This fun & intensive musical theatre performance camp is designed for theater-loving students to develop their confidence, character and presentation skills through ensemble performance. Open to all actors, regardless of previous performing experience, this program encourages aspiring artists and future audiences through a wide array of classes, workshops and experiences. Our staff of experienced Theatre Professionals work closely with the actors to immerse our cast in an active rehearsal process that features an authorized, age-appropriate script and score from the popular Broadway show (& movie!) that enables all actors to successfully stretch their skills regardless of his/her experience level. The program culminates in one weekend of ticketed, public performances at a local venue.
ABOUT THE SHOW
CATS is set amongst a larger-than-life junkyard playground and is alive with purr-fect felines, including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees, Macavity, Jennyanydots, Old Deuteronomy, Skimbleshanks and Grizabella. The Jellicle Cats come out to play on one special night of the year—the night of the Jellicle Ball. One by one, they tell their stories for the amusement of Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of the Cats to ascend to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life. CATS: Young Actors Edition is a one-hour adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical, specially tailored for young actors.
