The Spring Musical is open to all students (7-12) interested in performing in a traditional stage production. Past productions include White Christmas, A Chorus Line, Into the Woods, Hello Dolly, and Beauty and the Beast. Students will try out in singing and dancing auditions to perform in the show. Any students interested in a principle role will also have a reading audition. These initial auditions are completed in large groups, and depending on their performance as evaluated by the director, music director, and choreographer, will be offered a callback audition. All students interested will be able to perform in the show. Rehearsals take place after school and on select Saturdays. Students will learn a variety of choreography to accompany the musical score of the show, blocking, stage directions, and a myriad of performing arts skills that can carry into music, dance, and drama outside of musical theater.
