Everyone loves a good guy – but in Shakespeare’s plays, it’s the villains that have the appeal! This virtual camp will examine and explore some of Shakespeare’s most famous villains and the plays in which they appear. And to level the playing field, we’ll throw in a few heroes too! Participants can expect to get on their feet as they enjoy scene work, creative improvisations and unique theatre games. Participants will also be encouraged to engage in spirited discussions and participate in off-line daily challenges.

Spend a week exploring and becoming a musical theatre character – and help to create an original musical theatre story! During this week, students will choose a musical theatre character from a Broadway show or Disney film/show. They will explore their character’s personality and story, and work on becoming that character. Students will also learn and rehearse two musical theatre songs that they will sing together. They will each write new lyrics to several lines of the songs. The new lyrics will be about the characters that they have chosen. Students will use their creativity and imagination and work together to design a musical plot/story that involves all of the characters. It can be a comedy, a mystery, a drama – it’s up to the students! Each student’s character will interact with all the other characters, both as an actor and as a singer. Once the story has been created, we will continue to develop and polish it, and to weave the songs into the story. For example, how might Annie interact with Aladdin? Or Oliver with Ariel (The Little Mermaid)? Or Cinderella with The Artful Dodger? These are just a few of the possibilities. Choose a character and help us invent the plot!

In this virtual class students will put on their dancing shoes, turn up their singing voices, and discover how much fun music can be. We will sing, dance, and play music-related games that allow the children to be creative while gaining an appreciation for music. Students will be taught a new storytelling song from a popular fairy-tale or children's book each day. Class games will introduce basic aspects of music and campers may even have an original song to share with you by the end of the session.

Vocal techniques for the actor, dancer, and singer will be taught in master class style sessions. Tips for communicating with your accompanist in 30 seconds or less will be shared as well. After taking this class you will go into your next audition with total confidence and have several different style songs ready for any circumstance.

The acting class best suited for Zoom. And given the current situation, the format you might be doing your next few “real” auditions. Auditioning is, by definition, nerve racking. In addition to remembering to breathe when you offer your prepared piece, you might be asked to read a script cold, improvise a scene or asked to read with a stage manager who gives you nothing back. Actors Equity member Rick Lore will help you navigate the land mines. Along the way, you'll tackle a wide variety of monologues, improve your acting and improvisational skills and explore multiple character scenes. You'll leave the class with a two solid monologues - comic and dramatic - and walk into (or log on to) your next audition prepared to dazzle.

HELP! We are in desperate need of House Managers / Ushers for Moonlight and Magnolias @ LTA - please volunteer today by clicking here: Tinyurl.com/LTA-Moon Please sign up & bring a friend! Thanks! Robert
I love the Little Theatre for it"s selection of shows. My main comment is that as and older person with less than great hearing, I miss some important lines. In the Hill House, Eleanor speaks so softly that she can barely be heard in the back of the house. I wonder why they don't use the wireless mikes more. They are used in the musicals so I know they are available. It's not the theaters problem to correct my hearing, I'm not deaf..just old, but missing lines loses the meaning. Using mikes could make the sound more uniform. Theodora is very loud while Eleanor is too soft. Be aware that unless you are in front, Eleanor will be hard to hear.
Could I get captions for one of your performances?
Extend The Producers! 😀

We saw "The Producers" today at the matinee. It was so funny! The characters were superb. I could not have asked for a better performance. Everyone did a wonderful job. Well worth the time to see. If you have the opportunity, this production is wonderful.
All - we have an URGENT need for ushers & an asst house manager for The Producers on Sun Jul 28th. If you can help please sign up here: https://tinyurl.com/LTAFOH-Prod Thank you in advance! Robert - Gov of FOH PS - If you can not help Sun the 28th please sign up for a different slot.
It's that time of month again! Why bless your little heart if you thought I meant something else - it is time once again to sign up for FOH Ushering. So show some southern manners & please sign up NOW right here y'all:
Just saw this new film "Saint Judy" at the AMC Hoffman Center yesterday, and was shocked by the true story of immigration attorney Judith Woods. She was solely responsible for helping a young woman take back her life and be able to seek asylum here in America. The heartbreaking story of the young woman was fleeing the Taliban and wanted to start a new life. I'm pretty sure that the movie is only showing for a couple more days at the AMC, so hopefully some of y'all can get out to see this one!
