Adelaide's upcoming stars put on a captivating performance
Admittedly, as I walked up the stairs and approached the theatre, feelings of ambivalence were at bay. It was a Saturday afternoon, and I was about to watch a theatre camp performance. Surely I must have a child performing, or was being asked along to watch our cutest little family member perform. Yes? No. It probably isn't how you would expect someone in their late twenties without children to spend their weekend but it was genuinely a lot of fun.

Music Theatre Camp, established by Pelican Productions, brings together talented young people between 8-19 years to create an energetic theatre show. The camp runs over 2 weeks and provides a range of vocal tutors and choreographers to help coach the young people to present their best show.

2016 delivered 'A Walk in the Woods' in which the theme is based on "Into the Woods" by Stephen Sondheim. The show provided acts from a range of different musicals including Something Rotten, My Fair Lady, Wizard of Oz/Wicked, School of Rock, Matilda, Seussical the Musical, Into the Woods, Finding Neverland and Starlight Express.

The mashup of songs and acts work really well together providing a performance with an uplifting intensity that will guarantee to leave you smiling.

It was evident from the performance I viewed that Music Theatre Camp focuses on bringing each young persons individual talent to light. Each young person brought their personality to the show through acting, song and dance. Furthermore, the cast was diverse and didn't play on stereotypical gender roles.

A Walk in the Woods created a fun and entertaining atmosphere and the mixture of acts it caters for a range of audiences, taking you on an exciting journey along the way.
