New for the Spring Season 2018... Mary Poppins Jr.!


SMartS DEPT

1) WHO CAN PLAY WITH US?

  • 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)

  • The SoundWaves Big Band will perform a prelude before the show.

  • Select band members will perform music to accompany the show.

  • Stage Choir (Grades 4-5 who are also smSingers)

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

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

2) HOW DO I SIGN UP?

  • CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP

  • Dues: $35. 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 take 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.

3) WHO GOES TO CASTING AUDITIONS on February 14th?

  • Actors only!

  • If you want a part, show us what you've got and help us cast you in the best way.

  • Especially if you want a major part!

  • Click the following links for singing audition materials: Mary, Michael & Jane, Bert, George Banks, Bird Woman

  • What are we looking for?

  • The best ever in the history of the world? Not yet, but are you willing to shoot for the stars and work towards that long-term goal?

  • Did you prepare?

  • Are you direct-able?

  • Do you want to be part of a team, take part in team events, all while being your awesome and creative self!

  • Band?? / Choir?? No audition is necessary!

  • 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.

  • If you have not played in an ensemble with us before and would like to find out more information and tell us about yourself and your skills, please do so :)
