While our West End Theatre will remain closed to in-person drama classes this Fall 2020 semester, we are excited to announce that we will be offering an online musical to rehearse and perform with our Magic Beanstalk Players!
This production entitled "The Big One-Oh! Online Edition," is a triumphant musical for the whole family based on the book written by Academy Award-winner Dean Pitchford. The new kid in town, Charley Maplewood, has never been one for parties – that would require friends, which he doesn’t have. Well, unless you count his monster friends, but they’re only imaginary. But now that he’s turning ten—the big one-oh—he decides to throw a birthday party for himself, complete with a “House of Horrors” theme. Of course, things don’t work out as he plans. Will Charley be able to pull it together before the big one-oh . . . becomes the big OH-NO!?
This production is open to third through eighth grade students. Students will need access to the internet for weekly rehearsals, and will need to be in a space where they can move freely and sing at full voice. Scripts will be distributed virtually. The production will be prerecorded, and broadcast to the public on November 20, 21 & 22.
Rehearsals: Wednesdays from 3:30-4:30 starting September 9th
Tuition: $100 per student (Tuition assistance is available for qualifying families)
