Happy New Year!

Due to our later start this year, we will NOT have rehearsal on January 3rd!

We’ll see you January 10th! πŸ™‚

Pizza Theater Auditions will take place on January 26th and 27th at Cedar Brook Elementary. Auditions will go from 4:00-6:00.

What you need to know for auditions:
– You cannot use the songs: Africa – Toto, Greatest love of all – Whitney Houston, Hit me with your best shot/One way or another – Glee Mashup.
– If you want to use the following songs, have a back up just in case as these songs are in our opener mash-up: I love Rock n’ Roll, The Warrior, Walking on Sunshine, Express yourself, Love is a battlefield, True Colors, We got the beat.
– Must be memorized
– Must come in complete costume (if you are waiting to order the costume to see if you made it, please bring a picture of the costume in its entirety)
– Must have a CD/MP3 player with the KARAOKE track. We will not be able to pull up the youtube video like we have done in the past, so please come prepared. Please do not sing acapella.

For new parents: We choose 12 acts to tie the show together. This has to be top notch auditions. We vary the ages, so not all 8th graders will get an act. Seniority does not play a part in the auditions. We take the most prepared and theme appropriate acts for this show.

We hope that we have many girls audition! It’s a great part of Pizza Theater and we love to see the girls prepare for this audition. Feel free to reach out to the directors for guidance in this.

See you on the 10th!!
