Summer Music Theater is a continuation of the Whitmore Lake Middle School Drama program that began in 2007 with students that wanted more theater in their lives! The WLMS Drama Club has been going strong for the last 9 years and has performed numerous plays and musicals. In order to include more students from in and around Whitmore Lake, Summer Music Theater was created; enhancing the theater experience for all students while enabling students with the same interests to build friendships and leadership skill sets. Summer Music Theater prides itself on the fact that, by show time, the show is completely run by the students working together! Summer Music Theater holds auditions in May and chooses productions where all students are able to participate whether it is as a soloist, chorus member, or back stage crew member. All students that register will be able to participate in their preference of onstage or backstage! Auditions: Sunday May 1st 1:00-5:00 We will hold music rehearsals for onstage participants from 2 - 4 PM on May 15 and 22, and June 5. Rehearsals for both onstage and backstage participants will be held on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 9 AM to 1 PM starting on June 20, 2016 and going through July 13, 2016. We will have one Thursday rehearsal on July 7 due to the holiday earlier in that week. Production week will include rehearsals on Tuesday - Friday, July 12-17, 2016 also from 9 AM to 1 PM. Performances will be on Friday, July 15 at 7 PM, Saturday, July 16 at 7 PM, and Sunday, July 17 at 2 PM. The Sunday show is followed by set strike and the cast party. All rehearsals and performances are held at Whitmore Lake High School located at 7430 Whitmore Lake Road, Whitmore Lake, MI 48189. *You must register by May 1 to be eligible for an audition.
