There’s a reason why they call it a “play.” In this introductory two-week camp for our youngest artists taught by award-winning arts educator Patti Strickland, students learn how to have fun while bringing their own unique voice and personality to the process of creating a show. Students work together creatively, respecting everyone’s contribution, no matter how small or large. The camp rehearsals are divided into two age groups which meet Monday through Friday, with Saturdays and Sundays off. The younger group, ages 5 to 7, meet from 10 a.m. until noon. Students ages 8 to 11 meet from noon until 4 p.m. During these hours, each group works on elements of a 40-minute version of this Disney Classic! At the end of two weeks, the two groups come together for two wonderful live performances for family, friends, and the general public.

PERFORMANCES: July 1, 2023 at 2 p.m. & 5 p.m.

NOTE: Young actors need only sign up for this program. No audition is necessary.

Based on the classic animated film, Disney’s 101 Dalmatians KIDS is a fur-raising adventure featuring Cruella De Vil, Disney’s most outrageous villain, and 101 of the most adorable heroes to set their paws onstage. With a high-spirited score and lovable characters, this stage adaptation is certain to charm and delight all audiences. Pet owners Roger and Anita live happily in London with their Dalmatians Pongo and Perdita, stalwart dogs devoted to raising their puppies.
