NPAS Online Classes – Summer Camp LIVE!

Welcome to week 10 of NPAS at Home. We cannot believe that Term 3 has passed and that we didn’t make it to The Olympia Theatre for our Show. The disappointment from Students and Teachers and everyone at the school last weekend was HUGE! But we will return! The Olympia is Booked and we will be in there next April to Dance and Sing and Act and Be Who We All Want to Be!

We are very excited to let you all know that we are working on new Online Classes at NPAS and our first class is available this weekend LIVE from New York with Bianca Paige Smith. This will be the first of many. You can book in by clicking HERE. These first classes are for 12 years plus but we will have lots of new content for all age groups coming up. We are also delighted to say that we are going to run some Online Summer Camps!  These will run Monday – Friday in July / August and will be live Classes with your favourite NPAS Teachers.

We are very excited about going Online with Some of of our Classes and we hope that you will join us when we are LIVE!!

Video Classes & Workshops






‘CAN’T STOP THE FEELING” BY NPAS STUDENTS 
Edited by Ruby Mc Alister

 

For the last week NPAS Students have been sending us videos of them singing Justin Timberlake’s song “Can’t stop the feeling”.
Jill & Ruby have spent the last few days putting all the videos together and we are thrilled with the finished track.
We hope that the video will be used to highlight the appeal for technology for Nursing Homes – spread it everywhere using our hashtag #NPASatHome.

EAMON'S MUSICAL THEATRE TIPS & TREATS!


Smash – A Musical Theatre Sensation

Smash was an American musical theatre elevision series created by playwright Theresa Rebeckn d developed in the USA by the Television Station NBC. Steven Speilberg served as one of the executive producers. The series was broadcast in Ireland on Sky. The series revolves around a fictional theater community and specifically the creation of a new Broadway Musical. It features a large ensemble cast, led by Debra Messing, Jack Davenport, Katherine McPhee, Megan Hilty and Anjelica Houston. The Musical is a Musical about the life of Movie Star Marilyn Monroe and the story of the two Actors vying to play the lead roll.

The show debuted on February 6, 2012, and was a huge success. It ran for two Seasons and has one of the best Soundtracks to any Television Show ever. It is full of huge songs, massive Dance Routines and Fantastic Theatrical Performances. It has become a classic, with many covers of the two main songs from the show being produced. Let me Be Your Star, the first song in the show, and Don’t for get me are both huge songs, and we have used them both in ur Olympia Shows.

The series enjoyed huge critical success. The first season received the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Choreography, with four other nominations.  The series was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award or Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and a Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media – Let Me Be Your Star. This week the cast of the show got back together for a fabulous mix of new live performances and a concert Version of Bombshell. Bombshell as a stand alone Broadway Musical was in the works and will hopefully be in a Theatre soon!

Enjoy these two amazing songs, and the concert ….

…and Remember Everyone.. Musicals are not just for Lockdown, they’re for Life!
