Are you tired of on-line activities? Do you suffer from ‘Zoom Fatigue’? The award-winning, non-profit Moorestown Theater Company (MTC) can help. We are offering a 10-week Winter Session of live, in-person musical theater classes in our Performing Arts Studio at 5 West Main Street! Students must wear a mask and have their temperature taken before entering the studio for our socially-distant Classes in acting, dance, fitness and / or music.
MTC is holding 25 different classes in acting, dance, fitness and music for pre-teens and teens, as well as a dance, fitness and improv classes for adults. We are in week three, with all class registration fees being pro-rated. Also, if you bring two new students with you to a class, we’ll charge you half-price for your registration. And finally, anyone can try a class. If you don’t want to continue with the class, we won’t charge you. If you do want to continue with the class, we ask you to register and pay for that class and remaining classes. You can see all of our classes on MTC’s Website at www.MoorestownTheaterCompany.org
Winter Stage ’21 will feature “Matilda, Jr.” MTC is still rehearsing for this production that we started in the fall of 2020 but were not able to perform before the year ended. We hope to find an indoor space that we can perform this really fun musical this month or next. (If you control an indoor space that could have 100 to 150 seats plus a stage area and dressing rooms, please call MTC at (856)778–8357.) Once we find an indoor performing location, and the Governor allows indoor gathering, we’ll announce show dates and put tickets on sale on our website.
Spring Stage ’21 will feature “Moana, Jr.” This musical was about a month away from performances in March 2020 when the pandemic hit. We hope to get this musical out of hibernation so that we can have performances in March or April 2021.
Jr. Theater Festival ’21 will feature “Thoroughly Modern Millie, Jr.” We normally would have just finished performing at the national Jr. Theater Festival (JTF) in Atlanta. MTC attended JTF from 2013 to 2020 and has won 12 awards at these eight festivals. This year is virtual, and we’re not attending).
Summer Stage ’21 will feature “Legally Blonde, Jr.” and “Oliver, Jr.” MTC will hold its in-person musical theater camp (for the 16th straight summer) at our Main Street Performing Arts Studio. We’ll rehearse and perform these two musicals during three-week sessions in July and August. Performances will be held in the next-door parking lot behind Bayada Home Health Care. If you register for Summer Stage ’21 by Jan. 31, you’ll receive a $50-per-week discount.
