The whole-school musical production is a collaborative presentation featuring students from CAIS and DISC. Students are encouraged to be risk-takers and participate in auditions and production related ECAs. The audition process includes singing a short excerpt of a song and dramatic readings. The students chosen for main roles must be committed to rehearse consistently, memorize their lines, sing solo/small ensemble songs, and develop a sense of stage awareness. These combined elements help cast members develop a strong, relational bond. If selected, both students and parents are asked to sign a letter of commitment to the production.
Through these productions, students develop their musical abilities, dancing and acting skills, as well as, developing their Approaches To Learning(ATLs).
During the 2022-2023 academic year, the whole-school production was Shrek the Musical Jr. It was a wonderful experience for the cast and crew alike. We look forward to this year’s production, and hope that you will choose to participate.
