Kent Island High School will be starting a new program this summer called the Kent Island Theatre Summer Camp. KITSC is the idea of theatre teacher and musical director at Kent Island High School, Mr. Kevin Reagan. The mission of this program will serve as an enrichment opportunity for those students who would like to explore the performing arts through their participation in a full-length musical production.
This year, KITSC is pleased to announce that it is starting its program with Disney’s Aladdin Jr.! The program dates will run July 1 through July 31, Monday – Thursday (except for July 4th) with performances in the evening on July 31 and August 1. Camp hours are 9:00AM – 3:00PM. Your child will audition the first day of camp. Throughout the program, your child will work continuously with a vocal director, choreographer, assistant director, and director on a daily basis.
Registration due date for the program is May 31, 2013. Total enrollment fee is $415. KITSC is being offered to rising 7th – 12th grade students. This is a wonderful opportunity for any child expressing interest in the performing arts.
There will be a meeting for all registrants and parents on Monday, June 3rd at 7:00 PM to meet the staff of KITSC and to receive more details on camp rules and operation. If you should have any questions about the program or would like to know more, please contact Kevin.Reagan@qacps.org and he would be happy to assist in any way. Registration forms can be found on Kent Island’s website: KIHigh.org.
Queen Anne’s County High School is proud to present this year’s spring play: “The Pajama Game,” a musical based on the novel, “7 and a half cents” by Richard Bissell. The story is set at the Sleep Tite pajama factory, and focuses on the life and love of Babe Williams and Sid Sorokin. Sid, the cutting room floor man is determined to make his relationship with Babe, the sweetheart of the local union, successful at any cost. Myron Hasler, the President of the company does everything in his power to squelch the “unnecessary” raise request from the factory workers.
Staged and directed by English and Drama teacher Justin Callahan, vocal direction by Robbin Twilley and choreography by Kristen Tyler, the production features two casts (Green and Gold) each performing two shows. The Green cast features James Schreppler as Sid, Jamie Armstrong as Babe, and the Gold cast featuring Zachary Groseclose as Sid and Gabby Caligiuri as Babe. In addition, both casts include dozens of talented students who bring the story to life and are accompanied by Queen Anne’s County High School’s award winning band students in the Pit Orchestra, led by Director Eric Wright.
Along with an entertaining evening of music and dancing, intermission will feature a variety of gifts, baked goods, and snacks, flowers and messages. All proceeds will benefit the Theatre Department and International Thespian Society student activities.
The talented cast and crew invites the community to join them at QAC High School’s John F. Andrews Performing Arts Center with the Green Cast on Friday, March 1st and Saturday, March 9th for the 7:30 shows. The Gold cast plays on Saturday March 2nd at 7:30 pm and Sunday, March 10th for a 3:00 pm matinee. Tickets are $8 for students (show ID), $10 for adults and for fans who don’t want to miss a show, “Frequent Fan” passes will be sold on opening night for $30 and include a ticket for all four shows.
