Alanna’s Theatre and Dance Studio run a Musical Theatre School Holiday program each school holidays.
We have previously presented our own adaptations of shows such as Aladdin, The Lion King, Matilda, Willy Wonka Junior, The Little Mermaid and Friends, ‘Into the Unknown’ – Inspired by Frozen, A Harry Potter Musical and most recently Alice in Wonderland.
It is a jam packed week full of theatre games, vocal warm-ups, learning choreography, team building activities, creating and designing costumes, props, sets, rehearsals and making new friends.
It is a condition of registration that the children have to be available for all 5 x days of the program to be able to perform in the show on Friday!
The children are divided into groups (preps/grade 1 ensemble), (ensemble), (minor leads) (major leads) and a teacher is allocated to each group plus the director to ensure the children are well supervised and well supported.
Please note: Major Lead roles are generally given to older students who are able to read confidently, act and sing solo with confidence and manage their time to be able to learn a larger volume in a short amount of time. Children will have the opportunity to auditon via video submission. An email with audtion information will be sent after enrolment.
This will assist the creative team with finding the right fit for the roles prior to the program starting and once the show has been cast, a rehearsal script will be issued so children can start to work on their lines!
The children work in their allocated group and also with the entire group throughout the week.
Our final performance is a ‘workshop performance’ so while we try and get things as polished as we can, scripts are allowed on the stage as it is a work in progress. We are always so impressed with what the children are capable of achieving in such a short amount of time.
If your child has a passion for singing, dancing and acting then this is definitely the school holiday program for them.
