What's Included

This musical is unlike anything else: it’s the first show ever to be composed entirely in 8-bit synthesizers reminiscent of those incredible soundtracks from the original Nintendo and Sega consoles. PRESS START transports us inside the bright, pixelated world of video games. When the famous characters we know and love run out of lives, they decide to put on a musical fundraiser that will help them raise gold rings and play on. Through hilarious and heartfelt musical numbers we see the heroes, villains and sidekicks like we’ve never seen them before. But when things go terribly awry, it’s the quiet sidekick Little Mushroom who must find the hero within to help save the day. Kids love video games, and they will LOVE to play these famous video game characters on stage. While the majority of characters were inspired by the early Nintendo/Sega games of the 90’s, we’ve also thrown in a few updated characters including “Square Builder Eve” and “Angry Birdy”. Performance- June 25th

About This Organizer

The Georgetown Palace Theatre Education Department is dedicated to training young artists and adults in theatre arts and to providing age appropriate performance opportunities. 

 

Our mission is to foster a lifelong appreciation of live theatre by providing a safe and healthy environment for training and creative self-expression, while building self-confidence and collaboration and leadership skills through the performing arts.

 

During the academic year we offer after school and evening classes in acting, dance, and vocals. Our Education Productions offer performance opportunities to those students who are ready to put their skills to work. Productions rehearse weekends and culimate in public performaces on one of our Palace stages. 

 

When school is out, our curtain goes up! We offer School Day Out Camps and a Spring Break Camps, giving students an abreviated, yet rich emersion into theatre arts. 

 

During the summer, we offer multiple Theatre Camps where every young artist is cast in an amazing show! Performers are split into groups by age: ages 7-9, 10-12, and teenagers. All campers attend daily class in acting, vocals, dance, stagecraft, amung others. Each camp culminates in a public performance for family and friends.
