THELMA’s arts day camp – On Stage @ THELMA will feature the theatrical adventure The Show Must Go Online which is the first of its kind musical written to be rehearsed remotely, performed virtually, and shared with audiences online. THELMA is offering this musical as a hybrid of small in-person rehearsals and at-home practice. The storyline is linear, made up of monologues and songs intended to be performed as solos. When these scenes are video recorded and played in sequence, it presents a complete musical theater experience available to any audience with an internet connection. This clear format facilitates distance learning for drama students and directors.
Fourth through eighth grade students will learn the lines and the music and will be featured in a video that will be shown online for all to see! David Hein, THELMA’s Artistic Director will coordinate a schedule with each participating student to go over part. Students will meet at THELMA one-on-one or in small groups to social distance to still have interaction that an arts day camp enables. Students will perform their part at THELMA and parts will be put in a sequence video for all to see. Once registered, you will be contacted to set up a schedule for rehearsals.
This show was created during the COVID-19 pandemic when schools and theaters were abruptly forced to cancel their stage productions. “The Show Must Go Online” was made specifically for all the young performers and communities affected by this unprecedented circumstance.
Camp Dates: July 27 – August 7 (schedule will be created with each student)
