The African Savannah comes to life with Simba, Rafiki and an unforgettable cast of characters as they journey from Pride Rock to the jungle... and back again, in this inspiring, coming-of-age tale.
Special Note: Students in the third grade have the option to choose either the Grades K-3 or the Grades 3-5 options.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: HITS Theatre Productions are a chance for students to practice 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 a story for a live audience by learning music, choreography and staging. Our professional creative team guides our students through character development, proper vocal technique and strengthening motor skills & coordination.
AUDITIONS/PLACEMENTS: Casting 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 for auditions, but some have found taking private voice and acting lessons helpful to boost confidence on audition days. This semester, we are offering a one-hour audition preparation class during our parent orientation meeting. See specific class for exact date and time.
PREREQUISITE: All first-time HITS theater students must concurrently register for EXPLORING MUSICAL THEATER or MUSICAL THEATER JR. WORKSHOP or have completed these classes in the previous semester. All registrations are subject to approval or removal by the Artistic Director; prerequisites may be waived based on a skill assessment by HITS Artistic staff.
