Bakersfield Music Theatre Summer Workshops 2017

One Summer of Broadway-style musicals. One summer of pure FUN.

For performers ages 6-18


Rehearsals to be held at the Stars School of Performing Arts located at 2756 Mosasco Street, Bakersfield, CA 93312. Performances will be held at the historic Masonic Temple Auditorium located at 1912 18th Street, Bakersfield, CA 93301.

- Singing, dancing, and acting training — for beginners to pros! Every student will be challenged and take away valuable performing, public speaking, and social skills.
- Every role is a starring role! We focus on ensemble building and making sure every student has a chance to shine.
- Our staff is made up of professionals in performing arts and education.
- With Stars Theatre Restaurant as a resource for sets, costumes, lights, and props, and the Masonic Auditorium as our grand stage, our summer musicals are the highest quality you’ll find in Bakersfield.
- Students are given the opportunity to reprise their roles in October for “Kids Go to Theatre” field-trip performances at the BCSD Education Center. Please email Sheryl at sheryl@bmtstars.com for more information.


Madagascar Jr.

Directed by Ken Burdick (AM) and Sheryl Cleveland (PM)

ENROLL (AM Workshop) | ENROLL (PM Workshop)

Alex the lion is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York's Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends – Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the “hip hop” hippo – have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity. Not content, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape – with the help of some prodigious penguins – to explore the world.

Filled with fun costumes, adventure galore, and an upbeat score, Madagascar JR. will leave audiences and students with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!”

Singin' in the Rain Jr.

Directed by Sheryl Cleveland and Cody Garcia

ENROLL

Singin' in the Rain Jr. has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline – the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers! In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item, but behind the scenes, things aren't always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina's squeaky voice might be the end of her career in "talking pictures" without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her.

Extraordinary roles for young dancers (no experience needed, we’ll teach you!) and a tour de force comedic turn make Singin' in the Rain Jr. a perfect choice for any group with an abundance of talent ready to shine.
