About the Program
Located in Brewer, ME, A Pre-School Musical began in February 2013 as a pilot program designed to introduce pre-schoolers to the world of musical theatre. After a series of weekly rehearsals, the program hosted its first show, “Welcome Spring!” The participants sang songs, told jokes, recited poetry, and danced in a variety of musical styles, much to the delight of all those in attendance: family, friends, and flock of butterflies created by the pre-schoolers themselves.
Back by popular demand, the program will put on two new shows this June. That’s right… it’s A Pre-School Musical Summer Camp! The camp will be split into the two separate weeks, each with their own fun theme with a performance on the final evening. The first week, June 10-14, we will be strapping on our boots and going “Down on the Farm.” The following week, June 17-21, we will venturing under the sea and “Into the Deep.” During both weeks, students will meet from 9AM-12PM each day. We will act, dance, sing, play games, and work on art projects all week, putting together a variety show to perform on the evening of the last day. Don’t miss your chance to register your child for the fun!
