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. Last spring the students mounted their production of The Wizard of Oz. 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.
