Christmas Parade Extravaganza!
December 23 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Have you ever been inspired by the Macy’s Annual Thanksgiving Day Parade, Disneyland/world parades, or any live, interactive, performances? Want to take your musical theatre skills to the next level?
Here’s your turn to gain some professional training in the live-entertainment world by joining Rachel Carr in “Christmas Parade Extravaganza”!
Rachel will share her experiences of performing in the Disney parades while guiding you to create your own parade with on stage and behind the scenes magic!
Full of Disney inspiration, students will learn the how-tos of performing in multiple shows a day, and the “behind the scenes” elements involved with large-scale parades and outdoor performance events.
Go through the entire park/parade process from audition to performance, learn the technical elements involved in building mechanical floats, design Disney-inspired costumes, and more! Improvisation, Music theory, and acting activities will also be incorporated in this workshop. The skills learned in this workshop will improve “picking up” choreography, public speaking, creative thinking, and technology.
This ONE DAY ONLY event welcomes pre-teens and teens of all theatrical backgrounds to attend. Closed-toe shoes MUST be worn (dance shoes are not required, but encouraged). Students are encouraged to bring lunch and a water bottle.
