Cut Loose @ Drama Camp 2016! #cspcamp2016
“Now I gotta cut loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Please, Louise, pull me off of my knees
Jack, get back, come on before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose”
Hope you’re getting excited about the senior high camp starting next Tuesday, July 5. Keep checking the Center Stage Facebook page each day this week.
Don’t forget to be working on your audition piece(s) for the “frooglefarting.”
(If you’ve been to camp before, you’ll know what this means. If not, wait till you show up the first day of camp…)
“Everybody cut, everybody cut
Everybody cut, everybody cut
(Everybody) everybody cut footloose!”
Stay tuned to the website blogs for upcoming camp info. Also, make sure you have liked the Facebook page and keep up-to-date there, too!
Auditions will take place the first day of camp. Everyone at camp is in the performance. If you do not sing an audition piece you will be in the ensemble, but will not be considered for any role.
If you want to audition for a role in the show, you’ll need to prepare before camp begins. To audition, be ready to sing, memorized, 16-32 bars (measures) of a song in the same style as the show (Footloose). Songs from the show are acceptable. If you can select a song that has two contrasting styles, that would be great, but it is not required. If you have the sheet music, bring it to the first day of camp.
A monologue is not required for this year’s camp audition.

We would like to announce the start of a Tech Track for those interested in learning the ropes about the behind-the-scenes work that goes into a production. This will be a great opportunity for those who love theatre but may not want to or like to be on stage, or for those who just LOVE the geeky side of things. We are planning on offering several tracks in this area: Set design and building; Costumes & props; Audio & lighting. These will be guided by some of our own very talented and patient staff and senior crew.
Register online on the Drama Camp registration page and select Tech Track for your option and answer the appropriate questions–which show(s) you’re interested in.
We are limiting this to 3 participants per camp so sign up now! (Pricing is the same as camp prices.)

This spring, the students of South Arbor are going to be staging the great Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, Oklahoma! They will be performing the Getting to Know…version.
The Getting To Know Series: Uniquely adapted musicals specifically for youth performers. Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA! In this adaptation for pre-high school students, the content has been edited to better suit younger attention spans, but all the elements that make this show a classic are still in place. You and your students will be enchanted by the timeless story and the dazzling score, while at the same time learning about theater and its production.
