Cinderella

(a panto)

What is a British Panto?  It’s a unique theater experience, filled with slapstick, audience participation, music, non-traditional casting, and constant laughs.  Treat the family to a hilarious day out, and join us for this unique retelling of the beloved fairy tale, Cinderella

Presented by the Princess Street Players, adult actors playing for young audiences.

This show has been moved to January of 2023.  Tickets will go on sale in 2022.

Come hear the incredible tale of Mowgli, a young boy raised by wolves.  With the help of his friends — the bear Baloo, the panther Bagheera, and the python Kaa — Mowgli learns the ways of the jungle.  However, all is not peaceful for Mowgli, as Shere Khan, the man-eating tiger, is plotting to take control of the jungle.  Mowgli must use all his strength and courage to stop Shere Khan before it is too late. 

This 8-week immersive theater workshop for youth aged 8 through 18 is an exciting way for children and teens to experience all the magic of live theater through rehearsals, classes, and hands-on work with the many elements involved in creating a production for the stage.  It begins Saturday and Sunday, March 25 and 26, 2023, with auditions.  All registered youth are guaranteed a place in the cast or crew.  You will be contacted to schedule an audition time once your registration is confirmed.  If your actor cannot attend on either date, please make arrangements in advance for a private audition.

 

​​All rehearsals and performances will be at 113 S. Princess Street in Shepherdstown.  Rehearsals for production workshops are scheduled with participants' schedules in mind.  You will be asked for a list of date and time conflicts (for weeknights 5:00 to 7:00) after you register, and you can make changes to that list up to March 26, 2023.  We ask that, once the rehearsal schedule is completed, you and your cast/crew member commit to attend.  Unexcused absences may mean the loss of a role. 

Please bear in mind that rehearsals during the week preceding opening night (Tech Week) will run late.  Attendance during

Tech Week, as well as the mid-run rehearsal and all performances, is MANDATORY.   This covers MAY 8 through MAY 21, 2023.

​​

There will be six performances of The Jungle Book over two weekends: May 12 through 21, 2023. (Fridays at 7:00 pm; Saturdays at 2:00 pm; and Sundays at 2:00 pm).  To confirm your place, register online with the link above, and include your child(ren)'s name in the address line.  We will follow up on your registration by email.  Space is limited, so register soon.

JUNIOR THEATER PRODUCTION WORKSHOP

Sometimes the call of the stage is strong, and we just can't wait until we're "a little older."  That's why the Playhouse offers a Junior Theater Production Workshop for those aged 4 to 8, who want to perform for an audience, but aren't ready for the more intense, 10-week workshops.

This six-week program is designed to gently integrate the younger actor into our larger workshop productions.  Each child who registers will receive a part in a short play to be performed with our fall musical, "Rockin' Robin Hood."  Rehearsals will take place Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:00 to 6:30, beginning October 10.  Actors will also rehearse Monday through Thursday, November 7 through 10. Eight performances will take place Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, November 11 through 20, 2022.
