Calling all 5th Graders...take a trip with us to Never Never Land!
We are thrilled to announce Peter Pan as the 2019 Riverside School Play! Below you will find important information regarding your child's participation. If you still have questions or concerns after reading this email, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
Registration: Registration is open! If your 5th grader is interested in participating in Peter Pan, please be sure to sign up before Tuesday, November 20, 2018. The registration link will close on November 20th. This is a firm date. If you fail to register your childbefore that date, he or she will be unable to participate in this year’s show. You will receive a reminder with the registration link the day before registration opens.
Auditions: Auditions will be held on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 from 3:15pm-6:00pm. Auditions are mandatory for any 5th grader who would like a speaking role in the play. If your 5th grader would rather be part of Ensemble (singing and dancing in a large group only, no speaking role), he or she does not need to attend the audition. At the auditions, each 5th grader will be required to sing a song (a capella) of his or her choice. This song does not have to be a song from Peter Pan. Any song will do: “Happy Birthday” has been a popular choice in the past;) Students will also learn a short dance and perform a scene (or scenes) selected by our directors. Parents DO NOT attend the auditions.
Stagehands: Stagehands are limited to 5 and will be subject to a lottery should the registrations exceed that number. Please note that Stagehands will only be needed for 3 rehearsal days and all performances.
Cast List: The Cast List will be sent by email on or before December 1
Rehearsals: ALL REHEARSALS ARE MANDATORY. All rehearsals (except the Saturday rehearsal) will run from immediately after school (3:15pm) until approximately 6:45pm.
