The Cadets January camp This Weekend

'South' North Pole in Woodstown for work on '12.25' show

As most pack away the decorations and work off the extra few pounds gained from cookies and egg nog, The Cadets will be some of the fortunate ones who are able to extend the meaning of the holidays into January as work continues on the 2012 production of ’12.25’ at next week’s camp.northpoleart

Woodstown H.S. in Woodstown, N.J. will once again be transformed into the southern outpost of the North Pole from Jan. 6–8, as the team creates the holiday spirit for members, staff and volunteers.

Corps Director George Hopkins was in holiday overdrive when he took over Santa’s seat for a few minutes on Christmas eve to give friends and fans some back ground information on the ’12.25’ show.  Click here to view a special “Santa edition” of a Hopcast.

As the corps comes together for the serious work of the January camp, attendance is anticipated to be very strong in both the brass and percussion sections.

Gino Cipriani, brass caption supervisor, said after the December camp that the brass section was in very good shape, with only a few spaces available for mellophones, specifically those who may have world class marching experience to round out the 80-member ensemble. If you’re interested in marching with The Cadets 2012 mellophone section, please contact Melissa Barlow in The Cadets office at 610-821-0345 ext. 115 or at

Stay tuned for more updates and developments on The Cadets 2012 program with some additional news and notes coming before next week’s camp as part of “The Cadets' 12 Days After Christmas” campaign. New items will be posted on The website and on The Cadets Facebook page.  Join us as we venture into the New Year with a program that is sure to excite and engage one’s imagination surrounding the holidays.
