FALL SHOW INFORMATION FOR CAP JR!

UPDATE: Performances will very likely be at the Greenhouse in Robin Hills Farm. This is a fabulous location! There are many doors and windows that can be opened for air flow, plus it offers a roof over our heads in case of bad weather. Because this means our performance venue is basically indoors, all performers will be required to wear masks. And because we will be performing in masks, we will be rehearsing in them as well, even when we are rehearsing outside, so as to get used to projecting and making sure everyone can be heard. Looking forward to seeing you at auditions!

UPDATE!  We will be performing Oct. 23 and 24 at Robin Hills Farm.  The exact time is TBA, but they will both be in the afternoon.

REHEARSAL UPDATE: We have been given the following dates for rehearsals:

September: 20, 22, 27, 28; October 4, 5, 14, 15, 18, 20

We will also be rehearsing Oct. 21 and 22 at the performance venue.

We know that this may be difficult for some kids with other after-school activities going on since we cannot rehearse on the same days each week, but we are grateful that St. Mary is able to accommodate us at all.  We will try our best to work with each child's schedule so they can attend rehearsal.  We are still getting times confirmed, but it may be 3:30-5:30.  Our "tech week" (the week before the show) will possibly have extended rehearsal time (3:30-6 or 6:30).

 

We will be presenting the shows "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" and "The Thirty-three Little Pigs."

We have some information about auditions for the fall.

If we have a large enough group, the students will be divided into two groups by age, a younger and an older group. The younger group will consist mostly of 3rd-5th graders and will perform "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" and the older group will be mostly 6th-8th graders and will perform "The Thirty-three Little Pigs."  If we do not have a large group, we will perform only one play.  Auditions will be held Thursday, Sep. 16 and Friday, Sep. 17 from 4:30-8 pm.  A sign-up genius has been created for you to sign up any child who wants to audition.  We are separating the ages for auditions as well, so please make sure you pick the appropriate time slot.  Auditions will be done in pairs, even though 6 spaces are available for each time slot.  The audition scenes have been posted so students can look them over and become familiar with them.  Memorization is not expected.  We will have copies of all the scenes at auditions.  Students in the younger group may be asked to read either of the two roles (it doesn't matter that one is a "boy" part and one is  "girl").  The older students have two scenes and a monologue to look over.  They may be asked to read from any of them during the audition.

Rehearsals will begin the week of Sep. 20.  They will be held outside as much as possible.  The plays will be blocked to be physically distant as much as we can.  Masking will be necessary whenever we go inside.   The times will be earlier in the afternoon, probably 4-6pm.  Not everyone will need to come to every rehearsal.

 

As soon as we get more details confirmed, we will let you know.   In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact Alex Moore at mooreaec@icloud.com

 

BACKGROUND CHECK POLICY: Parents and guardians, please be advised that, like the Chelsea School District, we are now instituting a background check for all parent volunteers.  We will use iChat, the same resource the school district uses, for this service.  If your child is cast and you will be performing any volunteer job (which everyone must do unless you choose the opt-out fee), we will be asking you for information so that we can perform a background check.  This is in order to provide a safe environment for all students.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Following the lead of our government officials and the concern for people auditioning for The Only Man in Town, we may have to alter our plan for auditions. Please continue to check our social media for updates.
