A Message from Laura Drake, Stage Struck Founder & Director

Hello, Stage Struck Families!

This past fall, we saw wonderful performances from the students participating in our Musical Movies of Hamilton and Advanced Hamilton! Bravo to all. This winter and into the spring, we’re offering Peter Pan (ages 7-12) and Into the Woods (ages 11-16). Please join us in creating these timeless stories! For those who are new to our Musical Movies, please read the description below – it really is a combination of theatre and film!

We are also offering Hip-Hop with Avery again (ages 9-16) with professional dancer and Master Class instructor Avery Gardner (he’s danced for the Seattle Seahawks and Macklemore too!) 

We hope to see you on the virtual stage! 

Laura and the Stage Struck team


What is a “Musical Movie?”

We’ve combined key elements of musical theatre and film to bring you “Musical Movies.” Here’s our process: Once actors have learned the choreography, songs, and scenes, using industry film terminology such as “rolling, action, cut,” we record the show scene by scene and edit it into a movie with special effects! For our final performance, family and friends gather at home to watch the premiere of our film, after which actors get to take a final bow in real-time. All families receive the link to the film to download after the premiere.
