Dear Lindero Drama Students and Family,
I hope that this letter finds you all safe and healthy during this very difficult and surreal time in our lives. The world has changed overnight and now, with social distancing, Lindero Drama Program has come up with an exciting and fun way to change with it. We recognize that now, even more than ever before, the interaction with one another and the collective spirit of working together toward a common artistic goal is more important than ever and can be incredibly helpful to our youth during this challenging period of isolation.
Do you miss performing live with your friends? Then this is the program for you!!!
This on-line After School Drama Program, led by Broadway veterans Raymond Saar and Diane Ketchie, will provide opportunities for artistic growth, self-expression, education, and teamwork by exposing participants to all of those essential components of musical theatre. It will also help to educate the students on how to navigate on a Zoom platform and even how to rehearse, audition and perform online.
Join us in a program that will truly change your aspiring young artist’s vision and knowledge of musical theatre. The culmination of this class will be a varied and exhilarating evening of Broadway music and scenes in TWO PERFORMANCE SHOWCASES – to include musical solos, group numbers, choreographed dance numbers, acting scenes as well as 10 minute plays via Zoom so that, in the comfort and safety of your home, your friends and family, anywhere in the world, can enjoy the show and witness the incredible growth and accomplishments of our young artists.
