Seussical Kids

The Elementary Musical this year is “Seussical KIDS!”. This production is open to Kindergarten - 5th graders. Auditions will be VIRTUAL. Our current plan is to have outdoor performances March 5 - 7. All rehearsals will be run with COVID safety protocols in place.

Due to the ever changing restrictions and COVID related issues, the detailed rehearsal schedule will not be available until December 11 at the Parent Information Meeting. We do anticipate rehearsals being a hybrid of virtual and in-person.

Here is what you need to know:

  • Self-tapes are due NO LATER than Wednesday, December 9
  • Self-tapes need to be uploaded to www.wetransfer.com and sent to: nataliet@villagechristian.org through that website. Do not send your video directly through email. The video quality will be low. You can also send through Dropbox if you prefer.
  • You must fill out and email the AUDITION form to nataliet@villagechristian.org
  • Cast Lists will be posted on Friday, December 11
  • Mandatory Parent Info Meeting is on Friday, December 11 from 6 -7 PM via Zoom
  • We will send scripts home with each student during the week of December 14. If your student is online only, let us know and we will arrange a pick-up time.
  • Rehearsals will begin on January 5 and go through February 28 (a detailed rehearsal schedule will be available at the parent info meeting on Friday, December 11)
  • TECH WEEK will be March 1 - 4 (MANDATORY)
  • Performances will be March 5 - 7

Please prepare a Musical Theatre type song- 1-2 minutes long (a verse and a chorus). You will need a karaoke track to sing along to. Please make sure the recorded vocals are not on the track.

  • First Time in Forever from Frozen

  • When Will My Life Begin from Tangled

  • In Summer from Frozen

  • You’re Never Fully Dressed fromAnnie

  • Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid

  • How Far I’ll Go from Moana

  • Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid

  • I Won’t Grow Up from Peter Pan

For grades 2nd - 5th, please also prepare these lines from “Oh, the thinks you can think!” by Dr. Seuss:

You can think up some birds.
That’s what you can do.
You can think about yellow
Or think about blue....

Think left and think right
And think low and think high.
Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!

Self-tape INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Slate - At the beginning of your recording, say your name and what song you will be singing
  • Sing - sing your song with your karaoke track

  • Acting - deliver the short Dr. Seuss poem with your own twist and character choice
