How to Participate
REGISTER for the talent show. This involves filling out the Google form that collects registration info, a student agreement and a permission slip, selecting an audition time and sending us your music. Everyone needs to register including 5th Grade dancers and commercial and interstitial performers.
Attend the Audition Workshop. Choose which day is best for you. This will be so much fun! The afternoon will include vocal warm-ups, physical warm-ups, theatre games, and -- your chance to SHOW us your solo or group act you plan on performing in the talent show. Everyone who registers and attends the Audition Workshop will be able to participate. Acts do not have to be performance ready for the audition workshop. The concept and music must be decided.
REHEARSE. You will need to practice at home and attend all scheduled rehearsals on stage with the Director.
PERFORM on stage! Take a bow!
Solo Act: One performer in a 90 second act.
Group Act: Two or more performers performing together in a 90 second act. Audition: This is your chance to show us what you plan on doing for your Solo or Group Act in the talent show.
If you are dancing or singing, you will need to email your mp3 before auditions (by 12/3).
You do not have to have your act memorized for auditions.
The purpose of the audition is for the talent show team to get a feel for what your act is and start planning the best way to showcase your talent in the final show!
Rehearsals: This means practicing your solo or group act, as well as your entrance and exit, on the auditorium stage.
You will need to practice at home and also attend one scheduled rehearsal per week during February, plus tech/dress rehearsals and performances in March.
Solo and group acts will be assigned rehearsal dates starting February 1st.
Rehearsal assignments will be emailed out after the audition workshops.
Tech Rehearsal: These are the rehearsals in which we start setting the sound, lights, props, etc.
Dress Rehearsal: These are the rehearsals where we add in costumes and wardrobe. These rehearsals may also be recorded.
Performance Days: These are the days you get to perform on stage for the Stevenson Community.
