See Your Child Light Up the Adventure Theatre Stage in Shrek, Jr.!


Many a child has probably been to one of Adventure Theatre’s wonderful shows and imagined what it was like to be on the stage, in the spotlight, performing in front of an audience. But they don’t just have to imagine it — in ATMTC’s Student Productions, they can actually experience it!

Adventure Theatre offers intensive performance and training opportunities to perform in fully produced student productions, ensemble showcases, and recitals. This winter, kids in grades 4-6 can be part of Shrek, the Musical, Jr.. Rehearsals will take place at their Wintergreen Plaza location in Rockville in the evenings while school in session, and during the days over Winter Break. And the grand finale — the performances — will be held at the theater in Glen Echo Park, on the very stage they have watched some of their favorite productions over the years.

Everyone’s favorite ogre is back in this hilarious stage spectacle, based on the Oscar-winning smash hit film and outrageous Broadway musical. Beauty is in the eye of the ogre. Shrek leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.

With imaginative sets and costumes, and a host of over-the-top roles, there’s a part for everyone in the dazzling adventure story. This magical opportunity begins December 19 and runs through January 15 — see the complete schedule for details. No audition is required. Tuition is $800, and you can register online here.

Adventure Theatre MTC’s offers even more programs for kids of all ages, including Winter Break camps. And I can vouch for them — both of my children have participated in the summer program and loved it!
