iTheatrics will feature the HSMT students in DVDS for four musicals with choreography by iTheatrics’ chief choreographer, Steven G. Kennedy. The nationally distributed DVDS will be used by thousands of schools and educational musical theatre groups across the United States. Theatre Under the Stars’ Manager of Education, Shay Rogers, will be the assistant choreographer.
This will be the first time these DVDs will be filmed outside of New York City.
Rogers explained how excited they are to be part of this project.
“These spectacular students have worked countless hours on this project and have impressed us all. This entire experience has proven incredibly rewarding, and TUTS is honored that iTheatrics chose our students to take on such a big task,” she said.
This unique opportunity for the HSMT students has them thrilled to be working with the iTheatrics team in Houston.
“This project has definitely challenged me in a good way, and I have learned a lot of new things,” said Doreen Litvak, a 13 year old HSMT student who attends the Awty International School. “Working with an amazing team made this project even better. I absolutely loved this project, and I am really glad I did it.”
Ashton Lambert, 14, also a HSMT students attends The Kinkaid School. He’s elated to be part of the project. “The best part for me is the fact that we are helping other kids do musical theatre who may not have been able to do it without our help. I have such great memories from my first show at school, and I want other students to have that same experience,” he said.
