Central Park Players show opens Thursday

Central Park Players opens its 54th season with "Disney's Camp Rock: The Musical.'
Jul 23, 2012


The musical is the stage adaptation of the “Camp Rock” movies that premiered on the Disney Channel, featuring songs and characters from the 2008 and 2010 movies and a story based on “Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam.”

The four performances take place at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and two performances on Saturday at 3 and 7 p.m.

“Family members of all ages will enjoy the feel-good, high-energy, fast-paced Disney production,” director Natalie Carmolli said. “There is a musical number every few minute,s and the kids are full of energy and bursting with talent, so the audience is certain to have a wonderful time.”

When Camp Rock opens for the summer, Mitchie Torres (Kim Sorenson) arrives and greets her friends from last summer. Everyone is welcomed by Camp Rock’s founder, Brown Cesario (David Theune). When Mitchie starts off Opening Jam, she is joined by Connect 3 front man Shane Gray (Sean Rush) — along with his brothers, Nate (Owen Loughrin) and Jason (Tyler Wiewiora). Then camp diva Tess Tyler (Grace Strauss) takes the stage.

This summer at camp is supposed to be all about the music and having the time of their lives. But Brown’s rival and former bandmate Axel Turner (Chris Chalupa) invites campers to visit the brand new, flashy Camp Star across the lake that now threatens Camp Rock’s very existence. To keep the doors open, Mitchie steps up, rallies her fellow Camp Rockers, and gets them into top shape for the ultimate showdown.

Tickets may be purchased by calling the CPP Box Office at 616-850-6566. The Box Office opens for walk-up sales from 1-3 and 5-7 p.m.

The shows are performed at Lakeshore Middle School, 900 Cutler, Grand Haven. Each performance is about 75 minutes and appropriate for all ages.




I did a few plays with them back in the mid 80's was a blast and the people I met were amazing.
