Enrollment Now Open for Light Opera Works' 2014 Summer Workshops

Light Opera Works is currently taking enrollments for the 2014 Musical Theater Summer Workshop. Young people ages 8 to 13 will learn singing, dancing and acting in preparation for a public performance on Saturday, where family and friends are invited to watch them perform a mini-musical. No experience or audition required, and everyone gets a part.

Five separate one-week workshops will be offered in 2014, each based on a hit musical. Each workshop is Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm, with a final dress rehearsal on Saturday at 1:00 pm and a public performance at 4:00 pm.

This year's workshops are:

RODGERS AND HAMMERSTEIN'S CINDERELLA (age 8-13)
June 16-21, 2014

OKLAHOMA! (age 8-13)
June 23-28, 2014

JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT (age 8-13)
July 7-12, 2014

THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE (age 8-13)
July 14-19, 2014

ONCE UPON A MATTRESS (age 8-13)
July 21-26, 2014

In addition, a youth production of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF will be offered for ages 13 to 18. Auditions are required for this program, in which teens prepare a special shortened adaptation of the Broadway classic and present a final performance with costumes, sound and lights on a professional set at Cahn Auditorium (home of the Light Opera Works adult production of FIDDLER in August, 2014).

The workshop manager is Anya Plotkin, a member of the team that created the Summer Workshop in 2001. She works to create an environment where children have the unique opportunity to develop confidence in a nurturing, non-threatening and fun atmosphere. The workshop director/choreographer is Caryn Ott Hillman. Musical director is Christopher Richard.

Workshop classes are held at the Light Opera Works rehearsal center, 516 4th Street in Wilmette. Saturday performances are at Light Opera Works Second Stage at McGaw YMCA Children's Center Auditorium, 1420 Maple Avenue in Evanston. The fee is $350 per student per workshop ($1200 for FIDDLER ON THE ROOF youth production). Register online at www.LightOperaWorks.com/workshop.html or call (847) 920-5360.
