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.
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is an enchanted musical adaptation of the classic story. Dorothy is transported by tornado from her small town in Kansas to the mysterious world of Oz where Munchkins, Witches, Wizards and other extravagant mythical creatures either help or hinder Dorothy's journey to get back to her family in Kansas. The Wizard of Oz is a story about friendship, family and the idea that there's "no place like home".
Performers will be welcomed to the jungles of India where Mowgli, a young and mischievous human, is being raised by wolves. The elders of the jungle, Bagheera the panther and Sheer Khan the tiger, wish for Mowgli to return to the man village. Hearing the news, Mowgli runs away and thus the search begins. Mowgli makes friends such as Baloo the bear and enemies such as Kaa the snake. Eventually, Mowgli must accept fate and say goodbye to jungle friends and hello to human family.
