"Pirates! The Musical" Is Coming To Denison, IA

A Musical Theatre Workshop for grades K-8

How do pirates get to be such heroic figures in our modern world? They're dishonest, selfish, smelly, naughty and well, a whole lot of fun. That's how. And, they make terrific subjects for a musical.

It's why our workshop directors picked Pirates! The Musical for our summer production. It's a fun-filled week designed to teach the basics of musical theatre to kids in grades K-8 who love singing, dancing and challenges. The workshop runs from June 17-21. 2013 and concludes with a performance for the public on Saturday, June 22.

We've added something new this year. Former students beyond grade 8 are invited to come back as volunteers to help stage the production. Arrr! You don't even have to be a former student. ANYONE of ANY AGE can offer their assistance. Just contact the Foundation office.

Additional workshop information and tuition rates can be found by downloading our registration form or by calling 712.263.3334 or by stopping at the Donna Reed Foundation office, 1305 Broadway, Denison, IA.
