Check your emails today if you've registered as tech crew!  Ms. Emilie sent an email with information about the Dec. 11 tech crew interviews including an application and sign-up genius link.  If you don't see that email please email us a director@trailsidemiddleschoolpta.org to get on our list... a couple of the emails did bounce back to us. We will update the audition page tomorrow afternoon with links to that information as well.

Also - SAVE THE DATE!

Next Friday, Dec. 13 we'll have a team-building event - a "Beauty and the Beast" Movie Night!

Tomorrow (Saturday, Dec. 7) we will send out our first newsletter by email with more information about these two events and more!  So check your email Saturday evening for the latest and greatest!!

The Cast List has been emailed!  Please check your emails.  If you did not receive it please email Ms. Emilie at director@trailsidemiddleschoolpta.org. 

We are so proud of each and every student who brought their talent, creativity, preparation and enthusiasm to this entire process.  We can't wait to work with all of you to create a magical production for our Trailside Wolfpack Community.

Just a quick update - we will not be having additional call backs on Friday 11/22.  We are so proud of each and every young actor that auditioned for this show.  It's going to be a great year!  Look for the cast list next week on Tuesday 11/26 in the evening.

Good Morning Wolfpack families! We're looking forward to another afternoon of cast auditions today, but we also wanted to look forward a bit to December for those that students that are interested in tech crew.

December 11 was confirmed by the school and will be our first crew meeting of the year. We'll have more specific information on the details of this meeting after we get through auditions but please make sure it's on your calendars if your child is interested in crew.  This is when we will be talking to the students about each committee and interviewing students to find out which crews they are most interested in.  We'll also be interviewing students interested in leading a crew.

IMPORTANT - PARENT EMAILS: Also - a reminder that if your child has been auditioning this past week and you have not been receiving emails with the callback lists please make sure to email us at director@trailsidemiddleschoolpta.org to be added.  We are emailing the parent emails provided when you registered your child via the google form (on the audition checklist page linked to the left).  If you aren't receiving the emails then it was likely not provided in that registration form.

That's it for today!  Your young actors are amazing!!  We're so impressed by their preparation, work ethic and wonderful support of each other at auditions this past week!  As always - don't hesitate to email us if you have any questions.  Thanks!!

Today is our first of 2 audition workshops!!

Join us to work with the directors on monologue tips, music and choreography to prepare for the auditions!  Workshops are held today, 11/6 3:30 - 6:00 and Friday 11/8 3:30 - 6:00.  We will cover the same information in both sessions so there is not a need to attend both.  Come dressed to dance (no flip flops or fancy shoes, wear clothes you can move in).  Bring a snack and a water bottle. 

Also - for anyone that hasn't found it - here's the link again to the mti audition materials page where you can find suggestions for song cuts for each character:

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Parent Information Meeting tonight!  We hope we were able to answer some of your questions and we're super grateful for all the volunteer sign-ups!  After we have had a couple days to sort through the sign-up sheets we will put out a sign-up genius for volunteer needs where we have holes and shortly after auditions we will reach out to each crew to schedule preliminary meetings to get started. 

A COUPLE IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Here is the agenda from tonight's meeting for anyone that missed.

Here are the slides from tonight's powerpoint for anyone that missed the meeting.

AND - VERY IMPORTANT - CHOREO VIDEO CORRECTION

As I mentioned tonight, the choreography audition videos have been updated - Video 4 was the wrong version of the video (and stopped part way through the recording)... the correct and full version of the Step-by-step part 2 video is now in the folder so everyone should revisit that link and check to make sure you have the correct videos.  The fourth video should be about 8 minutes long.

DANCE VIDEOS UPDATE

The link for the choreo audition videos is posted!  It is linked over on the Audition Information page to the left.  Important note!  Everyone should learn the first half of the combination (up through the pivot turns).  If you are interested in being considered for the advanced dance ensemble then please perform the whole combination (through the ending poses) at the auditions the week of November 11.   We will teach these dances in person at the audition workshops in 2 weeks so please plan to attend at least one workshop if you need extra help!

  • We have updated our handbook one more time - this time adding a new contact email for families needing to request financial assistance and adding a new Instagram account.
  • To follow us on Instagram look for:  @wolfpackproductions_tms    You should see the Beauty and the Beast Logo as the first thing in the new account!
  • We're working on the video for the dance choreography audition video and will have that up tonight or no later than Saturday evening.  So keep an eye out for that!
  • Don't Forget to mark next Tuesday's Parent Information Meeting on your calendars!  We look forward to meeting everyone Tuesday!

We had a fantastic student information meeting today!!  The entire front three sections of the auditorium were filled with interested cast and crew!  We didn't have time to get through every question they had so please start by checking out the Audition & Crew Information page at the link to the left.  Then if you still have additional questions please don't hesitate to contact the direction team!  We're here to help and hope to make the audition process as easy as possible.  As questions arise we will start a "Frequently-Asked-Questions" page here on the website so check there to see if your question has already been answered.

 

WHAT'S NEXT??

Don't Miss our Parent Information Meeting next Tuesday!  We are asking that at least one adult from each family attend this important meeting.
