Musical Audition Time

Each year up to 120 students from across the St. James-Assiniboia School Division are selected to make up two casts for a selected musical production (Grades 4-8).  By teacher invitation, students are chosen to audition for next year's production, 'Disney's Lion King Jr.'.  The show will run Jan. 30 - Feb. 16, 2016.  This year's producer, director and choreographer is Mrs. Paula Olko.

Guidelines consist of the quality of audition (strong singer, dancer, actor, excellent behaviour), the character needs of the musical, and parental commitment to take student to one weekly rehearsal on Mondays or Tuesday (this is VERY important and students must make up missed practices by attending the alternate cast's day).  Rehearsals will start in September.

Audition dates @ Westwood Collegiate in the cafeteria.

Grades 3 & 4 - May 7 or May 8  4:20-7:00 pm
Grades 4 & 5 - May 4 or May 5  4:20-7:00 pm
Grades 6 & 7 - Apr. 30 or May 1 4:20-7:00 pm

* Reminder to parents who children are auditioning that you are responsible to practice the following with them:
- Choose a character / memorize part (see the sheet in package for character suggestion)
- Learn song that matches the character (see song links in letter that went home)
- Practice marching in time and box step
- Fill out the application and bring it to the audition (in package)
- Sign up for an audition time on line (see link in letter that went home)

Congratulations to the students invited from Stevenson to audition.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.  Email Ms. Rempel
