Beauty and the Beast audition information

Just to confirm what was said at the meeting for Year 7, 8 and 9 students this week. Auditions for "Beauty and the Beast" will take place in the first 2 weeks back in September. You will be asked to sing part of "Be Our Guest" alone and be part of a group dance audition. Following this we will have more detailed recalls.

We are looking for a cast of 40 students. Rehearsals will be primarily on Monday and Tuesday from 3.30 - 5.30. In January it will be almost every day as well as some Sunday rehearsals. Please make sure you are available before you audition.

Performances will be on 21st, 22nd and 24th January. We will be doing 2 shows on the Saturday.

Students in Year 10 - 13 from September will also be able to audition for our upper school play "Two". Again auditions will be in the first 2 weeks back. Rehearsals for "Two" will be mainly on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We are looking for a cast of 14 actors. You are more than welcome to audit…

Year 10: The Fast Approaching Coursework Deadline

Some reminders:

The deadline for your first round of coursework is Wednesday 16th July 2014, 3.25pm.

You will not be able to work on your compositions after school on the Wednesday.

You will need to hand in:

- A recording of your first performance
- The commentary document for your first performance (remember this blog post?)
- A recording of your first composition
- A score (of some kind) of your first composition

Sibelius: The current Sibelius situation is that it is working.
If it doesn't, and that is the reason you miss the deadline, you will not be penalised.

Lesson times remaining:

Weds 9th July P5
Fri 11th July Ps1&2
Weds 16th July P5 (you will be in Room 10)
