Strut your stuff on stage

Kids Summer - - Inside -

Pan­de­mo­nium Pro­duc­tions of­fers year-round pro­grams to teach theater skills to chil­dren and youth. Sum­mer classes and camps for ages 7 to 17 run from June 15 to July, with daily re­hearsals Mon­day through Fri­day at the New Mex­ico School for the Arts.

Ex­pe­ri­enced chore­og­ra­phers, set de­sign­ers, di­rec­tors and mu­si­cal di­rec­tors teach act­ing, singing and danc­ing and guide the stu­dents in mount­ing a Broad­way-style mu­si­cal theater pro­duc­tion at the James A. Lit­tle Theater at the end of the sum­mer.

Pan­de­mo­nium direc­tor Christo­pher Les­lie says many of the kids come to the pro­gram with lit­tle or no ex­pe­ri­ence while oth­ers have been in nu­mer­ous pre­sen­ta­tions. There are usu­ally about 50 chil­dren and teens in each ses­sion. “It’s just fab­u­lous, the way they bloom,” says mu­si­cal direc­tor Cora Harms.
