JUNIOR MUSICAL THEATRE 5th to 10th Grade

This enchanting modern classic from Disney brings Elsa, Anna, and the magical land of Arendelle to life, onstage. The show features all of the memorable songs from the animated film.

It is our goal to have every student grow and learn within our program. Our program focuses on the process more than the product. We evaluate each student with their level in acting, singing and dancing and do our best to find a role that highlights their strengths and allows them to be challenged in their weaknesses. There are no small roles and each student is a vital part of our team. Ensemble work is essential to the growth of students as it pushes them to play multiple parts, have quick changes, learn big dance numbers and a lot of music. This is truly where they have the most fun! We do our best to do right by each student individually while meeting the needs of the whole class and of the script. We thank you in advance for trusting us through the process and for encouraging a love of theatre in your child.

NEW! JUNIOR INTENSIVE – By Audition Only!
for Grades 5 – 10 (min. 17 students required to open this session)

Faster pace, more intensive singing and dancing, performances opened to the general public, support ensemble for Jr1 & Jr2, performance excerpts at the Kids Musical, stagehand/tech experience at multiple performances.

Students will complete a questionnaire and state their top choice roles (major and minor). They will audition for those roles specifically, however we may decide they will be better suited elsewhere. A student may decide he/she wants to be in the Junior Intensive class regardless of which role is received, or if a student is not satisfied with the role they have been given, they may choose to join the Junior 1 or Junior 2 class instead. If a student is not accepted into the Junior Intensive class, he/she is urged to join the Junior 1 or Junior 2 class, where they will have another opportunity to be observed fresh, and receive a role that will fit their skill-set.

Auditions on Saturday, August 24 from 12:30pm
Email info@mcofm to request an audition appointment.
Excerpts and questionnaire will be available 2 weeks prior to the audition.

Requirements
1. Sing a song from a Disney movie or a Broadway musical. Song may not be from Frozen. Be sure to be expressive and act through the song. Please bring a karaoke track with no vocals (download from iTunes or YouTube) on a phone or tablet. Be prepared to sing for at least 1 minute – you may start the recording at any point to best highlight your range and skills (for example, you do not have to start at the beginning – you can sing from the second verse through the bridge or from the bridge to the end). Please note that in order to best use our time, we may cut you off at any point after 1 minute.
2. Read and act using Frozen excerpt for your chosen characters (major and minor).
