Two Great Shows One Musical for Grades 1-8 One Straight Play For Grades 7-12 This year's winter workshop will feature 2 great shows. The participation fee is $40.
Our musical, "Tom Sawyer and Company," is for grades 1 through 8. In this version of the classic American novel by Mark Twain, the music is graded appropriately and will be fun and easy. ALL students who audition for this show have a place! Rehearsals will be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. beginning January 22.
Also, KPAC Young Artists will do "Just Like Us" for grades 7 through 12. This is not a musical and is considered an "audition-only" show in that there is a fairly fixed number of roles without much extra room. It is a dramatic piece in which love overcomes prejudice in a world where the "Blues" and the "Greens" dislike each other, based largely upon misunderstandings and false information. Rehearsals will be on Monday and Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. beginning January 21.
Special note for 7th and 8th grade students. We would suggest that 7th and 8th graders audition for both shows (unless you prefer to be in a musical). Those cast in "Just Like Us" will not be cast in "Tom Sawyer and Company," and the reverse is true.
Cast members in "Just Like Us" can, however, work on crew for the musical.
Performance note: Please notice that the performance dates are the Friday and Saturday before the week of Spring Break. Please consider your Spring Break plans before auditioning.
