Apr 16, 2024

Lincoln Trail College is preparing for two Children’s Summer Theater productions this June.
Disney and Pixar’s Finding Nemo KIDS is scheduled for children entering 1st – entering 5th grade, meeting weekdays from May 28th – June 28th from 9 a.m.-11 am. Show times will be June 27th and 28th at 7 p.m.
Dive into the big blue world of Disney and Pixar’s Finding Nemo KIDS! This new stage musical, designed for elementary school-aged performers, is a 30-minute adaptation of the beloved 2003 Pixar movie Finding Nemo, with new music by award-winning songwriting team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Marlin, an anxious and over-protective clownfish, lives in the Great Barrier Reef with his kid Nemo, who longs to explore the world beyond their anemone home. But when Nemo is captured and taken to Sydney, Marlin faces his fears and sets off on an epic adventure across the ocean. With the help of lovable characters such as optimistic Dory, laid-back sea turtle Crush, and the supportive Tank Gang, Marlin and Nemo both overcome challenges on their journey to find each other and themselves. Featuring memorable songs such as “Just Keep Swimming,” “Fish Are Friends Not Food,” and “Go With the Flow,” Finding Nemo KIDS brings a vibrant underwater world to life on stage in a story full of family, friendship, and adventure.
The Zwermann Arts Center will be filled by the smell of rebellion when LTC’s CST presents Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical JR. The Arts at Lincoln Trail College will have children entering 6th – entering 9th grade performing Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical JR. May 28th – June 28th from 12-2 p.m. weekdays with performances on June 29th at 7 p.m. and June 30th at 2 p.m. New this year Matilda The Musical JR. will have early auditions on May 13th and 14th from 4-6 p.m., children will only need to attend one night.
Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical JR. is adapted from the full-length musical which was based on the book by Roald Dahl, and features a book by Dennis Kelly and music and lyrics by Tim Minchin. The show opened on the West End in 2011 and made its Broadway premiere in 2013. The musical earned seven Olivier Awards, including “Best New Musical,” and five Tony awards, including The Tony for “Best Book of a Musical.” 

Matilda, a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers, lives with cruel parents who find her to be a nuisance, a lousy little worm, and a bore. When Matilda enters her first term at school, she captures the attention of Miss Honey, a kind teacher, and the two form a wonderful friendship. Unfortunately, the school is ruled by a tempestuous and mean headmistress named Miss Trunchbull, who hates children and delivers cruel and unjust punishments to all her charges. Matilda is determined to change her story, but will her cleverness and courage be enough to withstand the reign of Miss Trunchbull?
The CST cast for both shows includes up to 50 students each, led by Mindy Evans.  Cost is $150 cash or check due with completed registration forms. Registration is April 27th, 2024 from 8-10 a.m. in the Zwermann Art Center hallway.
