XANADU and GODSPELL Set for ArtsWest Musical Theater Academy
Spots are still available for the Musical Theater Academy. Designed for kids ages 8-12, this year’s performance will be Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. August 1-5. This rock musical revue is based on the Emmy Award winning 1970s TV series Schoolhouse Rock, featuring the songs "Conjunction Junction," "Just a Bill," and "A Noun is a Person, Place or Thing." Directed by Kate Jaeger, Kody Bringman, Becca Orts and Lindsey Larsen. Call 206-938-0963 x102 to apply.
The Apprenticeship Program is just about to start with Xanadu. This award-winning Broadway musical is based on one of the kitschiest cult movies of the 1980s that starred Olivia Newton-John. Our ArtsWest performance will be directed by artistic director Christopher Zinovitch and musical director Kimberly Dare. Performances of Xanadu will be June 27 - July 15.
The Theater Conservatory is an intensive summer program for teens ages 12-16, and this year will present Godspell. One of the biggest Broadway hits of all time from the composer of Wicked, Godspell carries a universal message of kindness, tolerance and love. The cast, along with singing, dancing and acting, will also be playing their own instruments during our new staging of this musical theater classic, directed by Christopher Zinovitch, Becca Orts, Kody Bringman and Ryan Floresca. Performances run August 15-19, 2012.
