The challenges of a graduation production
Disney Camp Rock has been the graduation production for the students graduating at Stage School Hamburg in the summer of 2013. This year, only those students who actually passed their exams, have been entitled to perform in the show. With the exams having taken place just before the scheduled start of rehearsals, castings and rehearsals were subject to a fairly ambitious schedule from the outset. Nevertheless, the creative team were really looking forward to this production: it is always a challenge for graduate showcases to get the balance right between showcasing the cast’s talents and keeping the show exciting for the audience. Also, the students are supposed to work under realistic professional circumstances on this project at the very end of their training. Disney Camp Rock provided a large degree of flexibility for the casting and a great night out for the audience; it surely required its cast to give their all!
Performances have taken place between 21 and 30 June, 2013 in K2 at Kampnagel in Hamburg. Further details on the production can be found at: www.camprock-musical.de.
