The Christmas Programs are right around the corner! The 2nd and 3rd grades’ program this year will be The Littlest Elf, and the 4th and 5th grade’ program will be Fa La La La La.com! The programs will take place on Monday, December 18th. Kindergarten and 1st grades will perform at 5:45 p.m., 2nd and 3rd grades at 6:45 p.m., and 4th and 5th grade at 7:30 p.m. All Programs are scheduled to take place in the new Geneseo High School Concert Hall.
Along with the program’s music, both Fa la la la la.com and The Littlest Elf require a cast of about 15 characters. If your child is interested in playing one of these roles, they may audition on Friday 11/10, Monday 11/13, and Tuesday 11/14. Students should sign up for an audition time outside the Northside Music Room. I may have time to listen to additional students, but priority will be for those who have signed up in advance.
Auditions for 2nd-5th graders will occur from 7:45-8:15 a.m. on Tuesday and also for 4th and 5th graders during lunch/recess time Friday, Monday, and Tuesday, in the Northside music room. Encourage your child to speak slowly, clearly, and with expression at the audition. If your child eats breakfast at school on Tuesday, they should eat breakfast before coming to the audition.
Students should bring the Audition Form to the audition filled out with their first and last name with the characters for which they are auditioning listed. Please also fill out and sign the Video Permission section so that I may video-record the audition for later reference when making final casting decisions. Students should memorize one of the three lines printed on the audition form. I have extra forms available in the music room, and I have attached it and the scripts for each program at the bottom of this note.
Regardless of the outcome of these auditions, ALL students will also have the opportunity to participate in an extra instrument ensemble, which will perform at the Christmas Program as well. In addition, there will be several solo and small group singing opportunities.
Please contact me if you have questions. Thank you for your help in advance!
