Have you ever wanted to be a part of a musical production? Well, here is your chance! In Musicals and Me, students in grades 4-8 will study the various aspects of acting, singing, and dancing. Students will go through auditions, be assigned roles, and work together to produce an entire musical in just two weeks. Every student in the course will have a role! Our final assignment: performing our musical, onstage, for friends and family. Join DC Everest musical directors Mr. Atkinson and Mrs. Vesper for this valuable learning experience.
This course is being offered through "Time to Shine," the DC Everest Summer Learning Experience. Dates are June 17-28, and this class takes the place of both morning sessions.

What: Summer Musical Theatre Experience
Theatre for the Young. Show-to be determined. Theatre for the young is musical written to entertain young audiences. The musical is more challenging than doing a Jr. Level show. The musicals are short, to keep the attention of the young audience..usually 45-60 minutes. Everyone who signs up for the class is automatically in the ensemble. We will hold auditions for the lead roles.
Where: Rehearsals will take place at the senior high school. Depending upon construction, there may be an occasional rehearsal at the middle school.
Dates: Auditions will take place mid-May. We will start rehearsing music after school a few times a week. The majority of the choreo and blocking will be learned June 10-25 (afternoons from 12:30-3:30 ). This course features two/three public performances: Wednesday evening, June 26th, Thursday afternoon, June 27th, and the potential for a third morning performance on Friday, June 28th.
Location: Senior High Choir Room and Auditorium
