Good afternoon! We are half way through our rehearsal process! The first half of the process of putting together a production is the hardest on the kids. It requires a lot of patience as we work through parts and everyone is learning their blocking and choreography. We want to encourage any students who are feeling frustrated to HANG IN THERE! We are almost to the really fun part! We will begin trying on costumes in the next two weeks in preparation for our show! Students will also begin rehearsing on stage with props and set pieces next week. Please practice with your children at home. If they have lines to memorize they really need to be “off book” by this week. Listening to their music in the car is a great way for them to memorize their songs. Please help your kids by playing their music as much as possible. If the students can come prepared for rehearsals, the practices will be so much more fun and rewarding. We want to remind you how important attendance is. We cover so much material each week. Please review the dates above and plan to be at every tech rehearsal and show. We cannot stress this enough. We want all of the kids to feel confident on stage. Thank you for everything you do for your kids. We are so fortunate to get to spend each week with them! We will also be posting tickets by the end of this week! Yay!
Tuition is due. Automatic payments will be charged on the 5th. Please be sure that your payment information is up to date.
Practice lines and music at home with your kids. This is easily done in the car running to and from activities. Students need to be off book by next week.
HANG IN THERE - we are almost to the really fun stuff! Hard work = an amazing reward!
Attendance is very important. Please plan ahead and clear your calendars for tech rehearsals and shows,
Aladdin Thursday Homeschool cast list
Hello! We are SO excited for this cast. It is certain to be a great time. We are double casting the roles of Aladdin and Jasmine so each double cast role will get two shows as that specific part but be in all four performances as ensemble on their off night. There are several (20+) parts that will be assigned during rehearsal process based on classroom conduct, willingness, and capabilities. This is a really big production and the ensemble is HUGE and such an important part of the show. There are so many chances for each student to shine on stage and we look forward to helping them do just that! Please take a moment to Order your Aladdin T-shirts HERE: Aladdin t-shirt order form
Orders will close October 1st, and students will have their shirts before Halloween!
