Yoga-not a scary word!

If the idea of yoga makes you nervous, worry not! Marghi Insigneras, our guest instructor, works with all ages, levels, and bodies! She’s been teaching since 2016 and loves helping people discover yoga and how it can strengthen their bodies and minds. I’m super awkward and have terrible balance, but I still love putting in time on the mat because I feel how much it helps me! And the great thing about a Zoom class is that we can turn off our cameras and no one can see if we wobble! Be sure to register NOW!

2020-What a year!

Center Stage Kids was off to a great start with our January and February workshops! Then March and shutdown came-so we needed some time to regroup. We were able to bring some theatre fun in May with an online costuming workshop. And best of all, we were able to hold our summer camp, although in a very different format!

ZOOM-er camp allowed us to meet and create theatre magic with ten kiddos who displayed great talent, responsibility, and creativity as we prepared and presented a show completely online!

We aren’t sure what’s next for CSK-we hope meeting in person will happen soon. But rest assured that we will be finding ways to continue bringing fun and training to all our Center Stage Kids!

I’ve been listening to the music for the last few days and the tunes are so infectious. We are going to have lots of fun with this show! We have room for a few more young performers-register today!

This year’s show is Dear Edwina Jr!

Dear Edwina JR. is a heartwarming musical about the joys of growing up, from the creators of Junie B. Jones, The Musical. Written in a “show-within-a-show” format, Dear Edwina JR. is the perfect “girl power” musical for a new generation.

Dear Edwina JR. follows the adventures of plucky advice-giver-extraordinaire, Edwina Spoonapple, as she directs the neighborhood kids in a series of buoyant production numbers for the latest edition of her weekly “Advice-a-Palooza.” Edwina and her friends share wisdom on everything from trying new foods to making new friends, through clever, catchy and poignant songs.

Featuring a host of supporting roles that can be distributed widely or doubled (or even tripled), depending on your cast size, Dear Edwina JR. provides a perfect opportunity to showcase your young performers.
