Youth Acting Workshop
October 3 Through December 12
Have a budding young actor in your family? Trackside Theater’s Youth Acting Workshop will begin on October 3 and run through December 12 (with breaks for Halloween and Thanksgiving). The Workshop will meet on Tuesday evenings from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. to learn all of the basics from one of our veteran performers. Children 8 to 12 will participate in scene studies and monologues and learn diction, volume, movement, and focus on stage. Has your child already been involved in a few plays? This is a perfect opportunity for them to brush up on their skills and learn new ones. The class will culminate in a performance for family members on December 12. The class will be led by Luray’s Neska Laflamme, who has more than 60 years’ theater experience teaching, directing and working with kids. Cost: $45 per child.

It’s Christmas Eve and the Partridge family can’t wait to fly south for the holidays…that is, until they find themselves snowed in at the airport! Poor Jenny Partridge is forced to endure more than the usual family torture: a mother who can’t cook to save her life; an embarrassing dad who thinks he is James Bond; and an incredibly annoying little brother whose sole goal in life is to drive everyone crazy.
Now she has to deal with love-struck Kevin Schneider, the boy who has been writing love poems to her since kindergarten; an overzealous but lovable security guard with an itchy trigger finger; a grouchy old airline manager, ironically named Mr. Smiley; and (horror of all horrors) Kevin’s dictatorial mother, who is determined to Martha Stewart-ize the entire airport – and everyone in it!
But somewhere amidst the “Tannen-bomb” threats, poisonous strudel, marriage proposals, and full-body tackles, Jenny discovers that Christmas isn’t about where you are: it’s about the people you’re with.
Written by Megan Orr and directed by Barbara Baker and Janell Robish, the cast includes Kevin Kite, Tina Switzer, Claire Switzer, Lily Robisch, CJ Zitzer, Brandi Prudham, Dave Switzer, Alison Coltrane and Bernie Miller
