MTP PRESENTS: ALICE IN WONDERLAND
Grades K-2

$425.00

This performance based class is one of our most popular at MUSIC THEATRE PHILLY! During the course of this session, your performers will work together with our professional Directors, Choreographers, and Music Directors to stage a musical production. Building on their knowledge of stage vocabulary, choreography, and vocal technique, students will rehearse their scripted show in smaller groups, as well as coming all together to work as one cast! This experience will culminate in a performance for family and friends with costumes, props, and sets! In this newly revamped offering, all students will be sure to have equal material in regard to speaking lines, musical solos, and dance features so that everyone gets a chance to shine in this learning environment!
 
As this class works toward a final scripted product and choreographed movement, we strongly encourage each student enrolled in our performance class to enroll in a dance or movement class to hone their movement skills and technique.
 
About ALICE IN WONDERLAND
Lewis Carroll's unflappable young heroine, Alice, takes a tumble down an enchanted rabbit hole to an off-kilter world of mock turtles, dancing flora, punctual rabbits and mad tea parties. Playing cards hold court, and nothing is as it seems in this land where whimsy and wordplay are the order of the day. Will Alice be able to find her footing in this bizarre place? More importantly, will she ever figure out how to get home?
