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 is a two week theater program for elementary aged students! At the end of 2 weeks, students present performances of a popular family musical. 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 Academy of Music Theatre.
ABOUT THE SHOW: The Emmy Award-winning Saturday morning educational cartoon series and pop culture phenomenon is now the basis for one of the most fun and easily mounted musicals ever to hit the stage, Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR. A loose, revue-like structure allows for a great deal of flexibility in staging and cast size in this energetic musical, which follows Tom, a young schoolteacher, who is nervous about his first day of teaching. He tries to relax by watching TV, when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music. Memorable songs as “Just a Bill,” “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly” and “Conjunction Junction” bring his lesson plans vividly to life. Set and costume design can be as simple or complex as your budget or imagination allow and, because most of the songs are so easy to learn, rehearsals are bound to be a snap. Perfect for young performers of all ages and experience levels, Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR. is a surefire hit amongst actors and audiences alike.
