TheatreWorks presents "The Night Shift before Christmas"



  • TheatreWorks Stage (Grades 6-8)

  • Actors, Ensemble, Choreo, Artistic Design, and Stage Crew, anyone who wants to learn about and be on the team.

  • swBand (Grades 4-8 who excel in lessons)

  • Band will perform music to accompany the show

  • Stage Choir (Grades 4-8 who are also smSingers)

  • Stage is the vocal companion to the band, making great ensemble sounds form the orchestra pit. Active members of The Saint Mary Singers are eligible for this role

  • Alumni, sign up, too, and be kept in the loop, possibly help as coach



  • Dues: $30. Please also participate in our fundraisers, ticket sales, etc.

  • Fine print: What if I don't signup now before the season starts?

  • My roster starts at 0, and you must sign up to get on it (doesn't matter if you have signed up for another show in the past). When the season starts, I the signup page offline and I export everyone's info into a chart and make it neat and useful.

  • If a student does not signup during the signup period they would be "flying under the radar" and would neither be considered for a part on stage or written one for the band, they would not get a t-shirt, email or other communications, and even if I remember to put their name in the program I would probably spell it wrong -- because this person would not have signed up to be on my roster.

  • Homework assignment #1: signup.

  • Band?? / Choir??

  • Most band members are also scheduled in private lessons, which are at once a weekly audition and coaching session. Students have every opportunity to show us they are interested and up for the challenge.

  • Likewise, stage choir members are studying and performing weekly or more with The Saint Mary Singers. They are ready to rehearse.

  • So, it is not necessary to audition
