Academy Mask Policy – Winter 2022 *updated Jan 5, 2022
Due to the rise in Covid cases in our area, the Academy Center of the Arts requires that all students participating in our classes regardless of vaccination status wear a mask while on our campus. All staff are required to wear masks while on site regardless of vaccination status.
This camp is for theatre lovers! Students ages 8-14 will learn and perform a musical after a week of rehearsals. Everyone who registers will have a role but there will be auditions for specific parts. This camp will be rehearsing and performing in our Historic Theatre.
**PLEASE NOTE: The Academy follows all of the Covid-19 mandates and if masks and social distancing are still required, we will require every participant to wear a mask at all times during rehearsals and performances. Clear masks will be provided for students for performances. Social distancing and all other current mandates will be followed.**
ABOUT THE SHOW: In Disney’s My Son Pinocchio JR., the classic tale of toymaker, Geppetto’s, little wooden puppet is given new life. This new musical, which retells the classic Disney story from Geppetto’s perspective, features the beloved classic songs, “When You Wish upon a Star” and “I’ve Got No Strings,” alongside a host of new songs by Oscar winner and Grammy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz. Join the Blue Fairy, Stromboli and a lively cast of characters as Geppetto journeys beyond the toyshop to discover the meaning of family. When the Blue Fairy grants Geppetto’s wish to bring his beloved puppet to life, the new father quickly learns that being a parent is full of challenges. He struggles to make his son “the perfect boy,” only to lose him to a gang of Roustabouts. It is only when faced with the thought of never seeing Pinocchio again that Geppetto truly learns the joys of being a father and loving his child unconditionally. Disney’s My Son Pinocchio JR. is filled with a magical mix of unique roles for all types of performers — from blue Fairies, to Roustabouts and, of course, Geppetto and Pinnochio.
