The semester is based around a musical theatre production where students will get to work in a professional atmosphere with a production team, sound, lighting, microphones, set, costumes, props and more! The rehearsals are divided into Saturday mornings based around music, choreography and drama related to the show and afternoon stage rehearsals for blocking the show. All Saturdays are scheduled in advance so students know when they need to attend afternoon blocking/choreography/music rehearsals. For auditions, this year we are shaking things up and auditions are being held the first Saturday and Sunday of the program and all students will be participating in the process. Students are introduced to auditions through running group ‘sides’ (script work), learning a part of a song and dance number from the show and again performing in groups! And don’t worry about being shy, we’re all here to have fun so auditions will just be that, FUN! Juniors will participate in half day auditions on the first Saturday. Intermediates and Seniors will participate in a full day Saturday and a half day on Sunday on the first weekend. From this process students are cast in main roles and chorus for the show . All students will receive a show t-shirt and a recorded digital copy of the show.
