TheatreWorks New Milford's Kids Program will begin Jan. 28 and end with performances in March.

The workshop, designed for students in grades 2 to 8, will include a 90-minute skills class once a week after school and rehearsals on Saturday mornings with instructor Beth Bonnabeau.

Ms. Bonnabeau has put together an original program, "Broadway Bedlam," a musical revue of Broadway classics.

Theatre enthusiasts who have wanted to play Jean Val Jean from "Les Miserables" but couldn't because of their gender, or who wanted to play Anita from "West Side Story" but couldn't because of hair and eye color, are encouraged to attend.

On the table is an all-male version of "Matchmaker" from "Fiddler on the Roof" and a female version of "Lucky Be A Lady" from "Guys & Dolls."

The cost is $350 per student.
