LCAA 2018 Junior Arts Summer Theatre Workshop

Come be Part of Our World this summer!!

Summer 2018 will be the eleventh year of our very successful and popular Junior Arts Summer Workshop and we will be celebrating with another big Disney musical!! This summer we will be doing … Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Jr. This full-length musical is the Disney story everyone loves and includes all the memorable characters… Ariel, Sebastian, Ursula, King Triton, Prince Eric, Flounder, and dozens of sea creatures and merfolk. Roles for boys and girls of all ages! All participants enrolled in the workshop are guaranteed a role. This year, since we are doing a Disney musical, not every child will have a line, but every child will have music and choreography and will get to be a part of the Disney Magic! Students learn about musical theatre by participating in a real community theatre play from start to finish. Students will learn about many aspects of theatre including acting techniques, basic dance steps, basic musical terminology, singing in parts, character development, taking direction, and basic theatre terminology. They will be directed by a professional with over 40 years of experience in a quality production. This is the perfect opportunity for young actors of all skill levels to again valuable stage experience and be in a real musical!

Tuition is $190 plus a non-refundable deposit of $35. Deposit will hold slot until June when full balance is due. Full tuition must be paid by June 1 or slot will be forfeited. No child will be cast in a role without full payment of tuition. No refunds given on tuition after June 1. Due to the nature of this production, slots will be very limited… so don’t delay! We must have older kids in order for the show to work. Slots are limited to 45 kids ages 5-10 and 45 kids ages 11-21. Once those slots are full, we will start a waiting list. Older kids will play many of the larger roles. All the roles are super fun! Included in the tuition are: quality instruction by professional director, musical director and choreographer. Also included are music/script, poster, cookout cast party and a show t-shirt! Enrollment is limited so don’t delay!

SCHEDULE: Workshop rehearsals are held on Sunday afternoons in the 2:00-6:00 time frame or Saturday mornings in the 10:00-12:00 time frame and on Tuesday and Thursday evenings or Monday and Wednesday evenings in the 6:00-9:00 time frame. Actors will be given an exact rehearsal schedule after they are assigned to a cast. Each cast will rehearse three times a week. This will be determined after the first meeting which is “auditions.” Each cast will have three performances. Performance dates: July 22-July 29. Workshop begins June 10. (Skipping several days around July 4). Allowance is made for family vacations during the workshop as long as actors are present for the week of the production (Tech week). No exceptions will be made to this. Actors who are interested in lead roles must not miss more than a few (2-3) rehearsals. It is important to be there as much as possible, but we will work with you. Exact schedule and details will be emailed out and posted on the website several weeks prior to the start date.
