REGISTER INFO BELOW

Lullabelle Harper the Good Witch of the South rules the Land of Grits & Hominy, just over the other side of the rainbow, where the Pageant Queens and Sweet Old Church Ladies live and are just about to register for the 1974 86th annual Ms. Peach Pit Pageant. All is jubilant as the Beulah Belle church ladies serve sweet iced tea for the pageant contestants when an unknown debutant tries to cut in line. It’s Elphabella, the Wicked Witch of the West!

 

Another house has dropped out of the sky onto the Wicked West Territory leaving Elphabella homeless and now she’s sizing up Grits & Hominy for a hostile takeover by winning the magical Miss Peach Pit Crown. She knows that whomever wears the crown is magically transformed forty years younger. She says she may not have been able to get the ruby slippers, but by gawd, she’s gonna git the Crown of Youth!

 

She will have to get in line because the crown has a royal blood line longer than the Mississippi and every past Peach Pit queen is the successor to ruling the land and remaining youthful forever. And Lord knows aint no pageant queen out there who would ever give up her crown without a fight, especially this one.

CLASS DESCRIPTION:

Our Theatre Production Class will teach novice and experienced actors and dancers all aspects of performing in a play production as we produce the Performance Supply Company original play,"THE UNTOLD STORY OF LULLABELLE HARPER, THE GOOD WITCH OF THE SOUTH," written and directed by Jodie Wilk.

During the first few weeks, students will learn the basics of auditioning, acting, characterization and scene blocking, as well as musical theatre dance basics and practice combinations. Through extensive script table reads, acting exercises and creating backstories, students will learn to enhance their characters with proper motivation and intent prior to blocking the show. 

Students who would also like to prepare a song or play an instrument for a Pre-Show prior to the play performances are welcomed to audition. Those auditions will be held during class at a time/date tbd.
