Aliens in the Castle 2023

Aliens in the Castle returns for a 6th Year of FUN!

Aliens in the Castle is a “series” created exclusively for Not Just Dance. Students love playing aliens and they also love princes, princesses and everything related to castles. We decided – why not combine the two. Each script is written exclusively for this program and uses the theme “Aliens in the Castle”. These fun shows allow all students an opportunity to shine! We are able to write in additional parts and add (or subtract) lines to give each student a chance to have a part that fits their current skill level.


In Rendalina, or From Rags to Riches and Back to Rags Again, newly ordained King Jelliwop of Ogagon must attend a dance to select his new Queen.  Rendalina has demanding stepsisters and a very nice stepmother, but still cannot get away to the attend the dance. Her Substitute Alien Godmother steps in to help. But, this is definitely not your typical Cinderella story. Join our Fun Counselors as students have fun learning Ogagon vocabulary, playing super fun characters, participating in lots of theatre games and getting to put on a show at the end of the week!
