Hello American Girls and Families!
I know that a lot of you are anxious for more information about the Summer 2012 Teen Class - here is the scoop.
AGDT Teen Classes are for girls ages 13 and older. Age 12 is okay if they have previously participated in an AGDT Class.
Thursdays (5:30-7:30 PM) – Inspector Detector and the Precious Treasure. This
is a one-act play with a cast of fun and unique characters. I hope to play up the "intrigue" in this story and turn it into a very dramatic mystery/comedy. There will be some
opportunities for improvisation. All characters will be very energetic and fun! There are 9 spaces available in this class. Here is some info about this play from the drama website:
A parade of fun-filled characters is mixed with hearty action to create a
zesty search for the "precious treasure." When Pauline Precious
inherits her grandfather’s
estate, she tumbles into an evil plot filled with zany excitement! The
yucky Baroness of Braunschweiger also has her eyes set on the treasure.
Along with her bumbling helpers, she tries to snatch the treasure away
from poor Pauline. Enter our hero, Inspector Detector, who is prepared
to solve mystery after mystery (such as the haunting ghost!) and defeat
the Baroness and her unsteady duo. This entertaining family play,
filled with a spirited amount of interaction between actors and audience
(including chase scenes through the audience!), invites everyone to
help locate the hidden treasure. Where is it? And for goodness sake,
what is it?! Audiences and actors will love helping Inspector Detector
put all of the pieces together in this delightful animated puzzle.
The classes will begin on June 7 and run weekly through August 9.
I would prefer for any student to only miss a maximum of 2 practices.
While it’s not a requirement, it would be best for everyone involved if
the full class can attend the first practice on June 7. This will
be the day parts are chosen for the play.
plays will be performed at Faith Baptist Church, and the final
rehearsal (August 9) will be at the church as well. The performance
will be on Friday, August 10, at 7:30pm.
girls will need to arrive at the church at 2:00 pm for a final dress
rehearsal on the day of their play. We will have dinner and have time
to do everyone's hair and makeup before it's showtime!
There will be a Costume Day on Saturday, June 30 from 10:00am-3:00pm.
If at all possible, each student will need to have a quick (15 - 20 minute) costume
appointment during this timeframe. This meeting will be at another
location in Lees Summit (my parent's house), where my costume collection
will be held at my house in Lees Summit. I will send directions to the
enrolled students' families before the classes begin.
is as follows: $95 for one daughter, $90 each for two daughters. The
class cost covers: 26 hours of rehearsal time, one-on-one acting
coaching, script, free admission for family and friends to the
performance, most costume and prop expenses (with the exception of any
personal items such as tights), and performance day dinner/snacks.
