, students will learn all about creating a story for the stage. Instructor: Tina Paukstelis


Broadway Bound | $100* – FULL

Wednesdays, February 1 – April 5, 2023  | 4:30 p.m. – 6 p.m.

Ages 6 – 9

Students will learn the skills of a “triple threat”- singing, dancing, and acting – all while diving into fun! A fun-filled mini musical lets students expand their creativity and guides them through the process as budding performers. In Welcome to the Jungle, we join Tumbili the monkey, Tembo the elephant, Kiboko the hippo, Twiga the giraffe, and the rest of the jungle gang for a very special adventure. A group of storytellers narrate the story of Panya, a tiny mouse who uses her charm to escape the claws of Maliki, a ferocious lion. It’s a story of promises kept and friendships made and written especially for young performers. Instructor: Rylie Armantrout
