Frances and the Sea

Sparkle on Stage presents

DIRECTOR'S NOTE:  Frances and The Sea came about as I sat looking out at the canal behind our beautiful new location on the Nautical Mile.  Every summer I pick songs that the cast may not be familiar with in order to open their eyes to new genres of music.  This year I was busy thinking about the ocean and adventure, which became the basis for this show.  While looking for appropriate sea songs, I found a few that I hadn't heard before.  After I found the songs, I asked my student intern Derik Bazemore listen to them and told him to write a story that would tie them together.  He did ... and Frances and the Sea was born! 

 

This is the first production that has been rehearsed and performed on our stage.  It is exciting to see the new space come alive.  On a personal note, it is a bit cliche to say but it is a dream come true.  I have been working on creating a space like this for over 10 years and finally, the Sparkle on Stage Players have a stage of their own.  Thank you to all those that have believed in my dream and supported my passion over the past decade-plus.  Thank you to those that are helping to support it now and will keep supporting it in the future.   ~Robyn Workman

DIRECTOR'S NOTE:  "Once on This Island" is a story about a girl saved by the G-ds.  She is raised by villagers and ultimately saves a boy from the “other side“ of the island.  She falls in loves with him as she nurses him back to health and hopes that he will fall in love with her and marry her.  Only to find out that the beauxhomme (wealthy) do not marry villagers.  It is a story of cultures mixing, or rather not being allowed to.

The music is what drew me in.  The Caribbean flavors, the rhythmic feels, and the beautiful melodies.  Get lost in the “Jewel of the Antilles’ “ as I have and enjoy Sparkle on Stage's production of Once on This Island.   ~Robyn Workman

The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker and the Mouse King

A staged reading of a Christmas Classic

Happy Holidays!   Sparkle on Stage, Inc. proudly presents “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.”    Traditionally performed as a ballet, the piece was written by E.T.A. Hoffmann and accompanied by a score by Pyotor Ilyich Tchaikovsky.  Our rendition of this Christmas classic is filled with humor and reimagines the piece while maintaining its musical aspects.

Theatre is a collaborative art form by nature and so in that spirit, the children and parents had a large part in the creation of what you will see today.  From the props to the choreography, to the musical selections, we worked together as a  team. It was such a joy to watch their imaginations soar and it truly reminds us here at Sparkle on Stage of how vital the arts are to our children's education and growth.

DECEMBER 12 performance

  • Opening -- The Home of Doctor and Mrs. Stahlbaum

  • March of Toy Soldiers -- The Nutcracker and the Mouse King

  • The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies -- The World of the Sugar Plum Fairies

  • The Russian Dance -- The Kingdom of Sweets
