Using the knowledge and skills they gain in class, students will collaborate to produce two productions. During the fall semester they will produce the musical, A Charlie Brown Christmas. During the spring semester students will perform in Disney’s The Aristocats KIDS. All students enrolled in the class will be cast in the production. After auditions and casting have concluded, all students will begin to gain the powerful hands on experience of producing a play or musical. Rehearsals will be held during their normal class time, with the possibility of a few extra rehearsals being called the weeks leading up to the performances.
We offer three sections of this class, each at a different location. Please enroll in the section that works best for you.
Classes for the 2021-2022 Season begin the week of August 30, 2021.
Tuition is $55 per month (K-2nd) and $65 (2nd-8th). Students taking more than one class (i.e. Junior Players and a dance class) will receive a discounted rate on additional classes.
In addition to the monthly tuition, there is also a $60 Production Fee due each semester, as well as an annual $25 Enrollment Fee. The Production Fee helps cover the cost of show royalties, scripts, costumes, sets, props, etc.
Toward the end of each semester, students in Junior Players may be called on a Saturday to rehearse with the entire cast. During the week of the show they will be called for extended, mandatory rehearsals at the theater.
Students should wear clothes which allow for ease of movement to class.
Performances for A Charlie Brown Christmas will be December 10-12, 2021 and performances for Disney’s The Aristocat KIDS will be May 13-14, 2022 at the Loft Theatre at the ArtWorks Academy Main Campus in Norman, which is located at 3251 Market Place.
Tickets will be $8 each. They will go on sale a week or two before the show. Parents will receive an email with instructions on how to purchase tickets.
