The workshop is for children who have completed 1st grade through 6th grade. We meet for 2 weeks during the summer, usually when all children are out of school, from 9 -12. During the 2 weeks, the children learn an entire 20 – 30 minute musical and then we perform the musical as the sermon at two worship services on Sunday. This program is open to members and nonmembers and is for any child interested in music, theater, and dance. This program has been going on since 1989. The cost is $50 for the first child from a family and $40 for each additional child. (Scholarships are available.) Each year a different musical is presented and we alternate between a biblical setting and modern-day setting. It is always amazing to see how fast the children learn the music, the dance steps, and the dialogue. They are truly inspiring.
Some of the musicals we have performed include: Faith Hall of Fame, Don’t Rock the Ark, Holy Moses, Ark-e-ology, Joseph, What a Life, and many more.
The Musical is presented during Sunday Worship. Save the dates for 2017: June 26-30 and July 3-7 with performances on July 9, 2017. Registration form: Musical Theater Workshop 2017
