New for the Spring Season 2018... Mary Poppins Jr.!
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?
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?
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!
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 :)
