Chorus Information:

This year Chorus will be open to students in grades 3-8. Chorus will continue to sing for Masses, Sacraments and perform for Dinner Theatre.

We will rehearse once a week: some students on Tuesday’s from 3:00-4:15 and some students on Thursday’s from 3:00-4:15.

How to determine which day for your child to come… please read carefully…

 For the first two weeks of Chorus: September 17, 19 & September 24, 26 we will prepare for our Opening Liturgy and I will show a video of the Broadway Stage Production of Act I of Into the Woods. Your children may come to either Sept 17 and 24 OR Sept 19 and 26. They do not need to come both Tuesday and Thursday.

This year for Dinner Theatre we will be doing the musical Into the Woods, jr. The junior version of the show is only Act I and does not include the “after happily ever after” when things go awry. Due to the large number of students in Chorus, we plan to have two casts for the show. The white cast will perform March 21st and 22nd. The gold cast will perform March 28th and 29th.

The white cast will have Chorus practice on Tuesdays. The gold cast will have Chorus practice on Thursdays. Once the show is cast, we will begin rehearsing the show along with our other music during Chorus so that the only rehearsals on weekends in March will be: March 7,8,14,15.

I will hold auditions during Chorus October 1 and 3 for any students who would like to be considered for a featured role. For this audition, they should plan to sing 16-32 measures of a song they feel shows their voice well. They should bring sheet music. If your child decides they are not interested in a featured role, they will be in the ensemble of the show and they do not need to attend Chorus that week.
