August 21st – orientation meeting 12-2 (Theater games available for kids in the gym). Kids are welcome to participate in the theater games, sit with a parent or bring a quiet activity. This is your chance to come and check us out and see if this is a good fit for your family. Forms are available on our website and will also be available at the orientation and auditions. If you can print out the forms and have them filled out and ready, this will save time and make the meeting go smoothly. Nor worries if you can’t. Here is the website: http://reachhomeschool.weebly.com/
If you cannot attend orientation but are interested in joining in on the fun, just let us know. We can make it work.
Our play will be an adaptation of “The Princess Who Had No Name”. This is a fun adventure with many of our favorite fairytale characters. This is for all ages and as always, we will have a part for everyone. We will not be able to guarantee a speaking part for everyone, however. There are large, medium, small and non-speaking parts. Rehearsals are weekly on Thursdays from 12:00-2:30. (except where noted, please see schedule below). Large and some medium roles may have an additional rehearsal on Wednesdays morning or afternoon (one or the other, not both). Additional rehearsals will be scheduled and known in advance as much as possible. Not every large/medium actor role will be called every Wednesday. In additional to acting, there are other ways to be involved. We have opportunities for all kinds of behind the scenes involvement for any kids who want (including actors). This could be set building, props, costuming, music, lighting, etc.
Cost: $45 for actors and $22.50 for those only involved in tech.
Location: First United Methodist church in Troy. On Livernois near Square Lake. 6363 Livernois Rd Troy, MI
This is not a drop-off group. Parents are required to take on a job during rehearsals as well as during tech week. More information about parental involvement will be discussed at the orientation/information meeting.
