The Donna Reed Foundation for the Performing Arts
Children's Musical Theatre Workshop
12 - 17 June 2017
Allison Rasmussen - Waverly-Shell Rock Schools

Children's Musical Theatre Workshop returns this summer with a production of the popular "Annie KIDS" inspired by the captivating Broadway musical, Annie. With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts, despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Determined to find her parents, Annie escapes her orphanage with the help of other girls into the wondrous and magical world of New York City.

This fun-filled week is designed to teach the basics of musical theatre to kids in grades K-8 who love singing, dancing and challenges. The workshop runs from June 12-16, 2017, and concludes with a performance on Saturday, June 17. All events will take place at the Denison High School, 819 North 16th Street in Denison, Iowa. (Auditions for speaking roles will take place at the first session on Monday, June 12.)

Since its meager beginning in 2004, this popular workshop has blossomed under the direction of Allison Rasmussen, a Manilla native and vocal music instructor at Waverly-Shell Rock Community Schools. This is her eleventh year of volunteering to head this workshop production. She is assisted by a dedicated team which now includes former students. All give a week of their time to help stage the production.

Even local grandparents have discovered a wonderful benefit. They can spend a week of quality time with their grandchildren by inviting them for a visit and enrolling them in the workshop.
