Summer School on Stage

Thirty six area students have spent the past month living in River City – preparing to bring the fictional Iowa town to life during the stage production of “The Music Man Junior” at Salina Community Theatre.

“They work their little hienies off for 4 weeks and then they put up a show,” said Shannon Garretson, Education Director at SCT.

Garretson joined in on the KSAL Morning News with a look at the program that gives students in the 4th through 8th grades an intense 4-week course in singing, acting and dancing.

“A lot of our students are in our classes during the year and are in other productions, but we do get some kiddos who have never been in a show before,” Garretson said.

Performances of “The Music Man Junior” which runs about 90-minutes with an intermission are on July 8th, 9th and 10th and tickets are available at the SCT box office.

“We would love for anyone to come out and see the show, it’s delightful,” Garretson said.
