Performance Club presented an ON LINE theatrical adaptation of the stage production, MOANA JR due to COVID-19 in 2020.
This ON LINE theatrical production adapted for the screen was filmed entirely on location and in front of green screens! The Performance Club is excited to present an alternative approach in presenting children's theater during the pandemic!
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 by May. Due to the size of the theater space, our cast sizes are limited to 30 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. Parent 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 staff.
