Showstoppers is a musical based recreational program designed to give the quiet performer a voice and the energetic performer focus. The fun and merriment help literature come to life for young actors, K – 1st grade, and audiences alike!
Does your child turn a playground into a pirate ship, make their bed into a castle, or create countless adventures with their toys? If so, then it’s time to introduce them to other imaginative children in Showstoppers, named for the funnest song in a musical production.
Through creative scripts, adapted to provide equal roles and equal stage time, performers learn how to become storytellers. They turn what's inside their imagination out to audiences so that all may enjoy their unique creativity. Adapted stories carry cultural, social, and/or moral themes kids are typically introduced to at this early age. Each season, performers present their work for friends and family, supported by their director every inch of the way. Our recreational theater classes foster teamwork and cast bonding while instilling confidence in class and on stage.
Rapunzel, a musical adaptation based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, is no love story. It’s a tale of friendship and family. It starts with a girl, traded at birth, and locked away in a tower. Her hair was so long it was the perfect place for the witch to hide her magic. Rapunzel didn’t know she was a princess until a group of thieves entered her tower and the Witch’s scheme was foiled. Wonderful characters make up this ensemble cast such as the royal family, Rapunzel’s woodland friends, and a band of hilarious thieves who aren’t very skilled at being criminals.
