Welcome to

THE NEXT BIG THING

The DramaWorks PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP 

It's everything you've come to love from DramaWorks' Camps and Workshops but this time even bigger and better than before. Students will have the opportunity to step up their game and perform in a full musical along side their peers in this 9 week performance intensive. 

 

With 21 featured roles and a solo for each of our 11 ensemble members, every student has the opportunity to find their voice on stage. Building on the skill sets we have learned through our educational workshops, students will put their knowledge, talents and love for the theater to the test as they perform the family favorite, The Music Man Jr., for family and friends. 

As with all of our workshop programs, our aim is to teach your students the important and necessary skills to succeed on stage. This workshop gives them the applicational opportunities to test their knowledge, grow their passion and shine in their favorite sport.   

Who can participate? 

The DramaWorks Performance Workshop is for advanced performance students in 5th -8th grade. Prior participation in one of the many DramaWorks programs is recommended but not required.

Do we have to audition?

All Students are required to audition following registration. Students will be cast based on ability and given a script. They will be expected to attend their first rehearsal fully memorized! 

How long do we Rehearse?

The DramaWorks Performance workshop runs for 9 weeks. Students will rehearse once weekly for 2.5 hours, with one additional rehearsal during performance week. 

Will every student be featured? 

YES! This workshop is still a learning based experience and will give every student the opportunity for featured time on stage. Whether a leading role or a part of our ensemble, every student will have a speaking role or solo during the show. 

Will there be performances?

YES! The students will have the opportunity to perform for an audience two times!. Costumes, set, and props will be minimal, in order to highlight the strengths of each cast member and the educational experience of the workshop.
