Performance Programs
Spotlight for Young People & Spotlight for Teens

PROGRAM INFO

The Spotlight program is a 13-week musical preparation course where students are emerged into the process of putting on a musical.  From auditions, rehearsals to live-performance all students will experience what it is like to be part of real musical theatre production.

 

Taught by working professional actors, singers and dancers students will learn the ins and outs of the performance industry including acting, singing and dancing.

 

The final two days of. the program culminates in a live performance where parents and friends are invited to share in the work of the students.  As this program is about building on the skillsets of the students, costumes and sets are not a part of the final production.
 

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

Classes will take place in person at the Beddington Theatre Arts Centre.


FINAL PRESENTATION
The final will be sold as theatre tickets for parents to purchase.   There will be one performance for each of our Spotlight programs allowing family and friends to join in the final presentation of work.

Disney’s Finding Nemo KIDS is a 30-minute musical adaptation of the beloved 2003 Pixar movie Finding Nemo, with new music by award-winning songwriting team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Marlin, an anxious and over-protective clownfish, lives in the Great Barrier Reef with his kid Nemo, who longs to explore the world beyond their anemone home. But when Nemo is captured and taken to Sydney, Marlin faces his fears and sets off on an epic adventure across the ocean. With the help of lovable characters such as optimistic Dory, laid-back sea turtle Crush, and the supportive Tank Gang, Marlin and Nemo both overcome challenges on their journey to find each other and themselves.

Featuring memorable songs such as “Just Keep Swimming,” “Fish Are Friends Not Food,” and “Go With the Flow,” Finding Nemo KIDS brings a vibrant underwater world to life on stage in a story full of family, friendship, and adventure.

FOR AGES 9 TO 15, STS Campus: Based on the award-winning Broadway musical and the smash hit motion picture!

 

StoryBook is thrilled to partner with Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School (STS) for camps in July & August, presented on their beautiful campus in Okotoks, just 15 minutes outside Calgary South city limits!

 

Legally BlondeThe Musical JR. is a fabulously fun journey of self-empowerment and expanding horizons. The show's instantly recognizable songs are filled with humor, wit and sass — leaving cast members and audiences alike seeing pink!

Legally Blonde JR. follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. When Elle's boyfriend, Warner, dumps her and heads to Harvard, claiming she's not "serious" enough, Elle takes matters into her own hands, crafting a showy song-and-dance personal essay and charming her way into law school. Befriending classmate, Emmett, and spunky hairdresser, Paulette, along the way, Elle finds that books and looks aren't mutually exclusive.  As Elle begins outsmarting her peers, she realizes that law may be her natural calling after all.

Legally Blonde JR. features large, energetic dance numbers with an expandable cast of sorority sisters, law school students, hairdressers and more.

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

Classes will take place in person at Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School 


FINAL PRESENTATION

Final presentations will take place in the STS theatre on the last day of each camp week. Upon registration, families will receive further details, including date and time.
