This fun & intensive musical theatre performance camp is designed for theater-loving students to develop their confidence, character and presentation skills through ensemble performance. Open to all actors, regardless of previous performing experience, this program encourages aspiring artists and future audiences through a wide array of classes, workshops and experiences. Our staff of experienced Theatre Professionals work closely with the actors to immerse our young cast in an active rehearsal process that features an authorized, age-appropriate script and score from the popular Broadway show (& movie!) that enables all actors to successfully stretch their skills regardless of his/her experience level. The program culminates in one weekend of ticketed, public performances at a local venue.
About The Show:
When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.
To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 17 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
