Snap Snap! The Addams Family (Young @ Part).

THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family– a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before– keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

Performance Dates: May 24-26, 2024

Dive into the enchanting world of theater at the drama camp, where participants will embark on a captivating journey bringing Disney's "The Aristocats" to life.

Under the guidance of seasoned drama instructors, participants not only refine their acting skills but also build confidence, teamwork, and a genuine love for the performing arts. 

Campers will go through the steps of putting on a full production in 2 short weeks, while learning the fundamentals of theatre along the way led by Sean Boyd. From auditions to rehearsals to tech, the final day of camp will also be a showcase performance of the young actors’ work.

Effective communication is the cornerstone of any successful theatrical production. At Kroc Junior Theatre, we emphasize the importance of clear and open communication among actors, directors, and the entire production team. We encourage actors to express their ideas, ask questions, and collaborate with their fellow performers. This fosters a supportive atmosphere where everyone's voice is heard, allowing for a richer and more dynamic creative process. 

Theater is a collaborative art form that relies on the commitment and presence of every individual involved. We value the dedication of our actors to attend rehearsals, workshops, and performances punctually. Consistent attendance not only contributes to the smooth progression of the production but also demonstrates respect for the collective effort put forth by the entire team. It is through regular attendance that actors contribute to the cohesiveness and success of the production.

Taking ownership of one's actions is a fundamental aspect of personal and artistic growth. At Kroc Junior Theatre, we instill a sense of accountability in our actors, encouraging them to be responsible for their commitments, both on and off the stage. Being accountable for memorizing lines, attending rehearsals, and fulfilling assigned tasks fosters a culture of reliability, building trust among cast and crew members.

In the world of theater, professionalism and positive behavior are essential. Clean behavior at Kroc Junior Theatre encompasses respect, courtesy, and consideration for others. We expect our actors to create a safe and inclusive space where everyone feels comfortable expressing themselves. Clean behavior extends beyond the stage, reflecting the values of our community in everyday interactions. By upholding a standard of respect and kindness, our actors contribute to a welcoming and supportive theatrical family.

At the heart of our philosophy is the recognition that every member of our theater community has a unique role to play. Actors act and directors direct, each contributing their expertise to the collaborative process. We encourage our actors to fully embrace their roles, trusting the guidance of directors while bringing their creativity and individuality to the characters they portray. This synergy creates a harmonious and dynamic production where everyone's talents shine.
