Lead Cast - Fall 2018

LBMP's Fall 2018 session consists of 15 weeks of classes. This includes 11 weeks of classroom rehearsals, 4 weeks of rehearsals onstage, and one weekend of performances. Classes take place once a week after school. In these weekly classes, students will learn proper stage etiquette, gain confidence, sing, act, and dance while working toward a final performance. At the end of the 15 weeks, all students perform in a full length production complete with costumes and sets.

 

This spring’s production is…Mary Poppins Jr.!

View story synopsis here.

 

Fall classes for students ages 8-16 are referred to as "Lead Cast" classes. At this age, all students have individual speaking roles in the final performance. They also focus on singing and dancing and they perform in group numbers throughout the final production.

 

In order to provide the most performance opportunities for the most children, two different casts (named Musical Notes and Top Hats) rehearse at different times and perform in three separate shows each. The dates/times required of the different casts are indicated below. You may sign up for whichever cast you prefer.
