Laurel Little Theatre
5/30-6/8/2014
Our annual Kids' Camp will take us to a kingdom far, far away. A brand new production of Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA is running on Broadway right now, and our local kids will also get the chance to work on this show in a ten day summer workshop. It's the story that's so well known from the TV versions that starred Julie Andrews in the 1950s, Lesley Anne Warren in the 1960's and Mississippi born singer Brandy along with Whoopi Goldberg and Whitney Houston in the 1990's version. Our annual Summer Kids' Camp is an intensive one week workshop where students have a memorable time learning the audition and rehearsal process and then will end the week with performances of CINDERELLA. Pre-registration is required early next spring since our camp sells out in advance and auditions for leads will take place in late April. Make sure you're on our email newsletter list to get early notice when registration opens!

Now Playing Onstage in Jackson, MS - Week of 6/01/2014 G2K CINDERELLA
Laurel Little Theatre
6/6-6/8/2014
The 'G2K' Getting To Know Series: Uniquely adapted musicals specifically for youth performers. The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. In this specially created G2K version, all the beloved songs and familiar characters are present and accounted for. However, the entire script has been condensed to better suit young attention spans, and the plot has been slightly altered so as to highlight some important lessons that exist in this timeless tale. Music by Rodgers, Richard; Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
