Right off the heels of Neverland's Production of The Wi
z, we're holding a unique workshop where students can play WITCHEVER PARTS THEY WANT in a fun 30 minute final product of The Wizard of Oz that will be a very shortened version of the classic film. It will be non-musical except for some sing-a-long parts with the audience. At the end of the presentation, the entire cast will sing a medley of songs from the film.
All levels of experience welcome. We are looking for students who read well, for their age, and who have good focus and following direction skills.
We will have some fun set decorations to set the scene as well as simple costume pieces that will help create the look of the characters.
SESSION (For ages 8 - 11)
1: Friday, December,
2. Saturday, December 28
Mariana's Dancing Studio: 7 Market St.,

If you have a good reader/focused child slightly under 8, let us know. Also over 11 year olds are welcome also. If there is a demand for a 12 and older workshop, we can add that also on another day.
Info: We will have lunch break at 12:30pm for an hour as we sort out what costume pieces the students will be wearing. (Bring snacks, bottled water and a lunch).
The presentations will be at 3pm, 4pm, and 5pm with a little break in between and set up time for our next presentation. Family and Friends can come to any of the presentations at no cost. Parents of students are welcome to stay at the workshop. The director will have an assistant with him at all times.
You only need t
available for one day!
Excellent experience for each student to play several roles, using different character voices and learning how to insert aspects of his/her own personality into each character played.
Learn to take direction from our 29 year veteran director, Andy Diskes, as well as practice the art
of following instructions and staying focused.
Brush up on reading skills as the students read aloud off of old-fashioned cue-cards. (No memorization needed but students should be able to read well for their age from about ten feet away.)
Interact with various personalities in the group, learn to work as a team as well as learning when it's OK to be the center of attention and when it's time to step back for others to take center stage.
Gain valuable experience performing and speaking in front of an audience as well as learning to feel comfortable expressing oneself.
All of these skills will be very helpful when it comes to auditioning for roles especially if it is a 'cold reading' (without preparation).
2. Please let us know your child's name and age.
3. Let us know which session you want to sign up for.
3. Email us a little about you child's experience, if any, in performing. And let us know what you think of your child's reading and focusing
/ following direction skills.
4. Let us know which six roles you child would like to portray in order of interest. Each student will most likely play three characters. (We will ask students to read bonus roles also.)
5. We will then get back to you and confirm which spots are still open and then have you fill out a sign-up form.
You will have 24 hours to confirm that you want your child to participate then another 24 hours to sign up / pay for the workshop. (There are no refunds.)
