2017 Fall Musical Theatre Workshop Series

October 7 - November 11 - 3rd grade - 12th grade


This workshop is designed to enhance the student’s knowledge of performing in musical theatre. Students will be taught the basics of all three elements of musical theatre - acting, singing, and dancing - and will culminate with two final performances of Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon!

Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon KIDS is an adaptation of the fourth of Mary Pope Osborne's award-winning fantasy adventure books from the Magic Tree House book series. Two siblings, Jack and Annie, go on an adventure to an exotic island with pirates, where the two discover the power of friendship and the simple pleasures in everyday life.

Jack and Annie visit their magic tree house on a dreary, rainy day. They find a book where the sun is shining and the waves are crashing, so they wish to travel to this tropical place. They realize that they are in the eighteenth-century Caribbean, the time of pirates! The siblings meet Captain Bones, a mean old pirate who captures the two and forces them to help him find buried treasure. It's up to Jack and Annie to find their way back to the tree house and make their way home.
