Program Description

The Junior Musical Ensemble class is for our elementary school-aged actors who are serious about putting on a full musical production with sets, costumes, music, and lights! The rehearsal process begins with ensemble-building, and grows from the actors’ ideas, movements, and stories. We will spend the first 2 weeks learning musical theatre basics through singing, dancing, games, and exercises. Then we will move into reading and singing through the whole script. By the end of our second week, our director will share casting choices with each child in the ensemble. Some parts will have more lines or less singing than others, but we are committed to devising this production together and hearing all of the incredible ideas in the rehearsal room. In the following weeks, we will build our musical performance, showcasing the ensemble’s unique abilities as actors, singers, and dancers. Rehearsals will be broken up into acting/blocking, choreography, and musical/vocal sessions each week. After all this work, we will share our production with friends, family, and our local community at the Mark O’Donnell Theater. The fully produced musical will have sets, lights, and costumes in a 80-seat black-box theater. All cast members receive a script and signed poster.

Actors must attend all tech rehearsals and performances. Tech is on June 5th and 6th from 4-7 PM. Performances are on June 7th at 6:30 PM, June 8th at 3:30 PM and 6:30 PM, and June 9th at 3:30 PM. Actors are called to performances 90 minutes before showtime.

Disney’s Peter Pan Jr. is presented through special arrangement with Music Theater International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. mtishows.com
