Falls First Act Summer Camp 2024
Disney’s Alice in Wonderland JR.
Direction and Choreography by Ami Majeskie, Music Direction by Cassie Wilson
Weekdays 9:00 am to 4:00 pm June 17 – 27th
Two performances: 10:00 am and 7:00 pm on June 28th
Fall down the rabbit hole with Alice as she navigates the curious world of Wonderland on her journey of self-discovery. Along the way, Alice encounters the ever-tardy White Rabbit, the grinning Cheshire Cat, a cool Caterpillar, the wacky Mad Hatter, a temperamental Queen, and many more beloved Wonderland characters in this charming, updated retelling of the classic Lewis Carroll stories. Adapted especially for young performers, the musical includes favorite songs from the Disney canon such as “I’m Late,” “The Unbirthday Song,” and “Painting the Roses Red,” in addition to music from the 2010 Tim Burton live-action film.
Young performers will go through the entire show building process, from auditioning to rehearsals to learning harmonies and choreography. We will add lights, costumes, and props, and perform for the community at the end of an action packed two weeks.
Director/Choreographer Ami Majeskie and Music Director Cassie Wilson will be joined by other knowledgeable and seasoned staff to provide an educational and exciting performance experience.
Registration is open to students ages 8 through 15. Registration begins on February 11 at 5:00 PM.
We are excited to see familiar faces and welcome new ones. Registration should be completed and purchased by a direct family member. Anyone in violation will risk having their registrations voided.
Camp runs for two weeks, Monday through Friday, beginning June 17, 2024, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm (9 am to 11:30 pm on June 28th), culminating in two performances on Friday, June 28th at 10 am and 7 pm. All camp activities will take place in the North Middle School Auditorium and immediate area at N88 W16750 Garfield Drive in Menomonee Falls.
This camp is a performance experience designed to ready young performers for fully realized productions. Because there is a large amount of material to learn, and out of courtesy to the leaders and fellow members of the camp, we expect full participation and request that absence due to conflicts be reserved for illness or emergencies only.
Cost of the 2-week camp is $375.00. Refunds (minus a $35 cancellation fee) will be available for registrants who cancel up to two weeks before camp begins only if we are able to fill the spot from our waiting list. No refunds will be issued for cancellations within two weeks of the beginning of camp.
Registration details are available at this link.
