Fall 2011 – Menomonee Club

The latest addition to our Three Cat Education program is our new partnership with the Menomonee Club in Chicago.   We will be offering a fall production of our original musical “Cinderella” (first presented in Skokie in the spring) for kids in grades SK to 5.  We will also be offering to classes “Broadway Bound” and “Sketch Comedy Improv” both for grades 6 to 8.

Three Cat Productions Presents: Cinderella | Grades: SK-5 –Register Online
Join Cindy and her friends as a sleepover gone wrong results in this original but traditional retelling of the Cinderella story. This production features original songs by composer Ric Brutnall and results in final performances December 16-18 in Menomonee’s Fasseas Whitebox Theatre. Theatre is both fun and educational, and teaches kids to think creatively and intuitively. Auditions are the first day of class, and each child’s individual talents are used to create a production that is uniquely theirs. Children must commit to the full session and limit absences to 2. Participation in tech and dress rehearsals (Fri and Sat casts only) is mandatory. Cinderella is directed by Jacque Lueken.
