EXTRA: July 5-7, 2017 | 3-Day Add-On Workshop | 9:00 am-4:00 pm

The spotlight is on YOU in this interactive do-it-yourself musical revue! In just ten days, students will write, act, and produce an original musical revue, “jukebox musical” style, under the guidance of professional actors, dancers, and musicians. Each student will be placed in one or more ensemble scenes selected to showcase his or her talents -- students get to choose their level of involvement in the show.

This unique program seeks to empower young people through educating them in the skills of performing on stage – singing, dancing, acting, creating, and producing. The skills learned in StageIt! DIY Musical Revue will benefit any student who participates in musical theater productions in their schools and communities. Students will be grouped in classes/rehearsals by skill level and age (elementary, middle school, high school).

Meet the directors: Sue Bonito and Rob Woodin
