TCHA is excited to announce audition, rehearsal, and performance details for our fall musical, Singin’ In the Rain. Please read through this information carefully. For any future updates regarding this and all musicals, be sure to check our website first: http://tcha-mn.com/musicals/
We are doing the junior version of Singin’ In The Rain, which means the script is condensed and author-approved. The Music Man was a full production and the show was about 2.5 hours long. A junior show is about 70 minutes. As a result, our rehearsal schedule won’t be as intense as the one for The Music Man. TCHA’s plan is to do a full length musical every other year, and a junior musical the other years.
Auditions for Singin’ In the Rain take place on Friday, September 9 from 2:00-5:00pm and Saturday, September 10 from 12:00-4:00pm at Mount Olivet Church in Apple Valley (14201 Cedar Ave).
All homeschool students age 12 and older are welcome to sign up for an hour long audition whether they have participated in TCHA or not. Auditions will take place in groups of up to eight students. No preparation is necessary. Click here to sign up for a specific audition time.
If you have a child under the age of 12 and they are interested in being part of the show, contact Hannah Jackson.
Call backs will take place on Saturday, September 17.
To help cover the costs of putting on this show, we are asking all participants – cast and crew – to pay a $75 fee. The maximum fee per family is $150. Make checks payable to TCHA. Please bring this fee to the first rehearsal on October 3.
Rehearsals will begin October 3 and will run Mondays from 2:00 to 6:00pm and Saturdays from 10:00am to 2:00pm. The rehearsals and performances will take place at Mount Olivet Assembly of God Church in Apple Valley in their Family Centre Auditorium.
We have scheduled five performances:
Thursday, November 17 – 7:00pm
Friday, November 18 – matinee show and 7:00pm
Saturday, November 19 – matinee show and 7:00pm
A secret Facebook group has been set up for this production. Once the cast and crew has been set, we will invite them to join the group, along with their parents. This will be an important communication tool along with the TCHA website and group emails.
If you are familiar with Singin’ In The Rain you know it has a lot of dancing in it. In order to help get a head start on the show, Hannah Jackson is offering a week long theatre camp August 8-12. Click here for all the details. Participation is not necessary.
Please join us in praying for this production. May the Lord be glorified as we build community and help students grow in faith and character.
