(Incoming 1st-9th graders)
The delicious adventures experienced by Charlie Bucket on his visit to Willy Wonka's mysterious chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl's fantastical tale. Featuring the enchanting songs from the 1971 film starring Gene Wilder, in addition to a host of fun new songs, Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka KIDS is a scrumdidilyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone's sweet tooth.
Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka KIDS follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka 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 in the factory — or suffer the consequences.
Storytellers (K - 4th):
Storytelling has been used since the beginning of human history as a way to connect us all. In this class, students will act out folktales and fables with the use of puppetry and musical instruments, all while improving their acting skills. Students will design their own puppet, discover how sound enhances a story, and learn a brief history of how humans have told stories for hundreds of years.
Acting (4th - 12th):
From auditioning to the final performance, we will give our students the tools they need to successfully develop and perform a scene. Our professional actors will teach students how to have a successful audition while working on the who, where, why and how of character development, and then how to evolve their character for their final performance.

Our Show Choir Intensive class is perfect for those students who love to sing and dance! Our professional choreographer and voice instructor will create a one-of-a-kind performance piece using familiar songs from classic Broadway shows, such as Oliver, The Lion King, and Kiss Me Kate.
