I Won’t Grow Up- Magic


2nd & 3rd Grade students at Primrose Hill are invited to explore their creativity and engage in the art of theatre, dance and music through an after-school program sponsored by their school’s PTO. Professional artists from Arts Alive!, a Barrington based non-profit organization, will work with students to guide and direct them through the process of learning, rehearsing and performing in an ensemble musical production. In addition, they will be introduced to and review the basic skills of performing for theatre and begin to refine those skills through practice and individual exploration. Fun developmental improv games will keep kids on their toes and smiling! Students will dig deeper into playing characters, interpreting story as a group and refining their stage presence. We will rehearse scenes, songs, and choreography and the program will conclude with Our 2nd & 3rd Grade Celebration of Children in Theatrical Showstoppers Festival-Style weekend featuring I Won’t Grow Up – “Magic” presented by the Primrose Hill School. Young performers will bring plenty of magic to the stage as they explore scenes and songs from Broadway hits “Mary Poppins” and “Tuck Everlasting”. You will be enchanted as they ‘Step In Time’ to some classics – new and old.
