Kids Musical Theatre (Thursday) Experience: None Needed Rehearsals: 1st-5th Graders: Performers will rehearse every Thursday from 4-6 pm & every Sunday 1:30-3:30 pm. Auditions & Casting: Each performer who enrolls will perform in TWO casts. One cast will be their main show (role with lines, a solo, duet, or feature) and an ensemble show (smaller role, dancing, and singing in group numbers). Some performers will be cast in age-appropriate featured roles that they will perform twice. Performance Weekend(s) and Casting All performances will take place during the first three weekends of December. Your performer will perform in a minimum of two performances. (Performance days include Thursday through Sunday of each week). Outside of religious and school activities, we can not accommodate any other special requests with show days. This will allow our directors and casting team more flexibility to cast each kid exactly where they want them to be. Program Duration: 4 months What Happens In Rehearsals? Kids will work in an interactive and creative environment where they will be taught singing, dancing, acting, and choreography specific to the musical being rehearsed. Who Teaches The Kids? Our program is run by our Artistic Director, Jessica Alexander, (MFA Acting, New School University), and supported by a number of directors and choreographers who are skilled in various aspects of theatre and performance.
