Seeking Actors Grade 6-8 Jr. Rep Production: BUCCANEERS!

For Junior-High Students: Grades 6-9
By Liz Duffy Adams
Directed by: Lorra Webb
Young Enid Arabella longs for adventure and escape from her family’s poverty. She runs away and is captured by a pirate king and his crew of kidnapped children. She summons her courage and wits to lead a mutiny and over-throw their oppressor – only to find herself in charge of a crew with different ideas about what they should do now that they are free – continue a life on the sea or return home to their families?

This new musical, premiered in 2012, is an exciting performance opportunity for young actors to sing, dance, act and be a part of an ensemble that values their voices and talents at any stage of development. Led by long-time Jr. Rep director Lorra Webb this will be a great musical performance experience in a creative, supportive environment.
Performances: April 4,5,6
Instructor: Lorra Webb
