Wizard of Oz 2009 014Over the next two weekends, come experience the talented casts of two dymanic shows!  The Children’s Theatre Workshop at the Asheville Arts Center has been working  hard over the last few months to bring quality children’s theatre to the Asheville community.

This Saturday, October 10, the timeless fairy tale meets the magic of Disney in this adaptation of the treasured animated film.

cinderellaPoor Cinderella is endlessly mistreated by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters, and denied a chance to go to the Royal Ball. With a little help from her mice friends, and a lot of help from her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella goes to the ball, meets the Prince, and falls in love! With a beautiful score including “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” and the classic “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo,” this musical will charm its way into your heart, and remind you that dreams really can come true.

The perfomers are all between the ages of 4 & 7 years old.
Performances are October 10, 2009.
11am, 12pm (South cast), 1:30pm, 3pm, 4:15pm (North cast)

The next show for this age group will be Jungle Book, Kids! which starts November 2, performing February 6, 2010!

0910_GreaseLogo_WebNext weekend, Friday through Sunday, October 16-18, 2009, come to Rydell High and hand-jive with the Greasers and the Pink Ladies!

It’s 1959 and Rydell high is filled with rebellious, thrill-loving students. In the midst of this scene, Sandy Dumbrowski enters as the new girl in school. It turns out that she and the leader of the Burger Palace Boys gang, Danny Zuko, have had a brief love affair the summer before. While Sandy stresses to her new classmates the emotional attachment she and Danny had, Danny stresses the different aspects of their relationship. In the end, Sandy and Danny resolve their differences and end up happily together. Dancing in the show involves 1950s jazz styles.
Note: This show is toned down for younger performers. From the Samuel French website: “Groups who perform for young audiences or produce musicals with young actors now have an ideal version of GREASE for their needs. Shorter and more suitable in content for teens and subteens, this abridged version retains the fun-loving spirit and immortal songs that make GREASE a favorite among rock and roll fans of all ages.”

Performers in this show are between the ages of 8 & 18 years old.
Performances are October 16-18, 2009. (2 performances per cast.)

Performing at William W. Estes Elementary at 275 Overlook Rd in South Asheville. Friday, 7pm & Saturday, 3pm (South cast), Saturday, 7pm & Sunday, 3pm (North cast.)

Our next show for this age group is Fiddler on the Roof, Jr. Starting November 2, this show will perform January 29-31, 2010!
