This production class will strengthen basic performance skills, and explore intermediate acting skills, including character development, vocal variety, expression, and comedic timing. Students will perform “Marvelous” by Holly Arsenault based on “The Snow Queen” by Hans Christian Andersen in the BPA Theatre School Fall Showcase on November 12 & 14 @ 7:00 p.m.
“Marvelous” follows Gertie, a young girl both loving and heroic, who runs away from a circus in the Deep South to search for her best friend Kai. With her faithful companion Sal the educated pig, and help from Goleta the Snake Charmer and the wild Robber Child, she sets out on a quest to rescue Kai from the clutches of the mysterious Snow Queen. Holly Arsenault, the playwright for “Marvelous,” won the 2013 Gregory Award for Outstanding New Play.
