Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka Kids and Disney's The Lion King Jr
The Kirby Kidz program is an eight-week long theatrical workshop open to both the experienced and novice actors ages five through eighteen years of age. The program, unique to Northeast Pennsylvania, is designed to offer that “Kirby Experience” to all aspiring school age actors, singers and dancers. Kirby Kidz is a product of the F.M. Kirby Center’s and the Harris Conservatory for the Arts outreach programs respectively.
The two regional arts organizations have developed this actor’s clinic to offer a professional theater experience to children across Northeast Pennsylvania. The program features over 60 hours of instruction in character acting, method acting, auditioning, sight reading, stage direction, voice, theater movement, costuming, make up, dance and the technical aspects of staging a performance. The readers of NEPA Family magazine have voted Kirby Kidz the "Family Favorite" for children's theater programs for two years running.
The 2018 Kirby Kidz program will be producing two musicals, Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka Kids for actors ages five though ten years and Disney's The Lion King Jr for actors ten through fifteen years of age. Each participant in workshop will have their name appear in lights on the Kirby Center’s marquee the night of each performance.
If registered before May 30, the cost for the eight-week seminar is only $350. After May 30, registration costs $375. Classes are held at the Harris Conservatory for the Arts, 545 Charles Street in Luzerne, PA. The week of the show, the cast will rehearse at the F.M. Kirby Center.
