About the Program:
Fairfield Summer Stage is a comprehensive immersive theatre experience for young actors, supported by a professional creative staff of directors and designers, held at the Fairfield Museum in downtown Fairfield, CT. With each 3-week summer session, we will mount a full production of a musical, starting with the initial audition and followed by a rehearsal process, culminating in an exciting performance where family and friends can enjoy your hard work from the audience. No previous experience required!
About the Shows:
Frozen Jr (Session 1, grades 1-6): Frozen JR. is based on the 2018 Broadway musical, and brings Elsa, Anna, and the magical land of Arendelle to life, onstage. The show features all of the memorable songs from the animated film, with music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, plus five new songs written for the Broadway production. A story of true love and acceptance between sisters, Frozen JR. expands upon the emotional relationship and journey between Princesses Anna and Elsa. When faced with danger, the two discover their hidden potential and the powerful bond of sisterhood. With a cast of beloved characters and loaded with magic, adventure, and plenty of humor, Frozen JR. is sure to thaw even the coldest heart!
Legally Blonde Jr (Session 1, grades 6-10): Based on the award-winning Broadway musical and the smash hit motion picture, Legally BlondeThe Musical JR. follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. When Elle's boyfriend, Warner, dumps her and heads to Harvard, claiming she's not "serious" enough, Elle takes matters into her own hands, crafting a showy song-and-dance personal essay and charming her way into law school. Befriending classmate, Emmett, and spunky hairdresser, Paulette, along the way, Elle finds that books and looks aren't mutually exclusive. As Elle begins outsmarting her peers, she realizes that law may be her natural calling after all.
Jacklyn & Hydi (Session 2, grades 1-10): After a disastrous Homecoming dance, Science Club President Jacklyn’s mysterious cousin Hydi shows up at Stevenson High to put the school bullies, known as the “Hi Squad”, in their place. With music by Ariana Grande, Imagine Dragons, Ava Max, Maroon 5 and Miley Cyrus, Jekyll and Hyde meets Mean Girls in this teen/gender-switch version of the Robert Louis Stevenson (or “horror”) classic.
