This summer, The Crestwood Drama Program is excited to bring the zoo to the stage with DreamWorks, Madagascar, Jr. Get ready to "move it" with Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the Hippo and all of their hilarious friends in this musical adventure based on the animated movie.
Children entering 2nd grade through our Senior Rec Program (Grades 6 & 7) who have an interest in drama are welcome to join in this fantastic production. There is a part for everyone, both onstage and off. Since the show will be presented in the 7th week of camp, all cast members must be enrolled through the 7th week. Auditions for this production will take place during the first week of our summer program. All campers who audition will receive a role.
Also back for a third year, is our Mid-Summer show “Crestwood’s Got Talent.” Any camper interested in another performing opportunity should see the Drama Department during their first elective period to sign-up to participate. The show is presented at the end of our first month session and all campers (grades 2 through Senior Rec) are welcome!
