Hello and Happy January! Check out what’s coming up in the new year!
We’re calling all actors, singers, and dancers ages 8 and up to audition for Oliver! on January 5th. After running away from the orphanage run by the heartless Mr. Bumble, Oliver meets the Artful Dodger and is recruited to pick pockets for Fagin. There, Oliver finds a friend in Nancy, but neither she nor the boy is fit for a life of crime. Check out our audition page for details regarding the schedule and what to prepare for your audition.
Our Story Slam series is back in action on Friday, January 11th with the theme “Kansas: Love It/Hate It.” Live music begins at 7 pm and the slam starts at 7:30 pm. Never the same story, or evening, twice.
Also coming your way in January is our next production in the Theatre and Dance for the Very Young program, Goodnight Moon. Check out our amazing cast in the photo above and join us to experience a new musical adaptation of Margaret Wise Brown’s classic story on January 24-27! In this wild adventure, the objects and characters jump off the page, and the bunny’s bedroom comes to life. Suddenly, the cat and the fiddle, red balloon, clocks and socks, kittens and mittens, and the cow jumping over the moon are just a few of many springing into action. Developed in our Play Lab series, many of the designs you will see on stage were created with very young children as artistic partners in the process (check out a young artist in action in our featured image above). Proceeds from this performance support the Preschool/Kindergarten Financial Aid Fund.
Finally, we’ve got a brand new round of classes coming up in the School of Theatre and Music, with offerings for children as young as one year old all the way through adults. Just a few highlights are the return of the LAC Ukulele Orchestra, two new Play Labs for Baby Disco, our expanded series of Musical Theatre, Improv, and Acting intensives, and a new range of classes for 1st-4th graders! Come take a class with us!
