Junior Musical Theatre meet every Sunday at ITW Studios Clonskeagh from 10-11.30am to rehearse for a full musical production of ANNIE Jr which will be staged the week of May 8th-14th 2016 at Smock Alley Boys School Theatre. Previous years include Aladdin, Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. You can see photos from some of our previous productions via the PHOTOS tab at the top of this page and on the left of this page too!
This is our performing group and is open to boys and girls from 8yrs to 14yrs who do a minimum of Dance and Drama at ITW. In our rehearsals we utilise the skills that the children have been learning in their drama, dance and singing and speech classes to create the performances for the show. Each week we rehearse the songs, scenes, dances and staging for our show and to this end we have a Director, Choreographer and Singing coach at rehearsals most weeks so everyone is kept very busy!
A very high level of commitment is expected of the students in this class and absences will not be tolerated. If rehearsals are missed for whatever reason the child will not be allowed to perform on stage in Smock Alley.
Auditions will be over a 3 week period starting on Sunday September 27th and are fun and interactive with those successful in completing the audition process being allocated a role within the show. We do our best to ensure as many as possible are included in the production and the students really thrive in this atmosphere surrounded by others with the same enthusiasm and passion as their own!
Although the majority of the rehearsals are on Sunday mornings there will be additional rehearsals on certain Sunday afternoons during March and April and everyone must attend for the full May Bank Holiday weekend 30th April and 1st & 2nd of May which is the week before the show! Notification of any extra Sunday rehearsals will be given well in advance. In being strict on attendance we manage to achieve fantastic results without endless ‘make up‘ rehearsals leading up to the show.
We are really excited at the lovely list of boys and girls who have already signed up but would welcome some more! If you are interested in getting involved please add Junior Musical Theatre to your class selection on your profile or drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add you in!
Fees for Musical Theatre are €150 per term and cover the rehearsals on Sundays the 3 days of the May Bank Holiday weekend and extra Sunday afternoons too!
Be a part of our fantastic Junior Musical Theatre Production this year. We have a couple of shows in mind and we are looking forward to getting started!
