"Thwacked" Is Coming To Denison, IA

This year's workshop production.

A Fractured Fable of Frogs, Folks and Falling Skies

That's the Children's Musical Theater workshop production for this summer. It's a fun-filled week designed to teach the basics of musical theater to kids in grades K-8 who love singing, dancing and challenges. The workshop runs from June 15-19, 2015 and concludes with a performance for the public on Saturday, June 20. All events will take place at the high school, 819 North 16th St in Denison.

Since its meager beginning in 2004, this popular workshop has blossomed under the direction of Allison Rasmussen, a Manilla native and vocal music instructor at Waverly-Shell Rock Community Schools. This is the ninth year she has volunteered to head this workshop production. She is assisted by a dedicated team, including former students who have aged out of the program. All give a week of their time to help stage the production.

Even local grandparents have discovered a side benefit of the workshop. They enroll their grandchildren in the program and spend quality time with them while they attend the workshop.
