Info for Narrators, Silly Girls and Enchantress

Enchantress, you will take the following lines;
pg 2.     "If he could learn to love another and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken."

pg 108   "While the Beast's servants battled the villagers, Gaston made his way to the west wing."



Silly Girls, here is your line breakdown;





























 Narrators, here is your line breakdown;
                                            (subject to change) 









The actor has to develop his body.
The actor has to work on his voice.
But the most important thing the actor has to work on is his mind.
~ Stella Adler

I found this series of lessons on line a few years ago while looking for ways to try and help our students learn to use breath support/diaphragmatic breathing for projecting on the stage.   

Eric Arceneaux does a good job of explaining and leading you through exercises.  

This information is just as important for speaking as for singing.

Happy long weekend!

Last week's read thru was so exciting!

This week we'll finish the read thru, starting where we left off, and then get down to business.
Please listen (and follow along in your script) to the first number- Belle. This is a big, wonderful, challenging song, so come ready to WORK! There are solo lines that will be assigned.
We will also be dancing.

*I don't have the track numbers yet, but I'll add them as soon as I can*

Some roles don't appear here, they have already been cast.

~If an actor is listed on the callback sheet, they need to attend callbacks this Tuesday 2:30-5:00
*If an actor is called back for a character who does a great deal of singing, a song name will be posted along with the names of the actors who are calledback for that character. The kids were given rehearsal CDs at the end of their audition and can familiarize themselves with the suggested song. They will most likely be taught part of that song at callbacks so that we can hear them sing it. 

~If an actor is NOT listed on the callback sheet, it is up to you whether or not they attend callbacks this Tuesday 2:30-5:00. They are welcome to attend and watch, but are not required to.
*Not being calledback simply means that we currently have no unanswered questions about these performers. We don't need to call them back in to see something else. 
We want each one of them!! Everyone will be cast. 

~On Friday the 27th the cast list will be posted on the blog.

~There will be NO MASTER CLASS on Tuesday the 31st due to Halloween. 

~On Tuesday November 7th we will have our first read-thru for the entire cast.
Master Class will begin meeting again on our regular schedule, every Tuesday 2:30-5:00.
