Our Education Institute is back and bigger than ever this year with Peter Pan Jr!
Based on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale and featuring an unforgettable score by Morris “Moose” Charlap and Jule Styne with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh and Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Peter Pan is one of the most beloved and frequently performed family favorites of all time. This high-flying Tony Award-winning musical has been performed around the world and delighted audiences for 60 years and is now adapted for young performers.
Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, the fierce Brave Girls, a band of bungling pirates, and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook.
Featuring the iconic songs, “I’m Flying,” “I’ve Gotta Crow,” “I Won’t Grow Up” and “Never Never Land,” and a rousing book full of magic, warmth, and adventure, Peter Pan JR. is the perfect show for the child in all of us… who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up. P
What is an Education Institute?
Campers will study basic theatre, voice, and dance concepts while working on getting the show performance-ready. While each child that registers for the institute will have a role in the show, students will go through an audition and callback process. Our performance institute is the perfect outlet for children to make their theatrical debut, or to further enhance their performance skills. Tuition covers the cost of supplies needed for each child, as well as a show t-shirt to take home after the show.
Our first cast meeting will be held on Thursday, August 17 at 6 PM. Parents are asked to attend with their children for an informational meeting and to complete required paperwork. After this, students will learn a short movement combination and vocal selection as part of their placement audition. They will be released throughout the night as they are finished auditioning.
Rehearsals will take place Monday-Friday evenings between the hours of 6-8 PM, with some of the cast staying until 9 PM.
Performances will be September 28-29 at 7 PM and September 30 at 3 PM and 7 PM, and October 5-6 at 7 PM, and October 7 at 3 PM and 7 PM.
Cast members will rehearse Monday through Friday evenings between the hours of 6-9 PM. Not every cast member will be asked to attend every day. Detailed rehearsal schedules will be released weekly.
All students should be prepared to list all possible conflicts on the day of the first cast meeting. Students are required to be at every performance, no exceptions.
For students ages 9-18: these cast members will rehearse 3-5 days a week.
Student Tuition: $87.50/75 for MCT Members
For students ages 6-8: these cast members will rehearse 1-2 days a week. Space is limited for this age group… do not wait to register!
Student Tuition: $35/$30 for MCT Members
