LOCAL YOUTH TAKE TO THE STAGE ALONGSIDE TWO PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS IN THIS FULL-SCALE MUSICAL PRODUCTION.
When she wakes from her tumble down the rabbit hole, Alice can’t believe her eyes: conversations with a caterpillar, races with dodos, and a picnic thrown by a mad court of playing cards all turn Alice’s world on its head. Uncertain of her place in this foreign world of shrinking potions and never-ending tea parties, Alice confides in a wise Cheshire Cat, who helps her discover that it’s not where we go in the world, but the things we do there that define us.
Compass Creative Dramatics (CCD) is a Chicago based touring company that partners with community organizations to offer creative, engaging theater programming designed to provide arts enrichment and cultivate personal growth and character. CLICK HERE to learn more about the Summer Theater Residency.
CCD’s one week residency provides an opportunity for youth to work alongside two professional artists in mounting a full theatrical production on The Paramount’s stage! The residency begins with an audition, followed by a week of rehearsals and theater workshops, and culminates with an original 60-minute musical adaptation of a classic children’s story. CCD provides all the elements of the production – professionally designed and produced music, costumes, props, sets, and make-up – all to make this an unforgettable experience for everyone! The residency is designed to purposefully and intrinsically instill skills of character such as trustworthiness, respect, and responsibility while participants stretch their muscles of creativity and bravery through the art of theater.
CCD encourages students to take creative risks and trust without self-judgment, stretching their creativity and bravery “muscles” as they develop social skills like teamwork, respect, and empathy through their exploration of theatre.
