Summer Spectacular Camp

Dear Parents,

We are pleased to announce that we will be offering an exciting new workshop this year called Cult Musicals: A History
& Scene Study. This is only for the teen members of camp due to the some of the mature themes expressed in the
material being taught.

These workshops are a scene study of the milestones and an introduction to the history of cult musicals, including the
development of the form and a survey of composers, librettists, directors, choreographers, and producers. Using musical
theatre songs and scenes chosen by the instructor, students will apply acting, singing, and movement techniques to
bring characters to life on stage to explore various cult musicals. Class will culminate in performances of the chosen
scenes for everyone involved, including feedback from their peers and the instructors.

Some parts of these workshops may include sexual content and language based on musicals discussed. Students
should be mature enough to discuss such content.

Musical theater scenes and songs are distributed to each student, including solos, duets, trios, etc. Possible selections
may come from: The Rocky Horror Show, Little Shop of Horrors, Tommy, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Carrie: The
Musical, Evil Dead: The Musical, Cry Baby, Xanadu, Chess, and Bat Boy: The Musical.

If your son or daughter would like to be a part of this, we ask that you please sign the bottom part of this paper and
bring it to camp ASAP. ONLY PEOPLE WITH SIGNED SLIPS WILL BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN THESE WORKSHOPS.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Gabrielle Byam
Hippodrome Theatre Summer Spectacular Director
