TASM presents “Showdown!” an original musical

Theatre at St. Michael’s is proud to present an original musical entitled “Showdown!“ on Friday, July 28th and Saturday, July 29th at 7:00.  This performance will feature actors ages 9 – 15, who have spent the past three weeks writing and rehearsing a show of their own creation, supported behind the scenes by tech campers who have built the set and will run technical aspects of the show.  The group worked with writing coach Andrew Katzman to conceive a musical about two rival theatre companies who ultimately decide that collaboration is better than competition.  The characters and scenes are filled with whimsical theatre references, making the show-versus-show-within-a-show concept thoroughly entertaining.  Campers are largely responsible for writing the original songs, and also helping to design and build the dual design set.  Chelsea Boergesson is directing the show, Kristine Langello is musical director, choreography is by Nicole Chagnon, and technical direction is by Patrick Grimes.

The performance is in Hill House Arts and Athletic Center at St. Michael’s School, and is free and open to the public, with donations welcome at the door.  For more information, please contact Christina Johnston at (401) 849-5970 x 41 or email at cjohnston@smcds.org.

Additional performances this summer will include Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” on August 11th and 12th.  For more information about Theatre at St. Michael’s camps and shows, please visit our website at http://smcds.org/tasm/
