June 12–29, 2017
Free pubic performance
June 29 • 7:30 pm
An audition-only program in which teens age 13 to 18 rehearse the Broadway classic Candide, and present a final public performance with costumes, sound and lights.
The program runs two and a half weeks and requires an audition, which will be scheduled after you register. Each role is individually cast based on auditions.

Who can attend
Serious teens age 13 to 18, who want to work like the professionals. Students learn with director/choreographer Caryn Ott Hillman, music director Christopher Richard and program manager Anya Plotkin…plus special guest directors, musicians and actors…to gain insight into the theatrical process.
Candide searches for his friends in this “best of all possible worlds” with a soaring score by Leonard Bernstein (West Side Story). Great roles for all vocal types, including fantastic ensemble parts. A show most high schools will not tackle, but our talented teens will be up to the challenge!
