This program teaches kids all about drama and creative expression. The fall semester focuses on drama skills, improvisation, characterization, stage presence, story-telling, performing scenes and monologues, etc. Throughout the spring semester, students utilize these skills by working together to create a full-scale musical production. The students recently mounted The Wizard of Oz production. It was a huge success! This program also offers a summer day camp.
Spring Production Information
This spring the Magic Beanstalk Players will present Willy Wonka Jr.!
This scrumdidilyumptious musical follows everyone’s favorite candymaker, Willy Wonka, as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever finds these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka chocolate factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats, but the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka's rules of the factory – or suffer the consequences.
AUDITIONS (for 3rd-8th graders) will be held December 13th from 3:30-5:30 at the West End Theatre. All students who wish to participate will get a part.
Students will read selected dialogue from the show for auditions. This is a musical, so students who would like to audition for a solo should be prepared to sing. Songs from the show are encouraged, but any song will do! Students may sing acapella.
K-2 grade students- Drama class resumes January 8th, and will be held every Tuesday from 3:30-4:30. Students will continue to learn theatre skills in addition to rehearsing for their part in Willy Wonka.
3rd-8th grade students- Should audition on Dec. 13th, then rehearsals start the second week of January. We anticipate two casts this year. Rehearsals will either be Wednesdays 3:30-5:00 or Thursdays 3:30-5:00.
The show is April 12, 13 & 14, 2019
