Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is with great pleasure that I am announcing this year’s fifth grade music program: the musical 101 Dalmatians Kids. Please mark the performance dates Thursday, March 1st and Friday, March 2nd on your calendars. I am also excited to announce that both performances will be held in the Central High School auditorium and begin at 6:30 p.m. The performances will last for approximately 45-60 minutes.
All fifth grade students will be involved in the musical as chorus members; however, students will also have the option of auditioning for solo singing and speaking roles. Auditions for these parts will consist of speaking, singing, and acting and will be held from 4:15-6:30 p.m. on Monday, December 11th and Tuesday, December 12th. Students who choose to audition will be assigned a 15-minute audition time slot on one of these dates. All students will be introduced to audition materials during music class to ensure that each student has the opportunity to come to auditions prepared.
Parents are also invited to play an active role in this musical! If you are interested in assisting with set design, props, costuming, or any other aspect of musical theater production, please contact me as soon as possible. I am very excited to have this opportunity to work closely with not only the fifth grade students, but also with their families!
