We are seeking  a diverse cast to represent the most accurate picture of 21st century America that we possibly can. This show will question what aspects of American history and culture deserve our patriotism and how we might re-frame the "American Dream" for the future. We will be looking for a lot of input from the cast to supply thematic talking points. If this sounds serious, it is. But don't worry - as always our number one goal is to produce great entertaining theater. Songs choices will be made from composers such as Leonard Berstein (West Side Story), Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton / In The Heights), Michael John LaChiusa (First Lady Suite), Ahrens & Flaherty (Ragtime), Jason Robert Brown (Parade) and many more. 

Summer Workshop Musical (2nd - 8th grade): KAMP KAOS 
Directed by Mary Scarlata Rowe
This year's musical production is Kamp Kaos by Steven Murray. Participants will enjoy the full production experience in this 3 week theater workshop!

Actors will use the rehearsal process to directly apply skills that are learned and developed throughout the workshop in order to perform a full show on the last day!

The full day workshop is 3 weeks for actors grades 4-8 (includes those entering grades 4 and entering grade 9 in the fall). Monday - Friday, 9 am - 3 pm. 

The 1/2 day workshop is 2 weeks for actors grades 2-3rd (includes those entering grades 2 in the fall). Monday - Friday 12:30 pm - 3 pm 

Tuition includes a T-Shirt and DVD of the performance. Two public performances will be held on July 27th.

Confusion and fun are the business of the day at Kamp KAOS, a summer camp that boasts its own 12-watt radio station. It's opening day at the camp and director Wally Schneider is already in trouble: the mortgage is due, the world's wealthiest woman wants to buy the camp, the county health inspector is coming, and the mysterious weather phenomenon El Gordo has brought a migration of mice! When Wally accidentally eats cheese laced with sedative, it's up to the wacky gang of counselors and campers to save the day. This one-set musical can easily expand or contract to the number of actors available. The otherwise rock-and-roll tinged score includes a contrapuntal march, the Gilbert-and-Sullivanesque "Wally's Life Story," the waltz to greed, "Give Me More," a "hat and cane" vaudeville tune about practical jokes, a ghost story, and the rousing "Save the Day."'
