SUMMER STAGES 2023
Stages is a non-denominational theater company that has cultivated children’s interest in the arts for the past 27 years!
Our Annual Musical Theater Summer Workshop:
Our two-week Musical Theater Summer Workshop welcomes rising 2nd through 12th graders and provides instruction in singing, acting, and dancing. Each session ends with a fully staged performance at the Fair Lawn Community Center.
Director: Christine Knitel (Music teacher, Fair Lawn Public Schools)
Musical Director: Eric Knitel (Music teacher, Lyndhurst Public Schools)
Choreographer: Dawn Greene (Language arts teacher, Academy of Our Lady, Glen Rock)
Auditions for Placement:
Our “Un-Audition” model (CLICK TO LEARN MORE) provides the opportunity for us to hear each child perform so we can best highlight their special qualities in our production. You may also sign up your child without an audition. Everyone who would like to participate will be cast in our show.
*AUDITIONS FOR SUMMER STAGES 2023 HAVE ENDED*
Please have your child memorize 16-32 bars (a verse and refrain) of a song and bring an accompaniment track on a Bluetooth-compatible device or sheet music for your audition.
