Based on a Puerto Rican myth The Legend of the Hummingbird, this original production produced by the Musical Theater and Performance Program at BMS celebrates the rich indigenous and Latin cultural heritage of America. Alida and the Hummingbird tells a touching story of true love that inspires caring and compassion for all beings and builds bridges in times of conflict. Vivid images of flowers, colorful birds, and goddesses like Atabey will help the young performers tell the inspirational story. Don't miss this beautiful production with original music and script by Pamela Martinez and Patricia Cardona.
BMS's Musical Theater and Performance Program is designed to introduce children into the world of musical theater and performance through an 18-week intensive course that culminates in fully produced performances at the BMS Playhouse. The program is open to all children ages 6-13, who have the desire to share the stage with fellow child performers. Classes are taught by teachers with world-class backgrounds in musical theater, opera, dance, and drama. The program is defined by the philosophy that every child can find their creative voice on stage, combined with intensive training in the fundamentals of vocal performance and building a dramatic vocabulary that ties with their emotions and lived experiences. Comprehensive, friendly, and exciting, this is the perfect way to introduce kids to performance and theater!
