Summer Stock Musical – High School & College Age (grades 9-college): July 31-August 21
- “Bring It On” this summer as Aspire Music Academy and the Merrill Community Arts Center introduce their first-ever summer musical program for high school and college students. Participants will audition and be cast prior to the camp in a musical production rehearsing over three weeks, culminating in live performances for an audience on a full stage. Students will be involved in both the performing and the technical aspects of the production. The show will be “Bring It On – The Musical”, with music by Tony Award Winner Lin-Manuel Miranda of “Hamilton.” The cutthroat world of competitive cheerleading meets the fierce rivalries of high school politics and romance in this popular musical.
- July 31-August 11, hours will vary between 9am and 9pm M-F pending roles and student schedule needs, and August 14-21 will be mandatory tech and performance week and weekend.
- $449 for three full weeks of instruction and both on-stage and off learning experiences, 4 on-stage, ticketed performances, camp t-shirt and “swag bag.”
- Directed by Lori Sager. Class Max: 40
