OUR FIRST PRODUCTION - ALADDIN KIDS
With a cast of 47 students, we performed Disney's Aladdin Kids. It was our first Disney production. This was the start of something very special for our young actors and school community.
OUR SECOND PRODUCTION - LION KING KIDS
Our second year, our cast grew to 55 members. With amazing costumes inspired by the Broadway production, and a cast already experienced with musical performances, Lion King Kids was a wonderful success!
OUR THIRD PRODUCTION - BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, JR.
After the amazing success of our Lion King production, it was certain our cast of young actors were ready to take on a Junior production. We also added a third performance this year. This was a personally special play as this Disney movie remains the director's very favorite movie of all time.
OUR FOURTH PRODUCTION - THE LITTLE MERMAID, JR.
We continued to work on Junior productions, never looking back. The Little Mermaid, Jr. was another amazing success despite a year of weather-related rehearsal cancellations which impacted the extra time needed for full preparations. But the cast never let it affect their morale, and the show went on as planned. This was the year we had amazing lighting effects added to the production thanks to a parent volunteer. It was also our largest cast, 63 members.
OUR FIFTH PRODUCTION - PETER PAN, JR.
This production was truly a result of a committed and fearless cast. We were able to add a pulley system to the ceiling of the stage in order to make Peter Pan airborne. We also had to perform a month earlier than normal because we had to move to a new building while our school was renovated, including the stage. Sadly we lost our pulley system, and other necessary stage hardware during the renovation.
OUR SIXTH PRODUCTION - ALICE IN WONDERLAND, JR.
Premiere Date: August 20, 2021
We were only 2 weeks away from our performance date when COVID canceled everything. To say we were heartbroken is an understatement. We had an amazing set created and painted by the most loyal and talented volunteers, and costumes also handmade by an amazing parent. We were going to perform on a "real" stage at the high school since our school was still under renovations. We resheduled and reschedule and rescheduled with the hope we could eventually get this play on stage, but COVID just would not allow it. Then in the Spring of 2021, and with support of our town Parks and Rec Dept, we were able to start outdoor rehearsals in preparation for a live performance. However, that, too fell through, which then gave us the opportunity to make the decision to film the play as a movie. And that is exactly what we did.
