Atomic City Children’s Theater (ACCT), Los Alamos Public Schools’ award winning after-school theater program, is excited to announce their events for the upcoming year.
Public performances of Disney Aladdin Jr. by the elementary schools cast are scheduled for Nov. 22-23 at Duane W. Smith Auditorium.
ACCT will again travel to Atlanta for the Junior Theater Festival (JTF) over the Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend in January. Auditions for JTF with ACCT will be from 1-4 p.m. Sept. 7 and are open to all students in the Los Alamos area. Registration begins at noon. Students wishing to participate in the JTF with ACCT field trip should come to the Mountain Elementary School gym.
ACCT II, LAPS’s third and fourth grade children’s theater groups will be performing Disney 101 Dalmatians KIDS. Auditions will be in November, with performances in March.
Auditions for the Middle School production of Aladdin Jr., are planned for noon on Nov. 9 and are open to seventh or eighth grade students in the Los Alamos area. More detailed information about the audition will be posted on Atomic City Children’s Theater website. Public performances for the middle school production of Disney Aladdin Jr. will be Feb. 21-22 at Duane W. Smith Auditorium.
ACCT will resume its very successful ACCT In School Workshops. ACCT In School Workshops are musical theater workshops especially for third and fourth grade students that are at each of the elementary schools. In these workshops, students experience all aspects of what goes into putting a show on stage; stage direction, acting exercises, dance, singing and learning a short musical number that they perform on stage for their fellow students.
ACCT plans to continue its very successful ACCT Summer Workshops in June and July. This will be the third year of the ACCT Summer Workshops that focus on a different musical theater skill each day; dance, singing, acting, stagecraft and makeup.
ACCT also offers students the chance to explore other areas of technical theater, such as working lights and sound, helping with costumes, and working back stage during the shows.
ACCT offers performing opportunities to elementary and middle school age students and is designed to promote academic excellence through participation in the arts. Now in its sixth year, the after-school theater program is led by co-directors, Daren Savage and Kelsey Hesch.
