Description

This program has been developed for our younger participants starting at five years and going up to nine years old.

Rehearsals start October 3rd and will take place every Tuesday through most of the school year, culminating with two performances at the San Gabriel High School in Alhambra on Friday March 9th and Saturday March 10th. Rehearsals will be from 4:00pm–6:00pm.

Students will work on the musical Seussical Kids. This is a shorter version of the smash hit Broadway show, which will allow the teachers to work with our young performers on their acting, singing and dance skills throughout the year. There will be a director there all the time as well a dance teacher and singing teacher for about 10 weeks of the 50 hour program (which includes two performances).

The aim is to enthuse and encourage the kids as they experience the joy and excitement of performing musical theatre.

The casting is fair and as much as possible “ensemble”, and the aim is for every child to feel they’re making an important contribution to the success of the show.

The show itself will be fully realized with sets, costumes, lights and the roar of a supportive crowd. This program has been designed to minimize extra rehearsal time during the busy school year with just one Saturday before the show, and the Technical Rehearsal on the final Thursday going no later than 7:00pm. The show length is about 40 minutes.

Price includes: Full attendance to rehearsal and participation in show, with costumes and props included. Students will be working with a Director, Choreographer and Musical Director during rehearsals. There will be a Production Manager present at all times.

An option to pay in 5 monthly payments of $210 is also available.

Working for the non-profit group Children's Theatre Network of California, Patrick worked on dozens of classic musicals (everything from "Music Man" and "My Fair Lady" to "West Side Story" and "Into the Woods") to put himself through college.

Rebekah has been a performer all her life in various productions--musicals, straight plays, spoken poetry, you name it. She grew up in East Los Angeles in a performing home, with a father as a set designer/actor, mother who is an accompanist, and three sisters, which is drama enough. Along with her love of acting is her love for children. She is so excited to begin this new chapter of theatre production with Upstage! Rebekah holds a B.A. in Theatre Performance from California Baptist University, and lives with her dog Zooey in Los Angeles.

Adrian Cohen : Artistic Director

Adrian Cohen

Artistic Director

Adrian has been a professional actor and drama teacher for 22 years. He was born and educated in England completing a BA (honors) at Leeds University and a Drama Diploma at the Arts Educational Schools, London.

He is currently the drama teacher at Westwood Charter elementary school and has directed 8 shows including “Fiddler On the Roof”, “Alice in Wonderland”, “Annie” and “Guys and Dolls”.

Adrian has worked extensively in film and television with credits including “Ocean’s 13”, “Entourage”, “General Hospital”, “The King of Queens”, “Frasier”, “Bruce Almighty” and recurring roles in “24” and “iCarly” (as Mr Devlin).

Adrian started Upstage in 1999 with a simple principle at its core — to create an environment that would produce fully rounded young performers:

“I wanted the students to take part in all three disciplines i.e. acting, singing and dance so that when they perform on stage, they have what we call 'chops'-that's how actors are taught in England. And the skills learnt in the performing arts are so useful to young people whatever future career they choose.”

You can also choose to pay in 5 monthly payments of $210.

Fees must be paid in full or via payment plan to reserve a place. Cancellations before the start of the program will receive a refund (less $100 handling fee). No refunds after commencement, however, fees can be applied toward another program or camp subject to availability.
