Performance Series: Oakland (Grades 5-8)

Grades 5-8

Our older students will hone their craft by learning more advanced acting, singing, and dancing technique while rehearsing a terrific musical! Ensemble and team work will be the focus as our students learn more complex production numbers. If your student is new to theatre, our skilled Teaching Artists will work to make sure that every child feels welcome and learns the skills to put on a show. Being a part of a production will help children build self-confidence, creativity, and personal responsibility.

Join us on Monday and Wednesdays to tell the story of Aladdin Jr, and you can join us Tuesdays and Thursdays in Once on This Island Jr!

Disney’s Aladdin JR. is based on the 1992 Academy Award®-winning film and the 2014 hit Broadway show about the “diamond in the rough” street rat who learns that his true worth lies deep within.

The story you know and love has been given the royal treatment! Aladdin and his three friends, Babkak, Omar, and Kassim, are down on their luck until Aladdin discovers a magic lamp and the Genie who has the power to grant three wishes. Wanting to earn the respect of the princess, Jasmine, Aladdin embarks on an adventure that will test his will and his moral character.

4:00-6:00pm

With its poignant story and catchy Caribbean-flavored score, Once on This Island JR. is a highly original theatrical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s popular fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, and the Tony-nominated Broadway musical by the legendary writing team, Ahrens and Flaherty.

Through almost non-stop song and dance, this full-hearted musical tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with Daniel, a wealthy boy from the other side of her island. When Daniel is returned to his people, the fantastical gods who rule the island, guide Ti Moune on a quest that will test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred and even death.
