Dear Parents and Guardians:
It is with great pleasure that I am announcing this year’s fifth grade music program: the musical Annie Kids. In order to accommodate families and work with our limited space, we will be holding two performances. Please mark the performance dates Thursday, March 17th and Friday, March 18th on your calendars. Both performances will begin at 6:30 p.m. and 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 Thursday, December 17th and Friday, December 18th. 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 music rehearsals, choreography, set design, props, costuming, lighting, or any other aspect of musical theater production, please contact me as soon as possible. It would also be extremely helpful if a few parents would be willing to help clean up and organize props following the final performance. I am very excited to have this opportunity to work closely with not only the fifth grade students, but also with their families!
