A big THANK YOU to all who have shown interest in being a part of our drama production! Your encouraging emails about this endeavor have been greatly appreciated.
Before we dive into auditions, I’d like to get to know our students by conducting a workshop which will help them prepare script readings and become familiar with the score and choreography of the show. I have attached a schedule for this workshop along with some other important dates. Additionally, I’ve included an audition rubric and side scripts that will be used the days of auditions. As with any club, students must have permission to stay afterschool, so please complete the Club Permission Form and return by November 23rd. I will have a “drama box” in the office, so students can drop off the form before school begins.
Many of you have asked about days and times of rehearsals. I want to try to accommodate as many students as possible who want to be a part of the production. Rehearsals will consist of 2-3 days a week; I’d like to wait and see who all is involved before I determine whether mornings or afternoons are best.
After auditions, all students who are a part of the production (including cast, crew, and creative teams), will be a part of the JTMoore Drama Club. A $35 club fee will be collected at this time. This helps to pay for the performance rights of Disney’s The Lion King Jr. Other costs will include a club t-shirt ($15) and costume fee donations which will be collected in January 2016. I try my best to keep the costs at a minimum for students, and through a team effort of fundraising and bringing creatives together to share talents, this can be done.
Lastly, there will be an opportunity for K-4 students to audition in late January/early February!
