FULL DAY SESSION- AGES 9- YOUNG ADULT
Based on Meredith Willson’s six-time-Tony-Award-winning musical comedy, The Music Man KIDS features some of musical theatre’s most iconic songs and a story filled with wit, warmth and good old-fashioned romance. The Music Man is family entertainment at its best – a bold, brassy show that will have the whole town atwitter!
Master showman Harold Hill is in town and he’s got “seventy-six trombones” in tow. Can upright, uptight Marian, the town librarian, resist his powerful allure? The story follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize. The catch? He doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, whose belief in Harold’s power just might help him succeed in the end in spite of himself.

LifeLight Youth Theatre's Summer Performing Arts VIRTUAL Camps-
In each “Virtual Broadway Performance Workshops” students will be instructed in acting for the camera, characterization, improv, dance, choreography, proper vocal technique, learning musical numbers, building the set & props, create believable characters, establish objectives and obstacles and dissect scenes by being in workshop sessions and going through the rehearsal/performance process.
While this year Lion King and Annie Broadway Performing Arts Virtual Summer Camps looks a bit different, your directors can’t wait to rise to the challenge of moving these magical productions online with our summer campers. We hope that you are as excited to tell these stories with the new tools we have as we are. Note that with these small and intimate casts and our online platform, there will be tons of opportunities for each actor to showcase their skills in featured moments and solos- we have so much planned for each of you! With smaller casts comes so much opportunity for small group and one-on-one instruction from your directors, plus we’ll be exploring set, costume and makeup design from home as a cast in addition to our usual summer curriculum. Many of you will also have the opportunity to explore multiple characters. We are so excited to have you join us for what is sure to be an exciting summer program!
The online curriculum will include coaching and rehearsals of all the show material, from music and lines to learning how to act on film, culminating in a video production featuring your child(ren)! You will see your child learn new skills in the musical theater arena from the safety of your home, using the same equipment you may have already been using for your child's school. If you have seen the recent Disney singalong, or other current online performances, then you probably already know the wonderful potential of an online show.
How will this work? The children will meet daily through the Zoom app (video conferencing) to learn the show and all the theater education we can pack in to create a great show. After getting their parts down, each child will video and upload their performance with the guidance of our creative team. Then, with the students’ input, our fabulous technical crew will implement their design and compile the parts into a full video performance for all of us to enjoy at our virtual Watch Party! We can't wait to see the children shine on video!
What can you expect from a typical camp day? You can expect your child to be online an average of 2 hours for group instruction and an additional 1 for individual lessons/small group rehearsals per day. An extra hour will be added to two afternoons for special enrichment guests. An extra hour will be added to two afternoons for the students to record their sections of the show at home with the guidance of the Director/Creative Team.
