Song and Dance extravaganza to take over Grace Tipling

By Marni Walsh

The kids of LP Stage Productions' That's Entertainment Jr. took a quick break from their busy rehearsal schedule to pose for a cast shot. Described as a “song and dance extravaganza” the show runs only this week from the 16th to the 19th at Grace Tipling in the Town Hall. The show features 40 talented, local kids who are hoping for sell out crowds. Director Alison Port says the show is “a variety of old and new songs and dances from the Junior Broadway shows.”

Because LP was unable to take all the kids who wanted to be involved in their Christmas Production “ A Christmas Story,” they decided to add on That's Entertainment Jr. to their busy schedule. “This is an opportunity to introduce the LP theatrical process to new and younger children. “It's a good way for the younger ones to be involved in some way, whether it's just a few lines for the shyer kids, or maybe a few solo lines,” says the director. They get used to being on stage and overcoming stage fright and nerves. Tickets for That's Entertainment are only $10.00 each with  $1.00 from each ticket sale going to Shelburne Food Bank.

A Christmas Story – The Musical runs from December 1-10th. Tickets are $15.00 and $12.00 for kids. Tickets for both shows can be purchased on LP Stage Productions' website or by calling the Shelburne Town Hall at 519-925-2600.  Ms. Port, who is the co-producer of LP Stage Productions along with Dale Lundy, says they have approximately  40 kids in that show, plus adults. Wyatt Goheen will playing the endearing character of “Ralphie;” Wyatt also played Oliver earlier in the year. Connor Warzin plays Randy, Chris Warzin plays The Old Man, Sarah Alexander plays the Mother, Jack Brooks plays Jean Shepherd, and Kristen Gamache, also well known as LP's choreographer, plays Miss Shields, the teacher. “A Christmas Story is a fun show with lots of great musical numbers, from cowboys to gangsters,” says Ms. Port. “It's a classic Christmas movie, and Fox is actually airing the live musical in December on TV.” Alison Port will direct and Noni Thomas will be the musical director for both shows. LP's shows are a get way to get into the Christmas spirit while supporting local arts development for a big group of hard working kids. Photo by Brody Ireton courtesy of LP Stage Productions.
