From the 2023 Cast of THIRTEEN!
Bravo to the Cast and Creative Team for an unforgettable SOLD OUT run @Thalian Hall
Once your child is cast, production support fees are collected to cover expenses of the show. Parents can pay on-line in full below or in monthly installments by check payable to Performance Club Kids
Finding Sponsors in addition or in lieu of production support fees is a great way to support our shows! Sponsor's logos are featured on posters/banner/program and all media associated with the show!
Our programs are distributed at every performance reaching an audience of nearly 1000 attendees! We offer a variety of different sized ads! For more info, email Director LJ Woodard for rates!
The creative team would like to workshop this production in order to preview and gauge the casts' capabilities in a low-pressure setting. This is a special show of 13 cast members (plus 7 ensemble members). The music of Jason Robert Brown is amazing but can be difficult - and we would love to teach it to you! Workshops will cover music, choreography and scene work over a series of weeks. Workshops allow us to refine the show while providing a theatrical educational experience to the invited participants.
Under the Direction of LJ Woodard with Tre Ricanek, Choreography by Judy Greenhut and Music Direction by Denice Hopper with Whitley Lennon - this production will surely be fun and memorable.
Imagine no stress to learn the combination in minutes, mixing and matching scene partners, seeing the casting process, understanding chemistry and most of all being part of a show that is 100% teen - even the band!
After the last workshop - we will finalize casting and begin rehearsing based on conflicts with tech week starting July 28th.
BUT FIRST TO BE CONSIDERED - send us a video - DEADLINE APRIL 26th.
Produced by LJ Woodard, Owner and Creative Director of the Performance Club, Summer Stock is by AUDITION ONLY! Auditions take place in the spring and we finalize casting before school gets out.*
Due to the size of the theater space, our cast sizes are limited to 20-25 performers max. Our productions focus on entertaining young audiences and families! We are a for-profit business where our goal is to provide quality children's theater to the community that includes a positive theatrical experience to our entire cast at the historic Thalian Hall in Wilmington.
We prepare for each production with a two week intensive rehearsal process prior to tech week (usually 4-5 hrs/day). We ask parents to provide financial support thru participation fees (that are comparable to camp tuition) to cover the costs of the show.
Parents also have the option of selling ads for the program or better yet - finding sponsors in lieu of a participation fee! Sponsor's logos are featured on posters/banner/program and all media associated with the show! Either way, it's a win-win!
No youth performer will ever be denied a role based on financial participation because of our sponsors! And we are proud to generate a positive return to pay and attract a professional creative team!
