Triad Performing Arts of Arizona is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
Our mission is to support and promote the arts in our community by providing opportunities to perform in high quality productions, just like Annalie and the Circus Show!
Triad was founded in 2020, and so far we have done 2 incredible productions of The Nutcracker Fantasy, which combines the traditional ballet elements of The Nutcracker with acting and singing to help the story come to life in a new way.
Annalie will also incorporate this “triad” of art forms. It is a brand new musical completely imagined and written by people here in the West Valley. We can’t wait for you to see it!
ABOUT ANNALIE AND THE CIRCUS SHOW
Annalie and the Circus show is a heartwarming tale of a young Swan named Annalie who is afraid she doesn’t have a talent. As the middle sister in her family, Annalie is surrounded by people who have big, impressive talents. Annalie’s mother is supportive, but also worries about her daughters after their father disappeared many years earlier. When Annalie leaves home to explore she discovers a “Circus Show” of a Theater Troupe who helps her discover her talent… and a few surprises along the way.
FEES AND VOLUNTEERING
Our budget for Annalie is met through donations, fundraisers, ticket sales, and your participation fee. Please reach out if any fees are a hardship for you. We would like everyone to be a part of the show regardless of financial situation.
Participation fees are as follows:
1 performer: $105, 2 performers: $180, 3 performers: $250
If you are not offered a part, the fee will be refunded. It is our intention that everyone would get a part and be able to participate.
In addition to financial help, we need volunteers! We are asking that all families contribute at least 2 hours of volunteer time to this production. Our volunteer coordinator, Becky Manning, will be in touch to organize sign ups for the different volunteer areas. On your registration form, you will have the opportunity to choose which areas you are interested in.
If you would like to opt out of volunteering, we will charge a $50 volunteer fee, which can be paid on the registration form.
