BWW Interview: Broadway Academy of Performing Open Registration for DISNEY'S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

Broadway Academy of Performing, a kid's theatre camp hosted by Newman University Theatre Department, is now accepting registrations. The camp dates will be June 10th through 17th at Newman University in Wichita, KS. Kids ages 11-20 are eligible, and campers under 11 years can be day campers. The campers will arrive the afternoon of the 10th, audition and rehearse all week for this year's production of Disney's Beauty and the Beast. The musical, based on the animated feature of 1991, has music by Menken, Ashman and Rice, and features such delightful songs as "Be Our Guest" and "Something There." Broadway Academy of Performing is celebrating its 20th year, and this is the third at Newman University.

The campers of Broadway Academy of Performing consist of residents from the five state area. While in rehearsal, they are directed by professionals in the music, dance and theatre industries. Campers will live on campus while preparing for the performance. Last summer, campers performed Disney's The Little Mermaid and Into the Woods. Previous productions include The Sound of Music, Godspell, Annie, Wizard of Oz and Cinderella.

The production will be in the De Mattias Performance Hall on the Newman campus on June 17th at 2:00pm and 6:00pm. Reservations not required. Tickets are $5 for students and seniors, $10 for adults.
