Week In Magic: Upper Darby Summer Stage July 8th-13th (Photos)
Luner on Theatre is kicking off a Brand New Blog Series Today! As we work to bring you more coverage of theatre happening over the summer, we’ve decided to use some of the very resources in front of us as we speak! Last Summer, Upper Darby Summer Stage began a Photo of the Day series which brought a visual to its entire social media audience daily about what’s happening that day! We’ve decided to collect those photos now every week and turn them into a feature we bring to you! Today, Luner on Theatre brings you our first installment of the new series Week In Magic!
Monday: Our first tech day of the season! Every Monday, Upper Darby Summer Stage achieves the impossible and manages to tech their entire children’s theatre production happening that week in one day! The morning is a cue to cue rehearsal and the afternoon is filled with two runs of the show! Here, the Flat Stanley cast works through a song in the cue to cue!
Tuesday: The Rising Stars are hard at work on their show, A Disney Spectacular! The Rising Star program is the stepping stone between the Apprentice Program and Children’s Theatre Program so kids have the chance to work on a full-scale show in a smaller environment first. Here, choreographer Meghan Dietzler works with the kids who are performing the show in the round at Highland Park Elementary School this Friday!
Wednesday: Opening Day! Upper Darby Summer Stage finally kicked off its 38th season opening with The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley Jr.! Before every show, the cast and ushers perform the Summer Stage song titled “Magic Up Our Sleeve”! Here, the cast, ushers and Mr. Dietzler finish out the song right before the show begins!
Thursday: General meetings are a longtime tradition at Upper Darby Summer Stage! Filled with announcements Summer Stager of the Week Awards and a whole lot of fun, the meetings take place every Thursday from 12:30 to 1 PM! Here, the Box Office staff awards their Usher and Gusher (Group Ushers) of the week!
Friday: Summer Stage’s fourth children’s theatre show of the season began rehearsals this week! The fun new musical is one of many making it’s Summer Stage premiere and will play on the stage July 31st, August 1st and August 2nd! Here, the cast of Freckleface Strawberry practices music in the chorus room!
