Theatre Department

Maria Montessori once said that “Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create.”

Innovation Montessori is offer a full drama program with a multi-tiered approach! When integrating drama into a Montessori environment, we take very seriously the second plane of development - where children explore real life through imagination. Giving children the ability to explore storytelling and learning concepts through the arts is an amazing thing to witness, and we hope you partner with us in our endeavor each step of the way.

Students in Lower and Upper Elementary will attend drama class as part of our enrichment program. Classes meet once a week and will cover a variety of topics.

Students in Middle School and IMHS may select Musical Theatre One as an elective. Classes meet 4 times per week.

Productions

In addition to offering drama, musical theatre, and music to students, Innovation Montessori in the arts produces a number of shows throughout the year.

Synopsis:

Disney’s Aladdin JR. is based on the 1992 Academy-Award®-winning film and the 2014 hit Broadway show about the “diamond in the rough” street rat who learns that his true worth lies deep within.

The story you know and love has been given the royal treatment! Aladdin and his three friends, Babkak, Omar, and Kassim, are down on their luck until Aladdin discovers a magic lamp and the Genie who has the power to grant three wishes. Wanting to earn the respect of the princess, Jasmine, Aladdin embarks on an adventure that will test his will and his moral character.

Winter 2018 The Enchanted Bookshop

Synopsis:

During the day, A Likely Story may look like any other used bookstore.  But at night, it’s a place where magic happens.  That’s when the characters inside the books come alive.  Six of those characters — Dorothy Gale, Robin Hood, Pollyanna, Sherlock Holmes, Heidi, and Tom Sawyer — long to help Margie, the scatterbrained owner, save her struggling store.  But they’re not allowed to leave the building or be seen by human eyes.  So when a pair of smugglers comes looking for a stolen necklace hidden inside one of the books, the characters are torn.  Should they warn Margie and risk disappearing forever?  Or can they find a way to defeat the crooks without being seen?  Featuring additional appearances by such beloved literary characters as the Queen of Hearts, Long John Silver, and Doctor Dolittle, this charming comedy celebrates the joy of reading in a fresh, fun-filled way.
