Summer Children’s Theatre: Peas & Harmony

July 16 @ 9:15 am - 12:30 pm

- $40


Compass Creative Dramatics returns with another week long residency in Orange City! Professional actors take students from audition to performance in just five days. On Monday, 1st-8th graders audition and begin rehearsals, and by Friday they are ready to perform a hilarious 60-minute musical!

Peas & Harmony: The Princess & the Pea (remixed)

The trumpets blare, and with them come swashbuckling jesters, dancing peas, a pompous royal entourage, and a zany collection of other delightful kingdom characters! Everyone’s at odds when the time comes for the comic-book-loving prince to find the right girl amongst a gaggle of silly princesses.

Peas & Harmony is a quirky retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Princess & The Pea, in which showing respect might just pave the road to happily ever after!

Stretch your creativity and bravery muscles as we go from audition to performance in just one week!

Students will be rehearsing with professional actors from Chicago’s Compass Creative Dramatics Monday-Friday mornings July 16-20 from 9:15a-12:30p, and will perform their play on Friday and Saturday.
