What to expect:  On the first day of classes the kids will spend some time getting to know each other, learn and sing through music, and take turns reading sides with their cast mates.   

  • Please bring a small snack and water bottle. There are no drinking fountains at the studio.
  • We recommend that the kids wear black jazz shoes. They will wear these for the performance and throughout the rehearsal process.  You can purchase them at Fancy Dancer , Academy, or Payless. 

Mandatory Parent Meeting:  The meeting will only be about 15-20 minutes.  We will answer a lot of questions that you may have and it can save you a lot of headache throughout the semester.  We look forward to seeing you there!  

Thursday 5-7:  January 18th at 6:45 p.m.

Homeschool Tuesdays:  January 16th at 12:00 p.m.

Homeschool Thursdays:  January 18th at 12:00 p.m.

Please don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions or concerns.  281-516-8382

Be prepared to sing "Just Can't Wait to be King."

You may select form one of the following sides below.  Please have your child try to memorize or at least familiarize themselves with one of the characters in the side.  They will read these with the director and other students in the cast.  

 

Note:  Do not be concerned about the audition process.  Students at this level will be coached through this process.  It is a low pressure audition to see what they are comfortable with.  No one will be forced to do anything that they are not comfortable with but will be encouraged to share what they can do.  If you have any questions, please call Nicole at 281-851-2952.

SIDE 1

SCAR

Sarabi!!!

(SARABI enters with head held high and walks the gauntlet of hostile HYENAS.)

Where is your hunting party? They re not doing their job.

SARABI

Scar, there is no food. The herds have moved on. We must leave Pride Rock.

SCAR

We re not going anywhere.

SARABI

If you were half the king Mufasa was-

SCAR

I am ten times the king Mufasa was!

SIDE 2

BANZAI

That lousy Mufasa. I won't be able to sit for a week!

SHENZI

If it weren't for those pushy lions, we'd be running the joint!

ED

Hee-hee-hee....

(SCAR emerges from the shadows.)

 

 

SCAR

Oh, surely we lions are not all that bad.

(The HYENAS gasp... until they recognize SCAR and heave sighs of relief.)

BANZAI

Oh, Scar. It's just you.

(The HYENAS laugh uncontrollably.)

SCAR

I'm surrounded by idiots. I practically gift-wrapped those cubs for you!

SHENZI

Well, ya know, it wasn't like they were exactly alone, Scar.

BANZAI

Yeah, what were we supposed to do, kill Mufasa?

SCAR

Precisely.
