Our Theatre Production Class will teach novice and experienced actors and dancers all aspects of performing in a play production as we produce MS. MERT'S HOLLY JOLLY MERRY CHRISTMAS MOVIE NIGHT! 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. The cast will also learn a full musical theatre prop and dance number for the play.
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. Voice coaching by Lizzy Griffin is available to selected students for an additional fee.
THEATRE PLAY DESCRIPTION:
"MS. MERT'S HOLLY JOLLY MERRY CHRISTMAS MOVIE NIGHT"
Join the Watters family for their annual Christmas movie night. Ms. Mert, the special lady for whom this night was named, is absent from the celebration this year...or is she? Zane, Isabelle, and their three children prepare to carry on with the holiday tradition they established with their elderly neighbor, Mert, some five or so years ago: Ms. Mert's Holly Jolly Merry Christmas Movie Night!
Only Ms. Mert recently passed away. Mert left each member of the Watters family with warm memories to cherish for a lifetime. But it would seem that she left them with even more when the doorbell announces a mysterious messenger sent, it appears, by Mert herself. This would-be herald--dressed as a fruitcake--announces that Mert has prepared one final gift for her surrogate family...a treasure hunt to end all treasure hunts! And what better place to hide her clues than within the treasured films they have enjoyed throughout the years and in gifts she selected for the entire family season after season.
The play incorporates some of your favorite scenes from classic Christmas movies, come to life on stage--"Hot Chocolate" from POLAR EXPRESS, "Mandy" from WHITE CHRISTMAS, "Scrooge" from A MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL and many more.
Help Zoe, Katie Liz, Rudy and their parents uncover Mert's cleverly laid plan and discover treasure that speaks of a heavenly design to touch every member of your family this season. Ms. Mert's Holly Jolly Merry Christmas Movie Night is heaven sent!
