Theatre of Anthem’s 2010-11 Season!
Arizona, March 1st, 2010 –
Musical Theatre of Anthem’s (MTA) 2010 -11 Season is filled with full-scale
musicals with a variety of styles. The
season line-up includes “Jungle Book KIDS” and “Once on this Island Jr.”
rehearsing at the same time (late summer/early fall).
“We hope to make this addition of two shows rehearsing simultaneously a
staple for future seasons to come. I
love that this will give even more featured opportunities to all performers,
part of MTA’s Mission,” says Jackie Hammond, MTA’s Producing Artistic
Director. Also included in
MTA’s Season is the international hit, “Peter Pan” done as a combined age
production for ages 7-adult. Hammond
says that she is thrilled that Anthem will have the excitement of seeing people
“fly.” She is planning on hiring a rig crew (the same crew that flies
performers in Broadway Productions and National Tours), so that Peter Pan can be
as authentic and exciting to watch as possible. After selling out MTA’s run of
The Wizard of Oz, she wanted to bring another huge show for the Anthem Community
to enjoy. Closing out the season
will be, “Honk Jr.,” the story of The Ugly Duckling.
This entertaining show has so much to offer including great musical
numbers, and a terrific plot; not to mention, countless roles for performers of
all ages. MTA will also be
including a show with professional performing adults (ages 15-adult). Hammond states, “I’m looking forward to an even bigger
third year! I have seen the
performers grow tremendously, improving in all aspects of theatrical
performance. I’m excited to work with the very talented returning cast
members, as well as welcoming new performers to the MTA family.”
MTA has two age
ranges for productions: the no-cut Jr. MTA Productions welcome performers ages
7-14, and the MTA Productions are for those ages 15-adult.
“Auditions will be held for each age group though, because this is an
essential skill which takes practice,” said Hammond.
“We want to guide young performers along the audition process and build
their confidence.” For more
