Register NOW for HEART Academy’s

Youth Theater Project Summer Camp

FUN, SAFE and SUPPORTIVE!

For Grades 3-9

Encompassing drama, music and movement, this fun drama camp will focus on developing the ability to communicate through the powerful and multifaceted tool of theater.  We accept beginning, experienced and aspiring actors who desire to be in a musical stage production and seek to focus on developing their acting, dancing, and singing skills.

Students will have the opportunity to participate in every aspect of production; from set design/construction to costumes to makeup and hair to choreography. In this way, we hope to inspire students to become effective communicators using various media, there is MUCH more to shows than who is on stage!

Synopsis of Production

The show starts with the kind and wise Lion King of the Pridelands, Mufasa, and his queen Sarabi introducing their newborn son, Simba to the animals of the savanna. All seems well except Mufasa’s evil brother, Scar, secretly desires to be king. Along with his evil henchmen, the hyenas, Scar orchestrates a stampede that kills Mufasa. Simba, believing he caused the death of his father, secretly leaves the Pridelands. With Simba presumed dead, Scar becomes king. Under his rule, the Pridelands become a wasteland. In a stroke of luck, Simba runs into his old friend Pumbaa in the jungle. She tells him of the horrors of Scar’s rule and begs Simba to return to the Pridelands. When Simba returns, he ends up killing Scar and reclaims his thrown to the joy of all the animals.
