Backpack or bag with a couple of sharpened pencils and a spiral notebook. The paper is used for various activities.
Closable sealable water bottle each day as well.
All students should dress comfortably
NO Flip Flops or Strapless Sandals please. They are too hard to dance in and we don’t want any injuries.
The second week we will be doing a lot of prop making and crafting so please don’t wear your best clothes.
All parents are required to volunteer 3 hours. You will be assigned to help with either the move in or move out. Additional opportunities might become available, but these are the two things we need the most help with and you will be assigned to one of these.
If you are unable to volunteer we offer a buyout option for $30, please include this with your tuition.
The community performance sneak peek is on Friday, July 16th.
It is part of All About Musicpalooza and the Mokena Lions club Firecracker Weekend. The event is co-sponsored by the Mokena Lions and the Mokena VFW and we are collecting donations for the Manteno Veteran’s home.
Admission is $5 or a donation from the most needed list, which includes things such as fun size chocolate candy bars (no nuts) and Little Debbie snacks as well as combs and other toiletry items. There will also be performances by our other summer performance groups including our teen summer stock show, Footloose and our private lesson students.
There will also be fun fair games, food and community contests. Beer and wine will be for sale from the Mokena Lion’s.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for this event please let us know.
Costumes are provided but students may be asked to wear simple pieces to go with or under their costume such as white pants or a certain colored shirt. We will send an updated list after parts are assigned.
Each child will learn about the audition process and then audition for their part during the first two days of camp. We want this to be a positive experience for everyone and will allow kids to audition in pairs and small groups. HOWEVER if your child is trying for a part that sings a solo in the show then they will need to sing a solo at auditions. Auditions are held in front of the entire camp and everyone applauds at the conclusion of each audition.
Character descriptions and the audition lines will be emailed in June. We will explain and review these the first day of camp after we do some team building/getting to know you theatre games. We have also attached the sheet music they need to sing as part of their audition.
For listening purposes you can find most of songs by doing a search on YouTube. Simply enter the song title and “101 Dalmatians Kids.” The Kids part is important as the Broadway and movie versions are slightly different.
As part of camp the kids will be suggesting and voting on various “fun days.” Once they have decided which ones they would like to have we will email a schedule to the parents. “Fun days” often include themes such as pajama day, decades day (50’s, 60’s 70’s 80’s), crazy hair or hat day and so on.
