SA Players Presents: Tale of the Chinese Zodiac

Class # 38   Grades: 4- 5- 6- 7- 8

Class Overview

The stage… the lights… the music… the applause!  Theatre is a magical experience where you can learn, laugh, play, and have a ridiculously good time.  Join us this summer as we use creativity and skill to bring to life a story on the stage to share with others.  This year, we will be exploring the Chinese Zodiac folk tale. We will become not only actors, but set designers, costumers, and prop makers.  All students will be singing and dancing in this production about the twelve animals back in ancient China who competed in the Jade Emperor’s race to become symbols for the passage of time.  All levels of experience are welcome, so don’t be afraid to come and find your place in this magical world of theatre.

Please note: Due to the performance nature of this course, attendance is required for all of the Open House (June 29th, 5:30-8pm) and on the final day of the Academy (June 30th).  We will have a total of four performances between the two days.  It is also highly encouraged that students only miss class in case of an emergency as there is a tremendous amount to accomplish in less than three weeks.  Thank you for your commitment to the success of the cast as a team!
