The Nibley Children's Theatre is excited to announce our 37th Year! Our first show, The Selfish Giant was presented in 1983 with a handful of local children. Over the years, hundreds of children have grown up on this stage, have found a voice in the crowd, and have gained confidence and courage through their experiences here. Today we still have many people in our community who were in some of those first shows, and now watch their own children enjoy the uplifting experiences of singing, dancing and acting.
This year we will follow a Human Prince and Princess on An Amazing Adventure. They will join forces with an Elvin Prince and Princess as they attempt to free their friends from a tribe of underground Trolls. Along the way we will meet a myriad of amazing creatures, including trolls, wolf-dogs, cave bats, Luna moths, and a frightening (but not too frightening) Mountain Monster.
All Nibley Residents ages 5 (going into Kindergarten) up to age 18 are welcome to join us. During this two week program, your child will learn at least one song and dance, how to perform on stage, and have a lot of fun! This program is Free, we just ask that each family volunteer their time in helping make costumes, lead groups, craft, create scenery, etc. A minimum of 4 hours.... (See the Volunteer Information tab for more info.)
Auditions: If your child would like to Audition for a speaking part please register them above and then come to Nibley City Hall anytime during auditions: May 10th 5-8 pm or May 11th 9 am-12pm. Please have a short, acapella song prepared and we will have you read some lines from the play.
Older children can also sign up to be stage crew, however please note that starting this year stage crew member will be required to be at all "lead character" practices.
Rehearsals are every week day in the mornings, Mon-Fri , June 10-19.
Due to our limited number of practices, all cast members and crew must be at EVERY rehearsal in order to do the show.
Performances are Thursday June 20 and Friday June 21 at 7pm. All rehearsals and performances are at the Nibley City Park on 3200 South. In the event of rain we will meet at the church just west of the park or the city offices to the South.
