Alice In Wonderland Rocked!

October 20, 2010

We recently had a group named Titus Productions produce and perform a rendition of Alice in Wonderland at the Midvale Main Street Theatre. This was a great piece of Community Theatre that added so many new faces to our stage. These delightful performances were a musical parody using modern ballads and rock music to emphasize the emotional twists of the story.

The creative story modifications were from the brilliance of Director/Producer Jake Andersen and we look forward to more productions from this group in the near future.

Performing Arts AcademyThank You, Community, For a Spectacular Benefit Show

Last night at the Midvale Main Street Theatre, we completed our First Annual Benefit program with a huge amount of success. We want to thank the myriad of participants who did everything from appearing to perform on stage, sing, act, dance, bake goods, donate gorgeous items for our silent auction, and leave donations. This event in all ways was over and above everything what we could have hoped for. Thank you to Kait Eckman and The Performer Studio for your generous participation, to Actor, Eric McGraw for his generous time and entertainment, and to the Valle family for showing us not only your amazing talents but also sharing such a beautiful piece of your heritage with all of us.

Thank you each and every one of you for the hours you donated caring about a family within our community and showing it in such a gracious way.

Thank you also for being so willing to play full-out! It was fun having community Karaoke as part of this event and seeing people jump right in and play. This gathering was fun, heart-felt, and because of every one of you, it certainly will continue throughout the years.

First Annual MiLee Arlene Smedshammer Benefit

July 25, 2010

Benefit NightMiLee Arlene Smedshammer was like a shooting star. Impatiently, she came into her family’s life on her own time schedule. Knowing she had limited time to shine her light and a very important message to share, she greatly impacted many people in her short lifetime. Her little body was not perfect however her attitude and fighting spirit were. And with that she taught us to value what is truly important in life.

The Midvale Main Street Theatre is proud to present:

Michael Jackson Tribute Concert

A Michael Jackson Tribute Concert

at the Midvale Main Street Theatre

WHY MJ? Because as a performer he was pure genius! His attention to detail and dedication to his craft provides such a rich landscape of material to learn from for young performers to strive to be their best. He also embodied the saying we use most at The Performer Studio: “Amateurs practice until they get it right, but Professionals practice until they CAN’T get it wrong.” -unknown author-

WHY THIS Tribute? Both students and audiences can learn a great deal about this incredible performance and pop music icon. His devotion to children, the Earth and justice in our world is monumental. His songs teach us, his actions as a private citizen teach us and his artistry teaches us about how to care better for our world and each other, how to get more out of life and how to honor who we each truly are as individuals.

WHY NOW? With his untimely passing last June, the sting of his absence still rings in our hearts. Kait Kingston-Eckman, as director of The Performer Studio, hopes to educate both our students and our audiences about the REAL Michael Jackson. I personally was one of the many, many people who went from being an avid fan back in the 1980’s to misunderstanding the many changes and media gossip that spread about MJ. I sadly was one of the people who judged him without knowing the full story. Since researching MJ for this tribute and working so closely with all the aspects of his repertoire with my students, I have come to know him in a very new and eye-opening way. One that made me so sad I had waited until after his passing to truly understand this amazing artist and human being. I bemoan the fact that I cannot ever experience seeing him perform live. I also think it important to “not judge a book by its cover” because until you have “walked a mile in his shoes” you cannot throw that first stone. I believe MJ was more widely loved all over the world than any other artist, possibly ever. And I ALSO believe that he was one of the most ostracized artists in the world…possibly ever as well. I hope with our small Tribute to his life and art we can help more people see his beauty than did before. It’s important to realize the beauty that we each have contact with while it is still in our lives. MJ wherever you are…we thank you and hope to make you proud with this small tribute. We miss you. We invite you all to join us in this tribute on May 8, 2010 for two performances (2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.) at the Midvale Main Street Theatre.
