Summer Youth Theatre is HERE! — This summer VWCT will offer two options for youth to participate in theatre.
Schoolhouse Rock Live Jr
Directed by Amy Boley, Emily Gehle, and Alyssa Taylor
Performances: June 24, 25, 26, 27, 2021
Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR is loosely based on Saturday morning cartoon series and pop culture phenomenon. It is one of the most fun shows to be a part of. The show follows a young teacher, Tom, who is nervous about his first day. He turns on the TV, and those memorable songs such as “Just a Bill” and “Conjunction Junction” spring to life.
Youth ages 5 to 18 may audition for a variety of speaking, singing, and dancing roles. Everyone will get to be involved. Auditions will be held May 26 and 27 at 6:30 p.m. at the theatre. Please wear a face covering to auditions. Those auditioning will be asked to sing a short song (Happy Birthday works very well) and learn a dance. Rehearsals will begin June 1 from 10 a.m. to noon and run Monday – Friday. Face coverings will not be required during rehearsals or performances. The number of youth cast may be limited.
Twelve Angry Pigs
Directed by Monica Campbell
Performances: July 30, 31, and August 1, 2021
In this comedic parody of “Twelve Angry Men,” a certain wolf is on trial for blowing down a pair of houses owned by the Three Little Pigs. A Jury of Swine must now decide if they will convict, or declare the wolf not guilty. Most of the angry pigs believe the wolf is big and bad. However, some storybook characters help the pigs review the facts, and Pig #8 asks some tough questions that will make the rest of the pigs realize that the testimony of Little Boy Blue is nothing but hogwash
Young people in first grade up are invited to audition. There are a variety of roles available. Auditions will be held on June 20 and 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the theatre. Rehearsal will begin on June 24. This show will rehearse in the evenings Sunday – Thursday. Note: the cast will be limited to 25 actors.
