Students in this class will rehearse & perform a show! We’ve all seen fractured fairy tales before, but never quite like this one, which takes a hilarious detour through Robin Hood’s Nottingham and Sherwood Forest! Smart, pretty, and kind, Little Red Robin Hood must deal with the Big Bad Sheriff of the Naughty Hams (the Three Little Pigs, that is!), who do the bidding of Prince John, the vain Emperor who is eager to try on his magic new suit being woven by Cinderella’s deceitful stepsisters. With Humpty Dumpty, Black Sheep, Rose Red, and Simple Simon acting as her Merry Men, Little Red Robin Hood must save all the village grannies of Sherwood Forest, including her own, an old woman who lives in a shoe, Mother Hubbard, and Mother Goose herself. Along the way, she also wins the heart of the Pied Piper — aka Marion — who’s a touring celebrity musician with an armload of different Mary’s as groupies. Along the way, the cast will learn about theatre, ensemble-building, and rehearsal skills. Students must commit to attend class regularly and be available for tech week and performances March 16-18.
Note: This is a REQUIRED year long class. Students must register for both fall & spring semesters and be committed to attendance at rehearsals/classes/shows. Parent volunteers are expected to help support the production. After the performance, class will continue to meet: analyzing the experience, exploring ensemble, theatre games and more. If you have questions about the commitment for this class/show, please call 708-246-4043 prior to registering.
Tuesdays 4:00-6:00pm. Starting Feb. 23, add Saturday mornings from 10am to noon.
