Unpack your adjectives. Zoom around the Solar System. Hop on a train at Conjunction Junction. It's Schoolhouse Rock, Jr. LIVE! We are so excited to offer our 1st-5thgraders the opportunity to participate in a Broadway-style musical production right here at our own school. Read on for more information for grown-ups. Parents: You may help your child fill out forms at the auditions, but children should plan to come directly to the music room after school. Be sure to have an extra snack packed so your child has energy to sing, dance and play. We prefer to audition the kids without parents present; you can return to pick her/him up after auditions at 6:00pm on Tuesday or Wednesday. Rehearsal schedule and conflicts: Rehearsals will generally be held on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 4:00-6:00. Not everyone will be called for every rehearsal; a rehearsal schedule will be handed out by January 9. Rehearsal obligations will increase as we near our performances. Rehearsals may be held EVERY DAY (Monday-Thursday) during tech week, March 5-8; and performances will be held at 7:30pm March 9, and 1pm & 3:30pm March 10. Please consider the schedule carefully and write down any conflicts that you know of during those times. We will try to be flexible and work around a limited number of conflicts if we know about them in advance. However, actors must be able to attend all tech rehearsals and performances.
Actors need only attend ONE audition session. Cast information will be available on the AKA website and posted on the bulletin board near the school office by Thursday, December 21. The audition form is available by clicking the link below. Please complete the form in advance as best as possible.
The first rehearsal will be a read-thru on Tuesday January 9 from 4:00-5:30; there will be a half-hour MANDATORY PARENT MEETING at 5:30pm following the read-thru. At this time, the completed participation form and participation contract should be turned in and all fees must be paid. The participation fee is $25. Scholarships are available. We will outline the schedule, sign up for volunteer positions and answer any questions.
