for Children in Grades 3-8
Imagine the excitement of working together with your peers to put on a big, staged musical and getting to the footlights opening night with an audience filled with family and friends; this is what Theater Camp is all about.
Campers spend four weeks preparing a summer theater production while also enjoying daily swim, outdoor play, and snack time. Lunch and transportation are not included. The program concludes with a full performance in the Mandell JCC’s Herbert Gilman Theater.
This summer, the Mandell JCC Youth Theater Camp presents G2K Cinderella. The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits.
In this specially created G2K version, all the beloved songs and familiar characters are present and accounted for. However, the entire script has been condensed to better suit young attention spans, and the plot has been slightly altered so as to highlight some important lessons that exist in this timeless tale.
