Summer Stock JR performs


JULY 1 @ 1pm and 6pm

A 30 - 35 minute, musical version of Cinderella (not Rodgers & Hammerstein) from a very well known source.  Participants will spend the majority of their time rehearsing for three performances of this timeless and magical story. Auditions are not required to participate. Just register for the program. "Auditions" will take place in the first one or two days of the program.  Summer Stock Jr. is a GREAT way for youngsters in this age group to learn theater the 'right way' while have a LOT of fun doing it.

DEB WHITE spent close to 30 years teaching theatre on the middle and high-school levels, has annually directed one of our Family Theatre productions over the past three - four years.  Deb is a master at handling those youngsters with a lot of stage experience, as well as those new to the stage.

Early drop off (startting at 9am) will be available at an affordable extra cost, at Stage Too.  Contact Jon for information and to register.

Same great program, new name!

June 15 - 26      10am - noon   M-F   Stage Too

Two-week program for ages 6 - 10

Instructor: Sandy Vernon

Theatre Adventurers is a great theatrical program for youngsters 6 - 10 and is especially beneficial for those with little or no theatre experience. Youngsters will rehearse and perform a short (about 15 minutes) play while learning theatre basics and having a LOT of fun doing it!  One peformance will commence at noon on the last day of the session, followed by a pot luck lunch for familes and friends attending the peformance.

Early drop off (startting at 9am) will be available at an affordable extra cost, at Stage Too.  Contact Jon for information and to register.

Elves, witches, dwarves, and magical beasts appear on “Happily Ever After’s TOP CHEF,” where fairytale guests prepare an array of mouthwateringly marvelous morsels. This week’s gastronomic “geniuses” include Rumpelstiltskin, who tries to spin straw into pie; a big bad wolf, who wants to share his recipe for “grandma in a blanket”; and the Three Bears, who attempt to get the temperature of their porridge just right. There are even guest appearances by Prince Charming, Puss in Boots, the Pied Piper, a princess who is allergic to everything, a hyperactive gingerbread boy, a witch, and even an evil stepmother! Audiences of all ages will enjoy this fun show.

Sandy Vernon moved to Prescott after 30+ years in the Valley. Her background includes 21 years as a high-school choir director and counselor, and 35 years' experience as a performer and music director/conductor. She has sung with the Phoenix Opera and the Phoenix Symphony Chorus, among other groups, and holds music degrees from ASU and the University of Kansas. Having also worked on "Flat Stanley" and "Spam-alot," Sandy is excited to be part of the Prescott arts community.
