Anything Goes!

Hey Folks!

We (Gina and I,) are working as quickly as possible to get the Middle School production of “Anything Goes,” up and running. Today I met with a great group of 4th-8th graders to help them get familiar with some of the tunes. If you couldn’t attend today, do not fear. I will have another session Friday at recess and Friday after school until 4 (there is no late bus so plan accordingly.)

Auditions will be Monday March 21 and Tuesday March 22 after school. I don’t have an end time yet. More to come.

Middle School Musical FAQ-

  1. Can 4th graders be in the production?
    Yes! When making this decision to be involved please know that the time commitment is much more extensive than for the K-4 play, and these students are asked to really up their maturity and responsibility levels!
  2. What if I have some after school commitments?
    Join us! We have folks who take dance classes, play a sport a few times a week, have mentoring, and more. With this in mind, if you are available for less time to rehearse, it may mean that you are on stage less, but we’d really love to have you! When we get into the final weeks before the play students and families are asked to prioritize rehearsals and miss their other activities.
  3. Is it possible to be in the play but not sing on stage?
    Yes! The beauty of a show like “Anything Goes!” is that there’s room for all types on involvement. Join us!
  4. What about lights/sound/crew?
    More info to come… but… Join us!
  5. How do I prepare for auditions?
    It’s all about the YouTube. Here are the songs you should listen to:
    Girls: Blow Gabriel Blow, All Through the Night, I Get a Kick Out of You
    Boys: Be Like the Blue Bird, All Through the Night, Friendship

Hey Wind Ensemble Members-

PLEASE listen to the three pieces for the festival. This music is HARD. Learning these tunes in a short amount of time will be SOOOO much easier if you listen. Listen with your music in front of you and follow your part.
