Summer Production Update
It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel our summer production of Matilda. These are uncertain times and we truly do not know how long the social distancing and shelter at home orders will be in place. As many of you understand, putting on a show of this scale is a year-long process. Due to the recent shut down of our country, it has put us behind in several areas of planning and execution for the summer production. Unfortunately, it is no longer feasible to put on a production of this scale by late July.
The summer show experience is one that we hold so dear as we know many of you do. It has become a yearly tradition for many staff, students, and parents and one that we look forward to all year long. We are heartbroken, but know that there are bigger things happening in our world that we need to focus on!
Although we cannot put on a large scale production, we want our actors to be able to continue to grow in their love of the performing arts, experience the bonding and camaraderie with their fellow cast mates, and bring some light and joy into the world! We've added a new camp this summer specifically geared toward our more advanced middle school and high school students called "Broadway Boot Camp". This camp is an elevated version of our regular week long camps. We will be offering speciality masterclasses in theatre, music, and dance as well as putting together a short film to showcase all that we have learned throughout the week. We have added space to this camp to allow all our "summer production regulars" to register and still get some theatre in their life this summer!
We hope that all the actors originally intending to audition for Matilda will participate in this new summer camp experience or one of our other week long Musical Summer Camps. It is our goal to help make your summer fun, educational, and build memories that will last a lifetime for the actors and everyone invovled!
Wishing you the best of health,
