Children’s Theatre Club registering members

Children’s Theatre Club is registering members for their 2012 season. The club is a non-profit organization which offers theatre experiences for area youth. The 2012 season will offer four sessions, with each session focusing on the production of a Broadway style musical.

Session one’s production will be Children’s Letter to God and runs February 27th, 2012 thru April 22nd 2012. The musical focuses on the questions young people have about life such as; “why do pets die?” Why do parents get divorced?” “Why doesn’t this boy like me?” When no one can answer their question they turn to the one person who can. Featuring such songs as: “When I am in charge”, “Six hours as a Princess”, and “I know.” This humorous and touching show offers many acting and singing opportunities.

Session two’s production will the 1991 Tony nominated musical Once on this Island. Loosed based on Hans Christen Anderson’s The Little Mermaid and Romeo and Juliet, this musical tells the story of the young girl Ti Moune as she travels around the island trying to find meaning to her life in a world ruled by social inequality and four temperamental Gods. Featuring such beautiful and upbeat songs as: “Mama will provide”, “Why we tell the story”, and the touching “Ti Moune.” This heartfelt and moving production offers over a hundred cast members.

Session three will be the production of High School Musical. This popular Disney movie comes to the stage, in the tale of what happens when students breakaway from the stereotypical high school cliques. Including such well known songs as: “Breaking free,” “Stick to the status quo,” “We’re all in this together”, plus a couple new songs not featured in the movie.

Session four focuses on The musical adventures of Flat Stanley. Based on the beloved children’s book, this musical follows the escapades of Stanley Lambchop. After being smashed flat when his bulletin board falls on him, Stanley travels through the mail, having great adventures around the world. With such great songs as “Meet the Lambchops,” “Silly song,” and “Talent,” Flat Stanley offers great performance opportunities for students of all ages.

It is the policy of Children’s Theatre Club that every student who auditions will be given a part on stage. Experiences are also available for students who are interested in directing, stage management, along with set and costume design, and technical crew.

Members who register by January 9th will receive a discount to their membership dues. A representative of Children’s Theatre Club will be at Countryside Bike Shop, located at 301 S. Broadway in Greenville, on Saturday January 7th from 10 am to 3pm to register students and answer any questions you may have. Payment plans for membership dues are available, along with the opportunity for students and parents to volunteer their time to the organization and receive credit towards their session dues. Dues payments qualify for a 2012 income tax deduction.
