CALLING ALL DOG CATCHERS, CRUELLAS, and PUPPIES!

Mrs. Post WANTS YOU to join the cast of Disney’s 101 Dalmatians July 15 - 19, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. NO auditions or previous experience needed. Besides all the cute little puppies, there are lots of parts for older students - both male and female (Cruella, dog catchers, narrators, mom and dad, and the lead puppies). This is a great musical with lots of fun music and a fun script. You can also invite all your friends to join the cast with you. Students do NOT need to attend ACA to participate. Many parents have asked if a younger sibling could participate. IF a student can handle a 5 hour long rehearsal (with a break for lunch)… then YES, students in grades 1 or 2 may join the cast.

So, what are you waiting for? To hold your spot in the musical, please call the school office THIS WEEK! There is a $20 registration fee due upon registration (one per family) with the balance due the first day of class. There is a minimum amount of cast needed to produce this musical, so if you or your friends are thinking about joining the cast…please do so THIS WEEK.

The registration form is attached below. If you need more information, you can call the school office or call Mrs. Post at (918-852-2040).

COSTUME HELP NEEDED

Mrs. Linda Geppelt, ACA’s costume curator, is asking for help with a costume project this Thursday, June 13, beginning at 9:00 a.m. in the Performing Arts Building. We have many costumes that need to be organized and labeled. Parents & high school students are welcome to volunteer and students will earn community service points for helping!

VOCAL EXPRESS CLASS “from page to stage”

From Mrs. Post: Attention all performing arts students going into 8th - 12th grades this fall! I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you consider enrolling in the Vocal Express class in the fall. Vocal Express is team taught by Mrs. Isgrigg and myself. It is a Tuesday/Thursday class, so it meets in two parts. During the first part of the class, Mrs. Isgrigg will focus on the rudiments of music: how to read music, sight-reading, time signatures, etc. During the second part, I teach and we get to put it all together using our vocals and choreography. We learn how to sing, how to blend with others, how to move, and how to take what we have learned from the “page” to the “stage”. Miss Rogers will also be assisting me. Those who took the class last year would highly recommend it to you! It is especially beneficial to those students who would like to feel more comfortable on stage, aim for bigger parts in the musicals, want to audition for the ACA show choir, or just want to better themselves vocally. You do earn a high school credit! So, please consider Vocal Express. You can call the school office to enroll! If you have more questions, just call me at 918-852-2040. Hope to see you in August. Mrs. Post
