HOW DO AUDITIONS WORK?
Once you register above, you will receive an email with the audition materials attached. You will pick one song to sing for our directors. We will hold in-person auditions on Thursday, August 24th between 3-5 pm in the Chime Auditorium (a specific time slot will be assigned to each performer) and video auditions will be accepted for any performer who is unable to attend the in-person audition. All auditions will be due by August 24th at 6 pm.
WHAT HAPPENS IN REHEARSALS?
Kids will work in an interactive and creative environment where they will be taught singing, dancing, acting, and choreography specific to Mary Poppins.
WHO TEACHES THE KIDS?
Our program is run by our Artistic Director, Jessica Alexander, (MFA Acting, New School University), with support from a number of Co-directors, choreographers, and theatre enrichment teachers who are skilled in various aspects of theatre and performing arts.
SAFETY AND MORE:
Safety is a main priority within the Class Act program. Class Act adheres to a detailed code of conduct that will be shared with all participants. It is important to us that all participants feel safe during rehearsals and performances.
Tuition includes weekly rehearsals, dress and tech rehearsals, costumes, and a set.
MORE ABOUT CLASS ACT:
Class Act is a year-round theatrical program and non-profit theatre with ties to the San Fernando Valley since 1985. Our core musical theatre program is run out of Woodland Hills, where we produce three children's musicals every year. Our philosophy behind children's theatre is for everyone to have fun, feel included, and have their moment in the spotlight.
We encourage personal growth through creative expression and theatre while working with a team to accomplish the larger goal of performing a show together.
We embrace a double casting system in our regular program, as we feel it allows all young performers the chance to grow and experience theatre in a positive light. Each student who auditions for one of our shows will be cast in an age-appropriate main night role and a secondary ensemble role. We cast based on the audition, not based on the number of shows you have completed. Pending enrollment, we will also include a double-casting system at Bay Laurel.
Class Act’s mission is to positively impact the lives of its students and families, by encouraging personal growth through creative expression and theatre.
Our programs offer the fundamental backbone to excel on a personal and professional level. We cater to the needs of every student who enters our door.
OUR CORE VALUES:
Excel Creatively, Work as a Team, Impact the Community, and Always Have Fun
