Synopsis of Dear Edwina JR: Dear Edwina JR follows the adventures of plucky advice-giver-extraordinaire, Edwina Spoonapple, as she directs the neighborhood kids in a series of buoyant production numbers for the latest edition of her weekly "Advice-a-Palooza.” Edwina and her friends share wisdom on everything from trying new foods to making new friends, through clever, catchy and poignant songs.

We are limiting this program to 20 participants so that we can safely rehearse and perform using social distancing methods. Please read Q&A HERE for more details. 

Performances*: Saturday, December 12, 1:00pm and 4:00pm at the Williamson County Performing Arts Center. (Information regarding ticket sales and performance details will be sent out later.) 
*We plan for the final performances to be live with socially-distanced small audiences, but if current CDC/State/County recommendations regarding the Covid spread recommend against it, we will video a performance without an audience and provide a link to participants. 

Dear Edwina JR is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com

Theatre 101 is patterned after this past summer’s popular Acting, Choreography, Improv Camp. Participants will:
• Develop and hone their acting skills and confidence as they perform scenes and monologues. 
• Learn and increase their dance skills with the choreography styles of today’s musicals as well as the old standards often used in musical theatre productions.
• Explore the fundamentals of improvisation and performance games while developing skills like creative thinking, self-confidence, listening, support, brainstorming, team building and communication, while having loads of fun and laughs.
• Create theatre-related crafts, characters, and skits. 

We are limiting each class to only 16 participants so that we can safely act, move, dance, and create using social distancing methods. Please read Q&A HERE for more details. 

Note: There is not a live performance with audience for the Theatre 101 classes. A video compilation of class activities/performances will be emailed to all participants after class completion.
