The musical production experience with Imagination Stage is not just about putting on a show, but immersing campers in performance technique and theatre appreciation. Half the day is spent in a variety of skill-building classes, from core subjects of acting, singing, and dance to specialty skills such as stage combat and dialects. The second half of the day is spent applying those skills to the rehearsal of a musical. Imagination Stage performances reflect the sophisticated training of our actors. Campers can expect other fun aspects of their camp experience to include daily “Show & Go” performances, “Funtabulous Friday” themed days, and an end-of-session talent show. The final performance is held on either July 10 or 11 at 7:30 p.m.

Disney’s Aladdin JR. is based on the 1992 Academy-Award®-winning film and the 2014 Broadway show about the “diamond in the rough” street rat who learns that his true worth lies deep within. Aladdin and his three friends – Babkak, Omar, and Kassim – are down on their luck until Aladdin discovers a magic lamp and the Genie who has the power to grant three wishes. Wanting to earn the respect of the princess, Jasmine, Aladdin embarks on an adventure that will test his will and moral character. With expanded characters, new songs, and more thrills, this new adaptation of the beloved story will open up “a whole new world!”

*No camp on Thursday, July 4

**Broadway Junior scripts are adapted by Music Theatre International to be best achieved in an educational/camp setting: the script is edited for length and the score is sometimes transposed to keys that sit most comfortably for adolescent voices.
