We need all cast members to be at Spring Avenue School by 12:00pm on that day. We will eat lunch as a cast, go over a few notes, and get ready for the show. You must bring a lunch with you. If you are coming from Hodgkins, Ideal, or Seventh Avenue there will be a bus to pick you up and take you over to Spring Ave. Make sure you bring your costume and anything you will need for the performance with you. The bus will start picking students up at 11:35 am. (Hodgkins, Ideal, and Seventh) After the performance, you will join your 5th or 6th grade class who came to watch the matinee and ride the bus back to your school with them. Students are responsible to make up any school work they miss while they are gone.

Shrek Jr!
This year's musical (2016-17) will be Shrek Jr! We are looking forward to all the great talent that will be coming out for auditions. Once we receive the materials, we will begin the process of creating the audition packet. Once audition dates have been chosen, we will announce them here and at the schools!

How auditions will be run
1. Students will check in with parent volunteers.
2. Then students will give their completed audition form to Mrs. Kay or Ms. Quinn. If a student needs to leave early (before 5:30pm), they must let Mrs. Kay and Ms.Quinn know so that we make sure you are one of the first groups of students to sing. If a student needs to come late because of other activities, they should make sure to hand Mrs. Kay or Ms. Quinn their audition form as soon as they get into the audition room.
3. We will then go song by song through the audition packet. Make sure you act and move while you are singing.
A. Everyone will sing the song together with a recording with singers voices on it.
B. Everyone will sing the song together with a recording without singers voices on it (accompaniment only)
C. Individuals will sing the song alone with the accompaniment recording

YOU WILL BE RELEASED AS SOON AS YOU HAVE SUNG ALL THE SONGS YOU WANTED TO SHOW US. So, you might be done before 5:30pm and can leave as soon as you are done.

If we need to see/hear anyone for Call Backs on Friday, we will post names on the District Musical Website and post a notice at each school with the person with whom you checked out your CD. If you don't get called back, you still may be in the show. If you are called back you may be asked to sing again and you may be given sections of the script to read and act out with other students.
The Full Cast will be announced at each school (with the musical contact person) and on the district website following Call Backs on Friday.
Be notified when this website is updated.
