A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a seriously hilarious

Psedulous, an ambitious slave in ancient Rome, who wants his freedom. By
convincing his master’s son, Hero, to marry the lovely Philia,
Psedulous hopes his master Senex will free him. A good plan, but as the
opening song tells us: “Something familiar, something peculiar,
something for everyone: a comedy tonight!”

SUMMER STAGES 2016

Brundage Park Playhouse proudly announces its 35th season of Summer Stages, a workshop for young performers ages 8–14. All students must have completed 2nd grade or higher during the 2015/2016 school year.  Our qualified staff will instruct students in acting, music, and dance.  Students will also gain performance experience through participation in a different production each session.  We offer three two-week sessions and the last (fourth) session is a one-week cabaret style performance.  Each session can accommodate a maximum of 2 groups, with approximately 20 students in each group.  This camp takes place at Brundage Park on Carrell Road.  Students entering 7th grade or above in the 2016/2017 school year are eligible for our Advanced Performers Workshop as well.  However, students must audition for that camp.  Please call us at

(973) 989-7092 for more information.

 

What to Expect During Sessions at BPP’s Summer Stages
At the beginning of each session, students will be divided into groups where they will learn a song and simple movement, which will then be used to “audition” for the directors.  After auditions, each student will then be assigned a role and placed in a cast.  Students will participate in acting, music, and dance workshops during one part of the day with the other half of the day dedicated to rehearsals for the show.  Friday mornings of performance days, dress rehearsals will take place using costumes and props.  Each group will have the opportunity to rehearse on the BPP stage.

Performances
What theatrical performance experience would be complete without an audience?  At the end of each two-week session we present a production for an audience of parents, relatives and friends.  The one week session will also end with a cabaret style performance.  Performances will be held in the theatre each session’s final Friday afternoon at 1:00* or 2:00*, depending on the particular group’s assigned time.  Admission is free for these performances.
* Times may be adjusted depending on needs.

Our Staff
Our staff is comprised of dedicated and talented individuals who have studied the arts and whose skill sets qualify them to provide our students with a comprehensive learning experience.  Their impressive resumes include all aspects of performance, with particular emphasis on dance, acting and music.  As a result of our staff’s efforts, many of our students have gone on to perform in professional arenas.

Sessions
Sessions will run on the following dates:

Session 1:            June 27– July 8 (no class 7/4)

Session 2:            July 11 – July 22

Session 3:            July 25 –August 5

Session 4:            August 8 – August 12

Students should be dropped off at the theatre at 9:00 am.  The theater is located in BrundagePark, on Carrell Road in Randolph. The program will begin promptly at 9:15 a.m. Students must be picked up promptly at 3:00.  Wait outside of the theater lobby until the theater doors are opened.  Proceed through the theater doors and out through the right hand exit in front of the stage.  For safety reasons, we must insist on this one-way traffic pattern.  On performance date Fridays, students may leave following their performance.  Please park your car in the park parking lot and do not block the entrance into or out of the park.  This is a safety concern.
