All State Musical Number - Closing Ceremony - NEW
Troupe Directors - In recognition and celebration of the hard work and dedication of all thespians (students and teachers) attending Festival 2015 we are planning an All-State Musical Theatre piece to be presented during our closing ceremonies on Saturday evening and this is where you come in. Please recommend two of your best student performers with different vocal ranges to be selected for the All State Closing number. We are looking for your best Soprano, Alto,Tenor, or Bass voices as well as the ability to move to basic choreography. Of course, if you have a triple threat that will be great too! However, we are only able to select one of your students to participate as we need an even a number of vocal ranges as possible. Once selected, students will receive a link to the music and basic choreography for the number to have prepared prior to festival. Students participating in the closing number will be required to take two workshops at festival specifically geared toward preparation for their performance on Saturday evening. Costumes for the closing number are still being discussed and we will provide more information in the coming weeks. Please go to the Forms tab to complete your recommendation
