Production Classes for Grades 1-6

Production Classes (Grades 1-6)

Broadway Beginners, Juniors, and Bridge classes offer students of various ages the chance to explore and sharpen their singing, dancing and acting skills in a positive, nurturing environment. Students will begin learning choreography and music on the first day. They will then audition for the Artistic team and perform the dance and song they learned in class. Once the musical has been cast, a traditional rehearsal process begins and the students work with the director, musical director, and choreographer to build the production. At the end of the class, the students will perform on the HITS stage for their friends and families in two performances.

Summer 2017 - Broadway Beginners and Juniors Classes

 

Peter Pan JR

Based on the Disney film and J.M. Barrie's enchanting play, Disney's Peter Pan JR. is a modern version of the timeless tale about a boy who wouldn't grow up!

Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Neverland. Their journey introduces them to the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Indians and even the infamous pirate, Captain Hook!  It’s Peter to the rescue when Wendy is taken captive by the dreaded captain, who has his own sinister plans in mind for our hero.

This summer, HITS is pleased to offer both two week sessions and one week sessions for our Broadway Beginners and Juniors.

Based on the screenplay by Ted Sears, Erdman Penner, Bill Peet, Winston Hibler, Joe Rinaldi, Milt Banta, Ralph Wright, and William Cottrell. Based on the play by J.M. Barrie. Music and Lyrics by
Sammy Cahn, Sammy Fain, Michael Tumes, Xavier Atencio, George Bruns, Jack Lawrence,
Frank Churchill, Winston Hibler, Ted Sears, Oliver Wallace, and Ray Kelley
