Join our Brite Stars Cast (Ages 8 and up) as we tell the story of The Jungle Book!
With current state of COVID-19 and social-distancing – we will do all we can to make this a live on-stage experience. We have just come off a very successful season with Moana Jr, and were able to bring the show to the stage! Our first live show in over a year!
The cast rehearses are every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday through production in late June/July. Monday rehearsals will be scheduled with small groups for scene study. Tuesdays will be full cast rehearsals,. Thursday’s will also be small groups and scene study as needed. A commitment for all days is needed if you wish to audition for a feature role. If you just want to be in the ensemble – then Tuesday’s will be the commitment day. Given where we are today with the state of COVID-19, things will be very fluid with regards to show dates. We will combine Zoom rehearsals with live rehearsals in the event we are unable to meet in person. Smaller groups will meet on Zoom and Live. We will keep the rehearsals fluid with specifics to be given one week before as we move through the season.
Monday, April 19, 2021 is first rehearsal/audition and parent meeting. For more info – click one of the enroll buttons below!
Once auditions have begun, there will be no refunds.
