Aliens in the Castle 2024

Aliens in the Castle returns for a 7th 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.

July 15 – 19, 2024

9 am – 3 pm daily (Extended day available. See below. Contact us to register.)

Performances: July 19 (at 6 pm and 7:30 pm)

Princess Bethany is not your typical princess. And, King Reginald and Queen Meradith are besides themselves figuring out what to do. While Bethany would prefer to play games with her best friend Skylar, the King and Queen wish she would keep her imagination in check and act like a proper princess like her sisters, Patricia and Victoria. The King’s Right hand, Winston and the King’s Left Hand, Oscar, try to help the King. They end up employing the services of Christian, Kristian and Christiane to help. Meanwhile, in a far away planet, Edward makes a drastic mistake involving a Pelaganza Mule (Mulie). His boss, Zerrick and another employee, Harrizof, attempt to fix the problem by heading to Earth in search of Mulie. Chaos ensues as Princess Bethany finds Mulie and everyone searches for both Princess Bethany and Mulie. This production as two different endings. The 2nd ending is conceived in the imagination of our alien narrators, Ignatius and Luitalia. Not Just Dance will present the alternate ending at the 7 pm show.
