Sleeping Beauty

CLASS DESCRIPTION

This fun & interactive theater class for our elementary-aged students will provide a supportive, creative environment in which to hone the young actor’s skills. As they discover and develop their unique strengths and talents, they’ll work towards putting them together in a fun, creative and expressive way; and they’ll build confidence too. Under the guidance of theatre professionals, actors will learn lines, create characters, and construct costumes based on the beloved fairytale, “Sleeping Beauty,” which was tailored especially for their age group. The class culminates in ticketed finale performances at a local venue. 

ABOUT THE SHOW

Larry the fish tells an overjoyed King and Queen that they are to be blessed with a daughter. Unfortunately, at the christening the evil fairy Oksana places a curse on the young princess: she will prick her finger opening a tin of baked beans on her sixteenth birthday with terrible consequences. Only the bravest of knights can lift the enchantment – and George has to overcome some of his own fears before he can rescue the princess.  This modern take on the classic fairytale will be fun & inspiring to produce with our youngest actors!

PRODUCING A SHOW DURING THE CURRENT ENVIRONMENT:

All rehearsals will be held in-person in a large space that promotes social distancing (especially when the students are not onstage).  The location for the rehearsals is Duneland Community Church in Chesterton.  For rehearsals, we will encourage students to wear masks onstage and (especially) offstage.  For performances, students will not be able to wear masks onstage (unless there are extenuating circumstances) but we will try to create as much space backstage to encourage social distancing when the students are not performing.

THE SHOW PACKAGE INCLUDES: 

  • Instruction in acting and stage movement movement taught by trained and experienced Theatre Professionals (20+ hours of training!)
  • Workshops in storytelling, costume design, and character development
  • All Show Fees (i.e. Licensing, Sets, Venue, etc.)
