Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Never Land. Their adventure introduces them to the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Indians and even the infamous pirate, Captain Hook!

Based on the Disney film and J.M. Barrie's enchanting play, Disney's Peter Pan JR. is a modern version of the timeless tale about a boy who wouldn't grow up! The score includes new arrangements of classic Disney songs, such as "Following the Leader," "You Can Fly," "The Second Star to the Right" and "Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life for Me."

MTC Offering Summer Acting Program for Teens


Next week starts the beginning of a three week program, Actor Training for Teens at Morgantown Theatre Company, a non-profit children’s theatre. Students in grades 6-12 will participate in an acting intensive class that will focus on different aspects of acting each week. Acting Training for Teens will be taught by guest instructor Sean Marko, a graduate of the Fairmont State Theatre Program. After completing this training, teens will have a deeper understanding of the actor’s craft and how to use the concepts learned to genuinely perform in different roles. “I am excited to be working with this age group,“ says Marko, “They have such natural talent. These acting classes will give the students a process for that natural talent to develop and form unique characters get every time they get onstage.”

Students may sign up for any or all weeks. Actor Training for Teens runs from 2:30-5:30pm, Monday through Thursday in the MTC Studio at 369 High Street.

Tuition is $90 for one week, $160 for two weeks and $210 for three weeks.

To register fill out the Actor Training for Teens Registration Form .

Tuning the Actor's Imagination (June 10-13) 2:30-5:30, Monday-Thursday
Students will focus on how an actor uses his or her imagination to genuinely connect and “stay in the moment” with other actors. Training the mind to mentally focus on the situation or environment is the first step to effective acting.

Character Development (June 17-20) 2:30-5:30, Monday- Thursday
Students will explore the process of creating characters using script analysis, research and exercises to boost imagination. By “fleshing out” a character’s backstory, the actor begins to build the life of another person, and by learning to empathize with their stories they can then genuinely live in the character’s given circumstance.

Character Fine Tuning (June 24-27) 2:30-5:30, Monday- Thursday
Students will spend time fine tuning their movement abilities, focusing on revealing character through gesture, posture, and body language. By discovering a broader range of movement choices, the actors will have the ability to create more detailed, unique characters.

MTC Presents Bye Bye Birdie


***FRIDAY'S PERFORMANCE OF BYE, BYE BIRDIE HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO ROAD CONDITIONS. PLEASE COME SEE THE SATURDAY NIGHT OR SUNDAY MATINEE SHOW!***

Performed at the Historic Metropolitan Theatre

Showtimes:
Friday, January 25th at 7pm
Saturday, January 26th at 7pm
Sunday, January 27th at 2:30pm

Tickets:
$10 for adults, $8 for children 12 and under
Available for purchase at Pinocchio's Books and Toys on High St., Fawley Music in Sabraton, or our Online Box Office.

Bye Bye Birdie is a satire done with the fondest affection, and tells the story of a rock and roll singer who is about to be inducted into the army. An English Teacher, What Did I Ever See in Him?, Put on a Happy Face, One Boy, and A Lot of Livin' to Do are musical theatre classics. It gives an insight into the everyday life that is very much part of us all. It is the tops in imagination and frivolity; a show that will be enjoyed by the cast as much as the audience.
