Summer Children’s Theater Workshop: Beauty and the Beast
July 25-30, 2022
For youths in Grades 1-12 (must have completed Kindergarten)
Compass Creative Theater is back again this year! Join us for a fun-filled week as Beauty and her team of local librarians embark on a quest to rescue the books from the city sewers. There, they find the Beast and his henchmen searching desperately to cure the curse that has transformed them all into animals of the lowest degree. Amidst dancing pigeons, ticklish books, and enchanted blue roses, Beauty and the Beast learn that it’s only by working together that they can save the day!
This five-day theatre program involves daily rehearsals taught by Chicago theatre professionals. By the end of the week, the students will be ready to perform a musical adaptation of a classic children’s story, Beauty and the Beast.
What makes this workshop special?
Not only is the residency taught by professional actors from the Chicago area, but the kids get an opportunity to perform on stage with them as well. Two actors/educators perform right next to the student actors, leading by example, and sharing the experience of live performance. They’re right there on stage offering support and helping your child shine. CCD provides all the elements of the production—professionally designed and produced music, costumes, props, sets, and make-up—all to make this an unforgettable experience for your student!
