Course Description: Do you enjoy acting, singing, and performing? The High School Musical Theatre class is a performance-based course in which students will spend the year preparing to produce a full-length Broadway musical (TBD) while focusing on honing performance skills and growing as actors. We will rehearse on Fridays from 11:00-3:00 at Northwood Baptist Church. Auditions will be required and will take place in August prior to the start of the semester. Each student will present a monologue and a song from a musical. Students will use accompaniment for their song.
Rehearsal time is valuable. Because it is our aim to produce a show of the highest caliber, the class will require commitment and participation from students and parents. Please plan to be at every rehearsal, as every actor plays an important part in creating the whole show. Students and parents will be asked to sign a commitment form and join the official Facebook group for the class. There will be extra Saturday rehearsals throughout the year. Performances will be in May 2025.
You MUST get special permission to register for musical theatre classes! Please email Jenny Stauffer at firstname.lastname@example.org for interest and questions. Registration information will be sent privately to those who get a slot. Don’t wait…these classes fill up quickly!
There are now similar local programs available, and we need to emphasize the commitment level required for SHEEP’s year-long performance-based theatre group. Students and parents - whether elementary, junior, intermediate or high school - need to recognize and understand the requirement to refrain from committing to another non-SHEEP full-year performance-based theatre group. This keeps us all from scheduling conflicts in the spring, allows more students to participate in local homeschool theatre groups, and reflects our overall desire to have excellent theatre productions. We encourage each family to pray about participation and follow God’s leading in making this decision. Thank you for understanding. We are happy to answer any questions (email@example.com).
