Red Door Theatre

Summer Camps

***************************************
RED DOOR UPDATE - March 18

The health and safety of our actors, staff, and patrons is of the utmost importance to us, and so the theatre is currently dark. We are working to reschedule the shows we could not hold in March, and we are waiting to see how things pan out for our April Tiny Tales.

As for SUMMER CAMP - We will be going ahead with registration on April 4th, as planned. Our sincere hope is that we will be able to hold summer camp, as usual. However, we are well aware that everyone is feeling uncertain at this time. So, if we are forced to cancel any summer programs, all registrations for the affected camps will refunded.
Please note that some changes have been made to the Summer Camp schedule. Camp will start a week later than planned, and the Junior Camp that was scheduled for the last full week of June will now be held in August. Be sure to review dates carefully before you register.

Stay safe, wash your hands, and know that we love you!
**********************************************


We offer seven or eight one week camps in the summer. Three of these camps are for children between 8 and 15, one is for children 10-15, and three of summer camps are dedicated to those between 5 and 9. Each camp with the older children ends in the public performance of four shows complete with costumes, make-up, sets and theatrical lighting and sound that add a professional and polished look to each production.

The shows range from adaptations of classics such as The Hobbit and The Wizard of Oz to original plays such as Westward Bound and The Sword and the Crystal. Shakespeare, musicals, stories from popular books or movies as well as those based on other cultures are also common themes for the shows produced at theatre camp.

K&K (Kit & Kaboodle) STaGE Theatre camps are one of a kind run by professional directors. It is not unusual for children participate in 15 to 30 of these remarkably affordable camps

Book, music, lyrics and direction by Lyle Pearsons. Arrangement by Dan Kehoe

There's a monster in town and rumor has it that it's not what you think a monster should be! The villagers of Frankfurter are about to learn an important lesson about what it means to be different and accepted. If you like to sing and dance, then this is the camp that will give you that opportunity to do so and keep you in stitches. Join us in the laboratory as we take the classic Frankenstein and turn it upside down and inside out. We will sing wacky songs like "Monster-Maker Shuffle", "Funkystein Slide" and "Monsters Need To Be Loved". You'll also have ghoulish fun ripping up your own costumes and creating your own monster makeup for this monster hit from the mad mind of our own mad doctor.

Alice in Wonderland
Adapted from the novels of Lewis Carroll by Lyle Pearsons
Directed by Megan Banks

K & K has presented "Alice in Wonderland" three times since it was produced as our first summer show in 1989. This new, revised and rejuvenated "Alice" by Lyle combines the
classic story with its sequel "Through the Looking Glass". All the familiar characters are there including the White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat, Caterpillar, Humpty Dumpty, Queen of Hearts, and Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee. Join us as we all fall down the rabbit hole to join Alice on a wild, zany, "musical" ride into the topsy, turvy world of Wonderland.
