Fallen Angels – etc. Music School – December 2-4

etc_fallen-angelsetc. Presents: ‘Fallen Angels’
Music and Lyrics by: Mike O’Mara
With Book by: Mike O’Mara, assisted by the Presents cast

A legendary world with ancient laws. A city in the clouds, with peasants below. When a daughter’s compassion marks her unwanted, it sets off a chain of events that will leave both the Angels of the sky and the Terrans on the surface forever changed. “Fallen Angels” weaves a magical tale around the very real-life issues of social justice, gender equality and the corruption of absolute power.

Spring Arts Programs at Noyes

Audition Boot Camp

In four fast-paced weeks, we’ll briefly cover the theater business for kids in Chicago, from “on camera” to auditioning for theater and musicals. Kids will find out how to choose and work on monologues; learn to handle cold copy and dialogue; do “bite and smile” for the camera; and gain knowledge about how to make bold choices. They also will learn how to be comfortable and retain their true self in an audition. The program finishes with an actual audition for local directors, who will give feedback. This is a joint program created by Evanston Children’s Theatre, Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre and the Evanston Arts Camps.
