Main Stage Performance Company: (Grades 5-9) Wednesday 4-5:30PM
The Main Stage Performance Company offers children from grades 5-9 with some theatre experience the opportunity to perform in a full scale Broadway Musical! The Directors and students spend the first three weeks of rehearsals learning about the musical, its characters and music to prepare for auditions. Students have the opportunity to review the script and decide what role(s) they wish to pursue. Auditions and callbacks are held after 3-4 weeks of rehearsals, and everyone is cast in a role. Rehearsals include instruction in Singing, Acting and Dance in preparation for performance.
