Elementary Music


It is once again the time of year that the fourth grade students at Genoa Elementary begin to practice for their musical.  This year, the musical will be performed on November 28th, in the High School Auditorium.  Please Mark your calendars.

All fourth grade students should plan on participating. The title of the musical is “A Kid's Life” Students will have an opportunity to audition for speaking parts next week during music classes. Students who are not interested in auditioning for a speaking part or a solo, will still be included in the performance as part of the choir. We will be practicing for the choir parts during music classes.

Students that ARE interested in auditioning for speaking or solo parts will be expected to provide their own costumes, participate in regular rehearsals that will be held after school, and memorize their parts prior to the musical. (Rehearsals will be held on Monday,Tuesday, and Wednesday afternoons from approximately 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.. (Parents are responsible for transportation from rehearsals, unless students will be walking down to the STARS program after rehearsal)

Students will need permission slips prior to being allowed to audition. Auditions will be held during the normal school day. Please plan on all permission slips being in by THIS FRIDAY, October 13th .

Rehearsal schedules and parts will be sent home as soon as the auditions are completed. Please double-check your schedules before allowing your child to commit to a reading part. Rehearsals are extremely important to ensure a positive experience on stage.

Please fill out the attached permission slip if your child is interested in auditioning for a speaking part in the musical. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me by email or by phone:
