Viva La Resistance!
Viva La Resistance!
Join the Tangent Theater Cooperative for our
inaugural production at Louisa Boren STEM K-8!
A dynamic melange of Broadway and Pop music, interspersed with spoken word & poetry and presented within the theme of RESISTANCE, this show will include* selections from Les Miserables, Hamilton, Wicked, Hedwig And The Angry Inch, Steven Universe, and The Little Mermaid, as well as songs by Katy Perry, Tom Waits, Queen, Shirley Bassey, K’NAAN, and other musical revolutionaries.
Our program is open to all STEM students in grades 3-8 (with the inclusion of any 2nd graders who had been signed up for the now-cancelled Sing Out Seattle and Choir after-school programs). Rehearsals will run after school on Tuesdays and/or Fridays from 3:30pm to 5:30pm, beginning April 30th and culminating in public performance(s) during the last week of the program.
There are three options for registration and rehearsals: Tuesdays only, Fridays only, and both Tuesdays & Fridays. This is intended to accommodate as many families’ schedules as possible, and all kids will have the same opportunities for participation regardless of whether they attend one day a week or both. Expecting higher attendance on Tuesday afternoons, our Friday afternoon sessions will likely feature more costume and set design & production activities.
All-cast rehearsals will take place during the two weeks prior to our performance(s), after the end of the regular Spring Enrichment schedule. More precise information and dates will be shared with families following the initial registration period (April 19th-26th).
Parent support is welcome, especially if you have experience in theater (performance and/or production), and signing up to help out once a week will include a 50% discount on registration for your child!! Please contact us directly if you would like to pursue this option.
You will be able to select ONE of the following options below:
Tuesdays only (4/30-6/18): $180
Fridays only (5/3-6/21): $180
Tuesdays & Fridays: $220
Scholarships & alternative payment options are available as needed. Please contact us with any questions!
(*Song selections will be finalized during the first week or so of the program, based on the interests & inclinations of the kids participating. This production is all about the kids owning and advocating for their experience!!)
