Spring 2019 Performance Session: Alice in Wonderland, Jr.

Alice in Wonderland, Jr. will be directed by TAP Instructor, Miss Katie Clarke, and Assistant Directed by TAP Instructor, Miss. Madyson Figlo.  Rehearsals will be held Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 4:30pm-6:30pm, and will run for 12 weeks, February 26th-May 15th, with performances at Burning Coal Theater in downtown Raleigh May 16th-19th.  Performances will take place Thursday May 16th at 7pm, Friday May 17th at 7pm, Saturday May 18th at 7pm, and Sunday May 19th at 2pm.  The first rehearsal on February 26th will be a team-building rehearsal for the cast to spend time getting to know each other through games and fun activities.  Children will audition during rehearsal on February 28th and March 5th, and will then spend the following weeks rehearsing for the production. Spring Break is from April 18th-28th , so there will be no rehearsals during that time.  The last rehearsal before Spring Break is Tuesday, April 16th, and the first rehearsal after Spring Break will be on Tuesday, April 30th.

Each rehearsal will begin with a 30-minute acting class that focuses on teaching acting skills that the children will use not only in the show, but in future productions as well.  The following 90 minutes will be spent rehearsing the show.  During the final two weeks of rehearsal, the children will be required to attend rehearsals each weekday, Monday-Thursday.  This includes the week of May 6th and the week of May 13, Tech Week.  Note that these rehearsals will take place from 4:30-7:30pm (one extra hour), and are necessary to put the show together with tech.  Attendance is mandatory for these two weeks of rehearsals for all children so that the technical elements can be incorporated into the production.  Performances will occur Thursday May 16th, Friday May 17th, Saturday May 18th, and Sunday 19th. 

Tuesday and Thursday rehearsals will take place at TAP Studios.  Tech Week rehearsals and the performances will take place at Burning Coal Theater's Murphey School Auditorium in downtown Raleigh.  Throughout the rehearsal process, children may miss no more than two rehearsals, with the exception of illness.  No rehearsals may be missed during the final two weeks when we rehearse Mondays-Thursdays from 4:30-7:30pm, beginning May 6th.  If your child will need to miss more than two rehearsals, please do not register for the session.  

Specific information regarding auditions, what to bring and wear to rehearsals, performance tickets, etc. will be communicated to the cast via email once children have registered and enrolled in the session.  At auditions, children will learn music to sing, do several "cold readings" which means that they will be given scenes and monologues from the show to read "on the spot" (with time to prepare), and will do some movement auditions.  They do NOT need to prepare anything for auditions.  We do recommend, however, that they watch the Disney movie in order to familiarize themselves with the story!  All children enrolled in the session WILL be cast in the show.

Registration Fee

Because we anticipate Alice in Wonderland, Jr. filling very quickly, we ask that you pay the first month's payment of $150 (or the full payment of $450 if you would prefer) upon registration in order to hold your child's spot (see how to register below).  The rest of the $450 session fee ($300) is due January 26th.  If you register and realize that your child will be unable to attend the session, please note that you will not receive the $150 registration fee back, as this is required upon registration to hold their spot.  The remaining payment of $300 is due by January 26th.   If you cancel after January 26th, you will be required to forfeit the full amount of $450.   If you do not pay the full amount of $450 by January 26th, your child will lose their spot in the session, as well as the $150 registration fee.  Please contact us with any questions regarding registration fees.
