YSP Pre-Teen (Ages 9-12)

Two Weeks: July 31 – August 12
Monday - Friday, 8:30 AM - 2:30 PM


The pre-teen program introduces students, ages 9-12, to the joy of participating in a show. Students work with a director, choreographer, and music director over the course of two weeks to present a junior production of a Broadway show. Broadway Junior musicals are condensed, author-approved versions of classic musicals, custom-tailored to the needs of young people. The music is written in keys that are appropriate for developing voices. Students will attend daily classes where material from the show will be used to teach them skills in areas of music, drama and dance. All classes are taught by master teaching artists. Two performances of a 60-minute Broadway Junior performance on The Hanover Theatre’s mainstage will be presented on Saturday, August 12. The 2017 production will be Guys & Dolls JR.

About the Show: Guys and Dolls
Set in Damon Runyon's New York City, Guys and Dolls JR. follows gambler, Nathan Detroit, as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls JR. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.
