My selection for Theo this quarter are his recent accomplishments with acting. He has been interested in acting for years and loves being on stage and performing. He has been in the Paramount Theater Summer Camp for several years and has learned a lot about acting, singing, and dancing from the teachers there. He has also taken classes at Zach Scott performing arts school in acting and improv.
PPC: Most recently (this September), Theo auditioned for a Pre-Professional Group at Zach and got in! About 200 kids auditioned (singing and reading a monologue) and 25 were selected for his group. He will learn acting, singing and dancing during his 3 hour class each week. At the end of the 9 months of training the kids will do a big show. Very exciting!
Cast in The Christmas Carol: The really BIG news is that Theo also auditioned for The Christmas Carol and was cast as Young Scrooge. He will also be in the youth ensemble singing. His time commitment is huge as the rehearsals and shows are many (all of November and December). There is just a single cast so each week they will do 8 performances, about 35 shows in total. So if you decide to see The Christmas Carol at Zach Scott Theater this holiday season, look for Theo and enjoy the show!!
