And proudly introducing our 2019 Production…
In a fairy-tale kingdom obsessed with pop culture and social media, fairy godmothers are lawyers and the Three Little Pig-arazzi chase celebrities. But when Cinderella leaves her self-absorbed prince and winds up in jail with an unlikely girl squad, she doesn’t just cause a sensation–she starts a revolution. A warm-hearted comedy full of clever characters.
This show focuses on acting so the rehearsal process will be geared towards enhancing skills like: good stage presence, being able to engage with the audience as another character, vocal presence, and learning the importance of being depended on. And for all of you musical lovers, don’t fret! We are working with Fox Music Group to feature music from The Greatest Showman as well as a few other surprises up our sleeves.
WHO MAKES UP THE CAST?
Junior Ensemble Cast
The junior ensemble is the glue that holds us together. We begin with the basics by learning simple stagecraft like where to move on the stage and the different terminology for it. We also spend time engaging in ensemble building activities, simple improvisation work as well as choreographed stage movement and confidence-building activities.
Principal Supporting Cast
This group starts with more stagecraft work and ensemble building. We start learning character building techniques and vocal projection. Singing for the stage is also introduced and we work extensively on stage presence and confidence building.
With this advanced group we start off with script analysis and character building and introduce advanced improvisation games as well as working “through the moment”. We also work on vocal projection and singing for the stage. We hone the skills that they have learned throughout the years as well as introducing more advanced techniques in stage presence, script work, and characterisation.We also include three in-class showcases, which are independent of the main show that focuses on monologue work, singing, and acting while singing. Complex improvisation techniques will be introduced to teach “on the spot thinking” and to keep the performers on their toes.
