The Hunchback of notre dame
The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be "Out There," observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all.
peter and the starcatcher
Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors, Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.
The Power of Your Vote
It costs anywhere from $6-10k to put on a single production. Royalties, scripts, costumes, set materials, technical materials, professional stipends, and other production costs from this are barely covered by ticket sales and tuition costs, which we strive to keep as low as possible to allow full access. But our program is growing vigorously and last season 38% of our participants utilized our scholarship fund to participate. So, when we fundraise for programming we are also fundraising to enable students for whom full tuition can be a financial burden. WCT has never turned a child away for financial reasons, and we work hard to keep the scholarship fund coffers prepared to handle the needs of this community’s young people. If you break all that down, it means that with little to no profit made on productions, fundraising is a critically necessary piece of our program to help cover operational costs like staff, facilities, program development, grant writing, and more.
Thank you for supporting the community, collaboration, and creative space Whidbey Children's Theater provides to the youth of our community through training in the performing arts!
Online voting is open from Wednesday, February 15th to Friday, April 28th.
Final rounds of voting will take place at Raise the Curtain on Saturday, April 29th at Whidbey Children's Theater. There the productions to raise the most money will be revealed, along with the rest of our 2017-2018 Season.
