StagePlay: Musical Theater for Kids! All-Star Production
Oak Lawn area residents Morgan Johnson, Matt Judd, Michael Lynch, Molly Murphy, and Cylia Srmek are featured in the all-star production of “No Strings Attached” by StagePlay: Musical Theater for Kids! on Saturday, August 25.
These students were in StagePlay’s spring production of “No Strings Attached” at the Oak Lawn Park District, but not necessarily in the same roles they will play in the all-star show.
Thanks to their familiarity with the script, only eight rehearsals were needed to mount the production. Unlike the Disney version of “Pinocchio,” this musical is more closely based on the original story written by Carlo Collodi, according to the production’s director, Monica Minogue.
The book is by Patrick Rainville Dorn, and music and lyrics by Bill Francouer. StagePlay’s All-Star performance of “No Strings Attached” will be at 7 pm on Saturday, August 25.
It will be held at Oak View Community Center Theater, 4625 West 110th Street, Oak Lawn. Admission is $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased by contacting Monica Minogue at email@example.com or 815.954.3228.
StagePlay: Musical Theater for Kids! began in 2002 under the direction of Monica Minogue and has expanded to 8 park districts, offering classes for children ages 5-15. The StagePlay program incorporates valuable life lessons in teamwork, commitment, conquering fear, being prepared, confidence, and theater etiquette.
