Here is our April-May Newsletter thanks to Jacqueline Hyman and Sami Wright.
FOOTLOOSE this Summer!
We would like people to know that we are already off to a great start on our summer show of FOOTLOOSE. 25 students from Blake and other schools auditioned in April. The second round of Auditions will be held May 17 and 18 and we urge everyone to spend a worthwhile summer of musical theatre with us!
For Blake students, there are sign-ups on the call board. For other students, call me (Mr. Michael D’Anna) for a time. Remember — a one-minute monologue and an upbeat song from a musical. See here on the blakestagecompany.com (website) for additional information.
There are a multitude of roles in this show as well as many, many fabulous dance numbers, and a fabled story that’s about different perspectives of life from divergent parental and teen views.
I want to thank Kenn Hill and Eric Lewanda for keeping us up-to-date on the website and thru the e-mails. Terrific Support!
Middle School Institute
We will also be staging a middle school musical in July and would ask you to publicize it to friends, relatives and neighbors. Auditions are also in May (17 and 18).
Band and Dance Institutes
We will also be holding a Band Institute with Ms. Lader in the lead this summer, as well as our first Dance Institute from July 15 – 26. This is mainly for students in grades 6 thru 9.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream Thank You
