Did you know that there is a real theater on the campus of Pinewood Country Club and a theater group that has operated continuously since 1990? The theater is the Pinewood Playhouse, the theater group is Pinewood Players and the organization will be celebrating its 30th anniversary with special events this coming season. More information about the 30th anniversary events will be announced soon.
A very important annual event and tradition sponsored by Pinewood Players is the youth theater drama camp which will celebrate the 19th year of this tradition this season with a special camp and production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” The storyline follows the classic biblical tale of Joseph and his coat of many colors set to the spellbinding music of Andrew Lloyd Webber. The Narrator guides the audience through the musical journey that follows Joseph from innocent young dreamer to slave, prisoner, dream interpreter and finally to Egyptian nobleman who saves the country from famine and becomes right hand man to the Pharaoh, whose character is more than vaguely reminiscent of another popular “king” (of rock & roll…thank ya, thank ya vera much). In the end, Joseph tests the honesty of his brothers, teaches them a valuable lesson, forgives them for their wrongdoing and the entire family is happily reunited at last in a grand finale. The music is classic Andrew Lloyd Webber, the lyrics by Tim Rice are both amusing and haunting, the choreography is lively and there are plenty of fun parts for the kids to enjoy.
Pinewood Players welcomes all youngsters ages 7 through 18 to attend Drama Camp 2020 and participate in this exceptional live theater opportunity to act on stage in a real theater with professional lighting and sound systems, stunning costumes and spectacular sets. Our campers will create memories to last a lifetime under the direction of award winning youth theater Director and Choreographer Dale Nakagawa of the Scottsdale Greasepaint Theater, our professional Music Director Sandra Dyke and an outstanding staff of experienced Teacher/Producers who will help guide the drama camp participants through this amazing experience. What could be more fun than making new friends, singing, dancing and performing on stage in a classic musical in the cool pines of Munds Park this summer?
