      1:00pm – 4:00pm

    Directed by Ciara McCormack

    Don’t have time to do a show but want to build your skills? In this workshop, young actors will become familiar with dance as a way to get comfortable in their bodies, communicate, and create art. The afternoon will start with a dance fusion class that will introduce students to the styles of ballet, modern, and jazz. Once warmed up, they will exercise their creative and analytical brains by learning choreography and playing improvisational games. Finally, students will apply their physical knowledge by studying how movement and dance can bring characters to life on stage.

    To fulfill his dream of becoming a musketeer, young d’Artagnan heads for Paris and into a world of romance, intrigue and action. On the way he meets Milady, the alluring agent of Cardinal Richelieu, and confronts a mysterious swordsman known as the formidable Count de Rochefort. Once in Paris, d’Artagnan unwittingly challenges all three of the Inseparables—Athos, Porthos, Aramis—to a duel, but when the cardinal’s guards arrive, d’Artagnan joins with the musketeers, turning the sword fight into a musketeer victory. Soon he is called to action again to rescue the intriguing Constance Bonacieux, the queen’s seamstress, with whom he falls immediately in love. Through Constance, d’Artagnan learns of the cardinal’s plot to destroy the queen and embraces chance to prove himself worthy of Constance and of the uniform of a musketeer. Athos, Porthos, Aramis and d’Artagnan declare war on the cardinal and stand: “All for one and one for all.”

    *It is highly recommended that performers interested in The Three Musketeers sign up for and pair with the Stage Combat class for the first week since there will be swordplay in this production.

    Atop his kennel, Snoopy surveys the skies, scene of his triumph as a World War I flying ace. Modestly he considers his genius. Stoically he accepts that his brilliance in nearly every field of endeavor will forever go unremarked by humankind. He can but uphold his own high standards. (“I refuse to chase a stick that hasn’t been properly sanded and polished”) and his own immutable philosophy (“In the book of life the answers are not in the back”).
