Pakachoag Music School of Greater Worcester is offering a fall theater workshop for students in grades 1 through 5. “North Pole Star” is a musical written by Sally Albrecht and Jay Althouse. The story follows Santa’s eight famous reindeer as they audition for the title of “North Pole Star.” A takeoff on the popular reality television trend, the show features catchy, original tunes and a healthy dose of humor to poke fun at this pop culture phenomenon.
Experienced actor and director Christine Taylor directs the production. Fresh off a busy summer featuring the shows “Alice in Wonderland”, “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” and “Lemonade”, Taylor is busy preparing for another group of young actors.
The program cost is $205 per student, and there is a $25 discount for registrations received by September 12th. Registration is open until September 24th at http://www.pakmusic.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/13_TheaterEnsembles1.pdf or you can call the school at 508-791-8159.
Rehearsals begin September 25th and continue through December 11th. The final performance is scheduled for Friday, December 13th at 6:30pm.
