Do You Hear the People Sing?
We’ve had a great summer at DLC. One of our newest summer traditions was the inaugural Premiere Performers camp: a rigorous 4-week performance camp for students in grades 6-12. They were tasked with producing the epic revolutionary musical Les Misérables: School Edition, and they rose to the occasion. They managed to learn and rehearse the show, as well as present five final performances at Howard High School this summer. We received excellent feedback from parents and students alike. Hear what just a few parents had to say at the conclusion of the camp:
“Not only was the show impressive, the experience was wonderful. My daughter and friends sobbed after the last performance. They’ve never been as close as a cast and they are already committed to return next summer.” Andrea D.
“I can’t say enough how blown away I was by the incredible talent. It’s been a great experience for my daughter. Thank you! She will miss the cast of Les Mis for sure!” –Margaret O.
“Even though my daughter was one of the youngest she said she always felt included by the older kids who looked out for them. This was a hugely ambitious project and it ended up being amazing! Thank you for taking this on and making such a caring environment for all the kids! This is why I love theatre, and now my daughter does, too!” –Alexia C.
“This was an awesome experience!! The older kids were great with my daughter who was one of the youngest in the cast. I truly appreciate the supportive and enriching environment that DLC created for this show. The show was amazing!!!!” –Beth H.
“You can’t tell from this distance but many of the kids, even though they’d never met before, were crying as they took their final bows. In 4 short weeks, you created a family.” –Andrea D.
Many thanks to all of the parents who support their children in the arts, and for our inaugural cast of Premiere Performers at DLC! We hope to see you all again on our stage again very soon. Many of these students will participate in our Fall production classes of Disney’s Newsies (classes for students grades 3-8 are held on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, class for students grades 6-12 meets Saturday mornings). Make sure that you check in to see what we have in store next summer on January 1st when we will release our Summer 2019 schedule and titles.
