More than 40 students ages 7 to 18 are registered and will be performing “Broadway Mania,” an original script written by Nunn. Students will study method acting and drama from the Greek to the modern era six hours a day for ten days culminating with a two-hour production, said Nunn.

Assisting Nunn will be Ilona Duncan, musical director; Sue Broadway, professional dancer; Joanne Haynie, dance teacher; Robin Blake, director at Lancaster Players and Lancaster Middle School; Elaine Parrish, former teacher; Mei-Li Beane, musician; Pat Kopcsak, former teacher; and Spike Nunn, former Marine and disciplinarian.

Donna Helmuth will be in charge of programs. Bob Walker will be at the light board and Bruce Hamilton and Luke Rawls will be the sound engineers.  Video taping will be by Dick Allen. Professional actor Randall Tyler will be the guest speaker at the workshop.

The students will participate in a Greek chorus, a Shakespearean spoof, a fairy tale, Japanese NOH theatre, scenes from “Anastasia,” “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” and “Henry V,” along with songs “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” “To Dream the Impossible Dream,” “She’s Got You,” “Broadway Baby,” “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B,” “Give My Regards to Broadway,” and “Who Wrote the Book of Love?” Dance numbers will be “Billie Jean,” “Cotton-Eyed Joe,” and “Just Dance.”

The band 30-30 will play “Living After Midnight,” along with a student guitar solo and a story “Someone’s Eating the Sun.”  The show will showcase lip sycning and line-dancing. Two youngsters will dance the salsa, tango, and quick step to “You Are My Sunshine.”

The talented youngsters will perform shows at The Playhouse at 7 p.m. July 19 and 20. Call 435-0803 for reservations.
