ARISTOCATS KIDS (Grades 3-6) MONDAYS & WEDNESDAYS
Time commitment: March 18 - May 18
Everybody wants to be a cat in Disney's stage adaptation of the animated classic motion picture. Based on the beloved Disney animated film, and featuring a jazzy, upbeat score, Disney’s The Aristocats KIDS is a non-stop thrill ride of feline fun, complete with unbelievable twists and turns.
In the heart of Paris, a kind and eccentric millionairess wills her entire estate to Duchess, her high-society cat, and her three little kittens. Laughs and adventure ensue as the greedy, bumbling butler pulls off the ultimate catnap caper. Now it's up to the rough-and-tumble alley cat, Thomas O'Malley, and his band of swingin' jazz cats to save the day.

ATTENDANCE POLICY:Because of the collaborative nature of production, absences are highly discouraged. Remember, absences affect everyone because theater is a “team sport!” Please inform HITS of all currently known scheduling conflicts before the start of the first class or rehearsal. If there are several rehearsal conflicts, the result may impact the student's casting and/or full participation in the production. In the case of emergencies or last-minute illnesses, please contact the HITS at 713-861-7408 or email HITS Customer Service. The creative teams and /or the Producing Artistic Director may at their discretion reassign the role/s of any student who accrues more than two (2) unexcused absences or late arrivals to support the integrity of the production and the preparation process of the entire cast. Attendance during technical/dress rehearsals and performances is mandatory.
ATTIRE:Comfortable clothing that allows movement and closed-toed shoes with rubber soles. Jazz shoes are recommended.
AUDITIONS/PLACEMENTS:Auditions will occur during the first 2 rehearsals. All students will read lines from the script and learn a short vocal & dance combination to assess skill levels. Students are not expected to prepare anything in advance for auditions, but some have found taking private voice and acting lessons helpful to boost confidence on audition days.
HITS Theatre performance classes allow students to develop their acting, singing, and dancing skills through a traditional rehearsal process. Each production is supported by a professional director, choreographer, music director, stage manager, and designers. As an ensemble, the students each play an important role in telling the story for a live audience by learning music, choreography, and staging. Our creative team guides the students through character development, proper vocal technique while strengthening motor skills, coordination, and social-emotional learning.
