We hope you’ve had a wonderful summer, full of music and dancing! If you caught one or more of our 7 shows this summer, you’ll know that our 2015 Summer Camp Series was a huge success! Thank you for supporting performing arts in our community, and for doing it with such style!
As Savannah Children’s Theatre continues to grow, we are expanding our Dance for Musical Theatre program. This year, we will be adding another level of Aerial Silks, as well as welcoming a new teacher into the SCT Family! Please meet Elizabeth Brookman!
Originally from South Carolina, Elizabeth began her training with Ann Brodie at the Carolina Ballet. She had further training at the Atlanta Ballet School, American Ballet Theater, and Joffrey Ballet, then graduated from North Carolina School of the Arts and joined the Morgan/Scott Ballet Company in NYC. Falling in love with the performing and traveling, she performed on luxury cruise ships for five years and was able to visit over one hundred countries. Shows included the classical ballets Swan Lake, Aida, and Carmen, as well as musicals Cats, Cabaret, Chicago and Thoroughly Modern Millie. Elizabeth moved to China in 2007 to join the Suzhou Ballet Theater. After one year with the company she moved to Shanghai to perform and teach for Jazz Du Funk until 2015. Elizabeth looks forward to calling Savannah her home and sharing her experiences to inspire future performers.
We are thrilled to be able to give SCT students the opportunity to learn from theatre artists from all walks of life. Elizabeth has already choreographed for this year’s Dance Camp, The Colors of My Life, and our Summer Camp production of Thoroughly Modern Millie. She is warm, kind, incredibly talented, and definitely a little on the goofy side! Our resident choreographer, Jenn Doubleday, will continue to grow and develop our Aerial Silks program, as well as providing choreography for all Junior Company, Kids on Stage, and Main Stage productions.
Of course, dance is faaaaaar from the only thing SCT has to offer! This year we have Creative Dramatics for PreK – 1st graders, Creative Dramatics I (The Emperor’s New Clothes) for 2nd-5th graders, Creative Dramatics II (Great Expectations the Musical) for middle schoolers, and Junior Company (A Servant of Two Masters) for high school students!
