BROADWAY BOUND YOUTH THEATRE TROUPE TO HOLD OPEN HOUSE FOR NEW MEMBERS
September 4, 2014 (TAMPA) – The Carrollwood Cultural Center, located at 4537 Lowell Road, will host an open house for parents of children interested in participating in Broadway Bound, the Center’s youth theatre troupe for ages 6 to 17, on Saturday, September 13 from 10 a.m. until noon.
The goal of Broadway Bound is to introduce and perfect skills required for theatre production, including drama and musical theatre. By offering comprehensive training in dance, music, and drama, children will have the opportunity to be well-rounded performers in all disciplines. Students will be exposed to all aspects of theatre, from the audition process to the curtain call.
The program has three instructors to work the different disciplines: Annie Cerillo for acting, Mary Jo Hahn for music, and Andrew Aman for choreography. Cerillo, Hahn and Aman are no strangers to the program. Cerillo and Hahn have directed the group together for several months, while Aman is a graduate of the program.
During the year, Broadway Bound performs throughout the community at various festivals and events. In addition, students have appeared in several productions at the Center, including Oliver!, The Music Man, The Kind and I, Hairspray: The Broadway Musical, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, G2K Once Upon a Mattress and Honk, Jr. In August, students wrote and performed in their own original production of A Day in the Life of…ME!
Broadway Bound meets every Saturday morning from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. The monthly fee is $60 per month. The Center will waive September’s fee as the students and instructors plan for the upcoming year. Auditions will be held every month for new troupe members.
