“Each year we have three age groups which have
daily classes in vocal music, dance, and acting,” explained Artistic Director
Jesse Cline. “During the latter part of the day camp, all three age groups work
together in putting a show together which is seen by family and friends the
final evening of the camp’s two-week session.”
“Our youth project,
which includes rehearsing and performing in an entire two-act musical, is a
unique theatrical experience as well,” Cline said. “This year, the full-length
musical with a youth cast is “Fiddler On The Roof”, which is one of the most
beloved shows of all-time.”
The camps begin June 16,
continuing for ten weeks. Cline continued, “The campers create their own small
scenes in the acting classes. Broadway music and choreography is added to the
scene work and a world premiere show is created every two weeks. It’s a fun way
for young actors to learn.”
The hit show "A Christmas Story: The Musical" is at The Media Theatre November 9 to January 8. It's suitable for all ages and makes a great outing for families during the holiday season.
Based on the classic film which has gained popularity with each showing on television each holiday season, the musical has a book by Joseph Robinette with music and lyrics written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Songs include "Ralphie To The Rescue", "Sticky Situation", "It All Comes Down To Christmas", and "You'll Shoot Your Eye Out, Kid!"
The story takes place in Indiana in the 1940's focusing on Ralphie, the boy who wants a Red Ryder BB Gun. He eventually learns that the holidays are not about what you have but who you have around you to share them with. There is a humorous sub-plot featuring Ralphie's father, referred to as The Old Man, who wins a leg lamp.

The Media Theatre has the legendary musical
“West Side Story” April 19 through June 11. With a book by Arthur Laurents and
a sweeping score from Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim, the musical is
often referred to as one of the all-time greats in the Broadway canon.
“West Side Story” transports Shakespeare’s
Romeo and Juliet to New York City in the 1950’s. The story takes place on the west side of Manhattan at a time when many Puerto Ricans moved to
NYC. Two young lovers, Tony and Maria, find themselves in the middle of street
gangs at war—the Jets and the Sharks. The musical captures the essence of
struggling to survive amidst violence and prejudice which is one the main
reasons it has remained relevant to this day after premiering on Broadway in
1957. “West Side Story” highlights youthful
performers with energetic choreography and songs such as “Tonight”, “Maria”, “Somewhere”,
and “America”. At The Media Theatre, “West Side Story” is
directed and choreographed by Dann Dunn, with …
The Media Theatre has the Philadelphia region's professional premiere of Jason Robert Brown's Tony winning musical "The Bridges of Madison County" this fall. The show, which received Tony Awards in 2014 for Best Score and Best Orchestrations, plays September 14 to October 23.
Millions of film goers have seen the movie starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood, although the writers of the musical state it is based on the best-selling novel. The romance focuses on a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to get out of Italy during the war. When her family attends the 1965 State Fair in Iowa, she meets a handsome National Geographic photographer who alters her life dramatically in four days. It's a musical which captures the yearning of the human heart and the expanse of America's heartland as we travel roads we often dare not go, open doors we often refuse to notice, and cross over bridges which leave us breathless.
