West Side Story

The musical West Side Story is an American musical with a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein, libretto and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and with the concept and choreography by Jerome Robbins.  It was inspired by William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet.

The story is set in the Upper West Side neighborhood of New York City in the mid-1950’s. The musical explores the rivalry between the Jest and the Sharks, two teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds. The members of the Sharks, from Puerto Rico, are taunted by the Jets, a Caucasian gang.  The young protagonist, Tony, a former member of the Jets and best friend of the gang leader, Riff, falls in love with Maria, the sister of Bernardo, the leader of the Sharks. The story is based on two people who meet and fall in love bur are separated because they come from different groups that don’t like each other.  The dark themes, sophisticated music, dance scenes, and focus on social problems marked a turning point in American musical
theater.  West Side Story is considered the greatest musical in the history of American musical theater.

Thoroughly Modern Millie

The middle school / high school crossover camp cast will present the musical Thoroughly Modern Millie, with music by Jeanine Tesori, lyrics by Dick Scanlan, and a book by Robert Morris and Scanlan. It is based on the 1967 film of the same name, which was based on the British musical “Chrysanthemum,” which opened in London in 1958.

Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of a small-town girl, Millie Dillmount, who comes to New York City to marry for money instead of love — a thoroughly modern aim in 1922, when women were just entering the workforce.

Millie begins to take delight in the flapper lifestyle, but problems arise when she checks into a hotel owned by the leader of a white slavery ring in China.  Confusion and chaos ensue, but the curtain comes down with is a happy, romantic ending.  The style of the musical is comic pastiche.

Princess Whatshername

The kids division, for ages 5 to 11, will present the musical Princess Whatshername.  The story begins in the Misty Forest where a girl is sleeping all alone.  When she wakes nothing looks familiar to her. She can’t remember anything — not where she’s from, how she got here or even her own name!

She embarks on a journey to discover her identity and meets several fair-tale character along the way: Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Show White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, and Rapunzel to name a few.  And as with any good fairy tale there’s a prince!

A classic fairy-tale setting, original music and a hilarious story will make Princess Whatshername an educational experience for the summer camp kids.

The Summer Musical TheatreCamp, now in its 21st  season, has excelled in its goal of giving students a taste of musical theater by instructing in all aspects of a musical theater production: Acting, music and dance. The camp culminates in the creation and performance of complete staged musical theater and theatrical productions before a live audience.

The Summer Musical TheaterCamp is widely as the leading training ground for young actors. Since its inception in 1995, with 30 kids ages 5 to 14, the educational program has produced 32 musical theater shows with over 1200 kids and teens in participation. For the past 12 years the SMTC for teens has produced full-scale Broadway musicals on its stage.  =Additionally, for a sixth year, the middle school/high school group will present its own full-scale musical in an effort to give these younger actors the skills and opportunities to be on stage in leading rolls.  

The actors have come not only from St. Augustine and throughout the state, but from across the USA including New Jersey, California, Ohio, Wisconsin; and even England and Malaysia.  Many kids and teens have spent up to thirteen years in the program with several now working as professional actors throughout the county.  This summer over 150 kids ranging from age 5 to 18 will take part in the 2015 summer season.
