Theatreworks Live Fall 2020 Classes

We are thrilled to announce our Fall Classes for 2020!

We’ve got some great shows planned to keep theatre going safely.   We may not be back in the rehearsal room or on the stage quite yet, but we can still rehearse, perform, and celebrate the magic of theatre!  Our three age appropriate productions are specifically designed to be rehearsed, produced, and performed remotely on the internet. Each cast will rehearse over zoom and then record their performance for streaming to friends and family.  While we prefer to be in-person, we’ve learned how to have a lot of fun virtually.  We can’t wait to do it again this fall!

Dates: Saturday Mornings, September 19 – November 21
Performances: Streaming Thanksgiving weekend. Specific details will be announced soon.

ENROLLMENT WILL BE LIMITED AND WE EXPECT TO FILL UP QUICKLY.

Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, Clue is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery. The tale begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by Wadsworth the butler, Miss Scarlet, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. Clue is the comedy whodunit that will leave both cult fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out… WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT!

Theatreworks Live Hybrid Summer Workshop 2020

We are pleased to announce our ENCORE Summer Event!

We had so much fun with our Virtual Summer Camp, we are doing it again, but this time with an in-person twist!  We are so excited to announce: SHREK The Musical, Jr.  Due to the ongoing pandemic and quarantine restrictions, we want all of our students to be as safe as possible.  We are currently permitted to have an outdoor in-person audience free show.  Students will receive virtual instruction in dance, music and acting as they prepare for a LIVE filmed outdoor performance without an audience. The performance will be streamed online for viewing in the comfort and safety of your own home!

Registration is closed.  We will have our fall plans up soon.  Hope to “see” you at the show!

Why would I want to do a Virtual Camp?

  • We can still have fun together even if we can’t be in the same room.  Social interaction is a necessity.
  • We don’t know what the future will be like, but we do know that video conference skills will be necessary.
  • Performing in front of a camera is a skill we don’t usually explore in live theatre.  Time to develop that skill!
  • We stay true to our mission in creating confidence, creativity and character.

Theatreworks Live Virtual Summer Camp 2020

We are pleased to announce our hopefully ONCE IN A LIFETIME, and FIRST EVER Theatreworks Live Virtual Summer Camp!

Due to the ongoing pandemic and quarantine restrictions, we think it is unlikely that any in-person summer camps or theater performances will be permitted this summer.  As such, we’ve placed our normal in person summer workshop on hold. We will be offering High School Musical Jr. and Frog and Toad Kids when we are able to reschedule. We’ve already purchased the license for these shows, so it will eventually happen when we can be together. 

All camps are currently in session and we are unable to add any more to the camp.  If you have interest in either camp, please email me and we will put you on a list should we offer additional camps this summer.  mark@theatreworkslive.org
