Script to Stage – Creating TNB Theatre School’s Annual Big-Stage Musical.
Presented by Stantec
(Fredericton) Theatre New Brunswick Theatre School are proud to announce a new video series offering a behind the scenes look at the making of their Senior Musical Theatre program’s annual big stage musical. This year, students are hard at work preparing their production of Shrek, The Musical. Through this series, Stantec will help to highlight the many students and their efforts to bring this musical to the Fredericton Playhouse stage.
“Every thriving community has a vibrant arts community. That’s why Stantec invests in creativity by supporting the TNB Theater School,” said Mark Scaplen, Stantec Vice President for New Brunswick & PEI. “The Senior Musical Students put a lot of work and dedication into creating an amazing large-scale event on the Playhouse stage. We’re looking forward to helping bring some much-deserved attention to these students and all their hard work through this unique video series.”
The Senior Musical Theatre program involves students grades 9 to 12, together with a team of professional theatre creators who work to give the casts a fully produced professional theatre experience on one of New Brunswick’s premiere performance stages.
“We’re so pleased to have the support of Stantec in this new initiative,” said TNB Director of Communications and Development Matt Carter. “Our Senior Musical Theatre students spend over eight months rehearsing and crafting this show and we feel it’s as important to celebrate their efforts on a weekly/monthly basis and it is when they take to the stage.
“When we see a show on stage, we don’t often take the time to think of just how much work goes into making it all happen,” he Carter. “Through this series, made possible by the generous support of our friends at Stantec, we’re able to lift the curtain on a full season of hard work and celebrate the dedication and talent of these amazing students.”
