Summer Programs 2016

CAST Application – Summer 2016

The CAST program introduces students to basic stage technique using creative dramatics, music and movement. Through positive reinforcement, students learn to respect others’ work, create scenes as an ensemble and work with a director, musical director, and choreographer. This program helps build self-confidence and communication and collaboration skills among younger students. Students will perform in an end-of-week showcase

One Act Plays – Each week CAST will produce a show to be staged Friday afternoon – Script-in-Hand.  On Monday everyone that has signed up for that week will audition for a role in that week’s show – and everyone has a role.  We rehearse each day working on character development, blocking, and use of props.  Toward the end of the week we add sets, lighting, and sound.  On Friday afternoon the show will be performed Script-in-Hand for an audience of family, friends, and neighborhood children.

Cinderella Tales: Cinderella is the heroine of the world’s most popular fairy tale with more than 900 versions, every culture has a variation. The Glass Slipper — the European version of Cinderella.   A young girl, with the magical intervention of her fairy god mother, escapes from her step family to attend the Prince’s Ball, but only until midnight. As she flees the Ball she loses a glass slipper the Prince finds it and uses its unique size to find her again

Rumpelstiltskin: Our almost traditional tale of a Miller’s Daughter who gets caught up in a tale about spinning straw into gold. When the King orders her to spin the straw into gold she realizes that only magic can save her.  But, when the magical, maniacal, schizophrenic, wood gnome Rumpelstiltskin makes its appearance she has not been saved, but doomed.  Rumpelstiltskin is played by not one actor, but several!
