Light Opera Works is currently taking enrollments for the Musical Theater Winter Workshop, to be held December 30, 2013 through January 4, 2014.
Young people ages 8 to 13 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 version of DISNEY'S THE JUNGLE BOOK KIDS. Every child is guaranteed a part in the show.
Workshop classes are Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm (January 1, noon to 4:00 pm), with a final dress rehearsal on Saturday at 1:00 pm and the public performance at 4:00 pm.
Workshop manager is Anya Plotkin, a member of the team who created the company's popular 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. 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 Avenue in Wilmette.
