TAKE 2 Performance Classes are held for 1.5 hours once a week starting in October. They will culminate in a musical performance on stage in February. This is a performance done DRAMA KIDS style. Our students are still our #1 focus. We will continue to work on BUILDING CONFIDENCE while directing them through the skills needed to put on a musical theatre performance! No pressure and no singing or dancing experience required.
Our TAKE 2 classes are designed for students ages 7-12 who desire to gain additional performance experience. In order to participate in our Take 2 classes, students MUST be currently enrolled in a regular Drama Kids skill class. Our skill classes are a CRUCIAL component to the success of this performance (as this is where the foundation is laid). Unfortunately, no exceptions will be made. TAKE 2 allows our enrolled Drama Kids students to expand their acting skills, musical skills and gain additional performance experience.
This year, our “Take 2” will be presenting the original musical production, Press Start. Learn choreography, singing, and hone your drama skills while rehearsing a musical to be presented February 19-20 to our community. Read the description below to learn more about this fabulous new children’s musical from Beat by Beat Press:
PRESS START transports us inside the bright, pixelated world of video games! When the famous characters we know and love run out of lives, they decide to put on a musical fundraiser that will help them raise gold rings and play on. Through hilarious and heartfelt musical numbers we see the heroes, villains and sidekicks like we’ve never seen them before. But when things go terribly awry, it’s the quiet sidekick who must find the hero within to help save the day! This story created by Beat by Beat Press will help our Drama Kids learn and share a message of acceptance, diversity, team work, and overcoming obstacles.
Press Start will be directed by Michelle Leon, with Music Direction by Julie Rohr McHugh. Rehearsals begin October 13th at Colonial Oaks Park from 6pm-7:30pm, and meet every Wednesday, except over the holidays, through February 16.
Take-2 students must attend weekly rehearsals. Limited absences are allowed. There are absolutely no withdrawals. Tuition is $96/month + a one-time $50 production fee, or $400/session. You must email us to let us know if you wish to do the single payment. A production t-shirt and some costuming will be provided.
