When You Wish Upon A Star

Posted on 9 November, 2016 at 14:00 Comments comments (1)

Can-do Theatre children's program is within weeks away from our one night only performance of "When You Wish Upon A Star!". This musical tribute to Disney features 14 actors ages 4-12 performing some of our favorite moments from the Disney Library such as, Peter Pan, Snow White, Alladin, Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and more. 

This year I made the choice to move our children's program to Chippewa Highschool so that our actors acan have the experience of peroming in a "Big" theatre!  We also have happily out grown the size of the stage and audience at One Kids Place due to the growing numbers and success of the program!

So we do hope you will join us for a super cute night of theatre to mark the beginning of the holiday season! Monday December 5 2016 at Chippewa High School at 6:30 pm! Come celebrate our actors accomplishments and feel the magic of Can-do Theatre!
