Children’s Castle Theatre

Spend time with Children’s Castle Theater and Community Education this fall learning to perform an over-the-top melodrama with CCT! Melodrama is a type of comedic theater where each character portrays their emotions with exaggeration. Even the slightest pin-prick could mean the end of all time. The result is an exceptionally fun, overly emotional comedy with a touch of audience participation..
 
All who register will participate in the production pending availability to rehearse. Actors will audition for their role during the first rehearsal and participate in rehearsals during the following weeks, leading up to a final performance. Prior to registering, please read the information regarding Course Dates to ensure your availability meets the needs for the course. All actors will be asked to provide solid black clothing as part of their costume (incl. pants, shirt/or dress, etc.).

ABOUT THE SHOW

Oh, no! The most evil set of VILLAINS have come to collect the rent, but dear LITTLE DAISY and her FATHER are penniless. Who will save them? A set of NEIGHBORS, a wealthy woman named DOLLY, a wandering LOST LADY, perhaps the CHICKEN that somehow found itself in the play. No, no, of course not – it’s up to the HERO to right the wrongs in this over-the-top, comedic production led by an all-knowing NARRATOR.
