Spelling Bee [Hybrid Live] - Kids Musical Theatre (Monday or Thursday) Hybrid Live Group Experience: None Needed Rehearsals: 2nd-8th Graders: Performers will be assigned a regular Monday or Thursday Zoom slot (4pm slot) or (5:30pm slot) & a Sunday Live Slot (10am slot), (12pm slot), (2pm slot), or (4pm slot). Auditions & Casting: While we normally have a double casting system, this musical only has LEAD roles, so each kid will be cast in a LEAD role in the show. Program Duration: 4 months What Happens In Rehearsals? Hybrid Live Musical Theatre: We have adapted our kids theatre program to a half virtual/Live platform. All weekday rehearsals will be held via zoom for 90 minutes and weekend rehearsals will be held in person (with social distancing, masks, etc) for 90 minutes on the weekend. The cast(s) will rehearse dialogue, music, and choreography from the safety of their home during the week and in person in our parking lot during the weekend. The kids will be engaging with our highly trained staff to prepare for a pre-recorded performance for friends and family to watch! Who Teaches The Kids? Our program is ran by Class Act's program director, Ally Mulholland (BFA from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy), and supported by a number of assistant directors who are skilled at various aspects of theatre and child development. Safety and More: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have adapted our entire program to fit the safety needs of the community. Our board of directors has approved our use of in person rehearsals and each family and will need to sign our Covid waiver & abide by the strict rules we will put in place for LIVE rehearsals.
