If you have a child who’s interested in musical theater, consider sending them to this year’s Musical Theatre Workshop run by Edgar Acevedo under the auspices of the Mac-Haydn, Chatham’s famous theater in the round. For 24 years, local elementary school teacher and theater buff Acevedo and his staff of professional directors, choreographers, and vocal instructors have been welcoming kids from ages 6 to 16 to the Chatham Fairgrounds for an energetic summer camp experience.
Kids explore all aspects of musical theater in age-appropriate groups: acting, singing, dance, theater games and improvisation are all on the menu. The youngest actors perform in musicals adapted for their age based on familiar children’s stories such as Stone Soup and The Three Little Pigs. Students ages 9 to 16 are cast in two musicals and receive training in singing, dancing, and acting. Previous musical productions include: Seussical Jr. and The Pirates of Penzance.
